Liverpool Wolfe Tones was established in Liverpool, England in March 2010. Prior to this there was only one other Gaelic Football club in Liverpool, and no available outlet for Hurling or Camogie. The club was founded on the principle that we are “One Club for All”- an inclusive club that welcomes all players of all abilities and backgrounds united in our love for Gaelic Games.
To date, we are the only GAA club in the North of England that offers all four disciplines of Gaelic Games. This is something that we take incredible pride in. Liverpool has always been a city with a large Irish population, with deep Irish roots embedded in its history and culture. Today we offer everyone the privilege of competing in Gaelic Games during their time here in Liverpool, whether they are here short term for work or University, or settled here for years. We rely heavily on past and present players adopting the sense of belonging that we promote. We are not an old enough club to be anyone’s “home club”. But the club no less belongs to anyone who has ever embraced it.
All four teams have tasted success already in our very short history and we are extremely proud in everything we have achieved to date. Obstacles that we have faced have always been met with incredible support and we are extremely grateful to all the voluntary support we receive from our members.
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of our conception. We are delighted to have reached our first great milestone and are looking forward to celebrating all of our successes and achievements this year.
However, 2020 has already proved challenging with our goal posts destroyed by Storm Ciara. Players arrived for training early Sunday morning to find the posts fallen and permanently damaged beyond repair. This is a huge setback for us on what should be a year of celebration. We have been humbled by the support that we have received already in replacing the posts and ensuring we continue to compete this season. We continue to welcome any donations we receive, regardless of how small, and are incredibly grateful. (Please find link below).
