The Glasgow Gaels are extremely proud of all the young boys and girls in Clydebank who have been picking up Gaelic Football with great enthusiam and skill since the Youth section of the club was founded in March 2014.
In the short time since Glaschu Gaels underage has been established there has been a very steady development of skill amongst our players. We have successfully taken part in a number of national leagues, blitzes, and championships with many of our players being selected to represent Scotland across different age groups. More importantly, the youth club has established a sense-of-belonging for all of the children and parents involved, with a great camaraderie and team spirit–the kids themselves making every new player feel welcome and valued– an example to us all at the club.
The Gaels are an inclusive club that runs on the Six Values of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA): Community Identity; Amateur Status; Inclusiveness; Respect; Player Welfare; and Teamwork. We operate within the “Our Games, Our Code” framework set out by the GAA.
Our mission is to enhance the lives and wellbeing of the community in Clydebank and wider Glasgow through the provision of Gaelic Football for young people in an affordable, safe, and fun environment.
