About the Montreal Gaelic Athletic Club

The Gaelic Athletic Association (Cumann Lúthchleas Gael) is an Irish sporting and cultural organisation with a presence on all five continents. It is Ireland’s largest sporting organisation and is celebrated as one of the great amateur sporting associations in the world today.

The GAA is a volunteer-led, community-based organisation that promotes Gaelic games such as Hurling and football. It is part of the Irish consciousness and plays an influential role in Irish society that extends far beyond the primary aim of promoting Gaelic games.

The Association has its headquarters at Croke Park in Dublin, where it has been based since 1908. The stadium has a capacity of 82,300 and hosts some of the highest-profile events in the Irish sporting calendar.

The GAA is underpinned by a democratic elective structure. Members at various levels elect officers to serve positions on a variety of tiers, up to and including the position of Uachtarán (President).
