Club members traveled to Ireland

Posted on by stlgacadmin

Ireland-Trip=Recap

During the week of July 8, 2013, The St. Louis Gaelic Athletic Club and Indianapolis Gaelic Athletic Club put aside rivalries for a week to join forces and head to Ireland to play in an international hurling tournament and to train with some of Ireland’s finest coaches and clubs. Although many of the stories happened off the pitch, here is a brief recap of the trip:

Sightseeing on July 8th and morning/early afternoon July 9th: Tour of Croke Park Stadium (approximately 1.5 – 2 hours) and Guinness Storehouse. Also, Hop On/Hop Off Bus at your own pace. (All tours and sightseeing mentioned are included and do not cost extra.)

After arriving and doing some sightseeing on July 8, the group went to Croke Park, the headquarters of the GAA and had a stadium tour which included the locker room and walking through the players corridor as if they were entering the stadium on game day with audio of the crown cheering.  A visit to the GAA Museum followed, where we saw items from the St. Louis club:  A Recruiting Poster, Player trading Cards, and Ann Kinsella’s “Warrior’s aren’t always men” Poster.

From Croke Park, the touring party went to Kilkenny and headed to Indy GAA club member, Ciaran Connery’s Club, the Conahy Shamrocks, for training, exhibition matches, and a reception.  On July 9, they trained with the Conor Brennan, son of Nickey Brennan, former President of the GAA and were treated by a wonderful reception by the Club where St. Louis and Indy presented jerseys to the host Club.

On July 10, the combined team was trained by Martin Fogarty in Kilkenny’s historic Nowlan Park and had a scrimmage. Training was followed by a luncheon with Brian Cody, the legendary trainer of Kilkenny’s hurling team.  Participants took pictures with Brian Cody, he signed sliothars, and he sat down and had lunch with members of both clubs.  Martin Fogarty, the Lord Mayor of Kilkenny, Martin Brett, and  Bryan Cody was presented with the Indy/StL Ireland Jersey. Later the same day, the group went to Kilkenny Town Hall and met with the Mayor for a reception (see above picture).  The Lord Mayor provided a history of Kilkenny, the royal charter dating back to the 1600s.

On July 11, the touring party headed to Limerick, and trained and had an exhibition match with the Sixmilebridge GAA Club. This was followed by a reception where Indy and St. Louis presented Club Jerseys.  Sixmilebridge presented the group with Jerseys and a plaque commemorating he event.

On July 12, the group put their tourist hats on and visited the Cliffs of Moher, a wall of rock that plunges 700 feet to the churning Atlantic Ocean below and saw part of the Burren, a region of limestone hills containing a wealth of rare flowers and prehistoric stone monuments on the way to Doolin.

On Saturday, July 13, the combined clubs headed to Thurles, Tipperary for the hurling tournament. The group was divided into two teams.  They met in the quarter finals, and one team advanced to the semifinals. The group were able to secure tickets for two senior hurling matches played after the tournament, Clare v Wexford and Kilkenny v Waterford.  Brian Cody asked that we all sit together and wear our combined Iny/StL Ireland Jersey.  At halftime, Irish television showed the group and commented on us. Both matches were tied at the end of regulation and went into overtime.

A great time was had by all, and both Indy and St. Louis were taken aback by the hospitality and good will shown by their hosts in Ireland.

The Past, The Present, and The Future!!

Posted on by landoadmin

This February was more rainy than cold when the call went out. But the members answered, gathering in back room of John D. McGurk’s pub in St. Louis’s Soulard neighborhood. Camaraderie and anticipation grew side-by-side, until the announcements were completed.

By the end of the night captains of teams for the St. Louis Gaelic Athletic Club (STLGAC) huddled around the rosters for the eight hurling and two camogie teams set to take the field for The Club’s tenth season. Murmurs of “Midwest Mortgage is stacked with vets,” and “Stravalli’s drafted himself more rookies,” were heard alongside premature playoff predictions, and strategies for their first match that Saturday, March 30.

In 2003, when, Dan Lapke, Pat O’Connor and Paul Rhode transplanted from Milwaukee to St. Louis, they found Tower Grover Park an ideal spot to knock around the Sliothar (ball). Being such a foreign sport, passersby were intrigued. When St. Louis’s freshman hurling team returned from Boulder, Colo., Labor Day weekend in 2004 they brought the North American County Board’s Junior C Championship with them.

Over those ten years, hurling in St. Louis has grown from two teams to eight teams; and moved through four home fields, before settling at St. Vincent’s park in St. Louis County for the last four years. Determined not to be a one-trick-pony, the club plays Gaelic Football there in the fall. And in 2012, St. Louis had its first local camogie league (women’s hurling).

On May 11, 2013, The Club along with Ancient Order of Hibernians (Father Dempsey, Division 1) celebrated those three founders with some grilling, four hurling matches and a camogie match. Two ceremonial throw-ins happened; one to honor the Founders, the other to honor all of the club’s duly elected board members, past and present.

The hurling season ended on July 2, when the O’Shay’s Tribesmen secured the league championship. Led by captains Aaron Wagoner, Mike Harrigan and Kelly DaPrato, the team let a loss in the first week of games be the only loss they’d tolerate. By playing the ball into space, using fitness to win the race, and being willing to shoot for points over the crossbar they had a 10-1-1 record by the end of the championship weekend. During the celebrations, two of O’Shay’s players, Mike White and Greg Grattan, announced they were going to take this opportunity to retire on top.

That evening, tradition dictated that the club members honor the sponsor of the second-place John D. McGurk’s Black Shamrocks, before heading to O’Shay’s on the west end of The Grove.

Though there won’t be any local league matches for the next few months, there’s still a lot going on for The Club.
