Welcome to the Tasmanian Gaelic Football and Hurling Association.
Established in 2007, we promote and administer Gaelic sports on the beautiful island of Tasmania, Australia. We are an incorporated non-profit association run by volunteers.

Our aim is to provide a safe and enjoyable playing environment for players of varying ages and abilities to participate in Gaelic sports.

We are affiliated with the Gaelic Football and Hurling Association of Australasia and, in turn, the worldwide Gaelic Athletic Association family.

We look forward to helping you participate in Gaelic sports as a player, coach, official, spectator or supporter. Although we are a small organisation, we do our best to provide a positive experience for all our members.
