Join our GAA Teams
TUS GAA Club is a thriving, sporting hub for all students regardless of playing ability and experience level. We aim to cater for each student’s needs, with particular emphasis on Freshers and International Students as a means of assisting their integration into college life. Our GAA Club offers playing opportunities in competitive and recreational/social environments. Whether your desire is to win an All-Ireland, develop your current skills, meet new friends or try a new sport to stay active – TUS will welcome you with open arms. We have existing members in all TUS campus locations in Athlone, Ennis, Clare Street, Clonmel, Moylish and Thurles.
Our GAA Club consists of Camogie, Gaelic Football, Handball, Hurling and Ladies Football. Every academic year, our competitive teams play in a League during Semester 1 – usually commencing in late September and finishing prior to Christmas exams. Semester 2 signifies the start of the Higher Education GAA Championships in each of the respective codes, typically with a playing window of January to March. Our Handball athletes have a series of competitions running nationally and internationally throughout the year also.
The GAA Club also boasts various scholarships and bursaries which our students are invited to apply. These are awarded across all codes of Gaelic Games, and range from entry (bronze) to elite (gold) award packages. We believe sport plays a huge a role in a student’s personal and professional development, and commit to aiding them balance the academic, sporting & social elements of their lives.
