College GAA scene in America

(Oldest Posts First)

Well lads, Heading over on exchange for semester 1 of next year, possibly to Texas a&m or Iowa State. Was genuinely interested to kow what the collge scene for gaa is over there, or even if theres one at all. Would love to kick a bita ball across the water.

It is getting stronger year by year. Hurling is the more predominant sport, played mainly in the Mid-West and California. Not too sure about the football scene although there is some talk of it getting started in Texas A&M. Best bet is to take a look at this site, it is the overall governing body of collegiate GAA with sub sections for california, the mid-west and now more recently the south

There's talk of football getting going in the Midwest, not as far west as Iowa I'd say. But, these clubs would be start ups this semester. Next year is a good bit off yet.

Irelandscall123 : Ireland may be calling boss but it's unlikely any of the colleges in the Midwest or New York would see you as an addition to academia.
