GAA in Chicago

(Oldest Posts First)


I'm thinking of moving to Chicago on a working visa and would be interested in playing football over there. Has anyone any contacts for any clubs I could get in touch with, was thinking of St Brendan's because they are the only club I've heard of in Chicago.

Is there many clubs and much of an Irish community out there?

I would suggest John Mcbrides as they are located in the north side of the city and that is where most students tend to come when they come over for the summer. They have their own website, you can get a link for it from club links from this website.

I agree Padraig Pearses are a great club run by great people. You can't do better in Chicago.
