The history of Gaelic games being played in Canada, before the founding of the Gaelic Athletic Association in Ireland in 1884, proves the determination of Irish immigrants who have arrived in various provinces of Canada. Through their dedication the flag of Irish sports has flown strong, and will continue to fly in the years to come.

Canada's embrace of Gaelic Gaelic Football, Hurling, Handball and Rounders has provided many wonderful memories for those of the Irish-Canadian community and has created an opportunity for all to discover an exciting facet of Ireland's culture within this history book.
