Gaelic Games (GAA)

There are five sports available as part of Gaelic Games at the DCU Dóchas Éireann GAA Club; Gaelic Football, Hurling, Ladies Football, Camogie and Handball. The club has had huge success in recent years, winning titles at various levels and also being one of the largest yet still most welcoming clubs on campus. We promote the Gaelic Games to all students across all campus and cater for all playing levels from Inter County players to people wishing to start the game for the first time. We have playing, coaching, administration, refereeing and performance analysis opportunities available to students.
