The Buffalo Fenians Gaelic Athletic Association (“the Fenians”) is a not-for-profit, volunteer-led, community-based amateur sporting entity in Buffalo, New York. Through our volunteers, our Club is committed to promoting and preserving Gaelic Games and Irish culture in our community.
The Fenians is the local affiliate of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). The GAA, based in Dublin, Ireland, is a sporting and cultural organization with a presence worldwide. The GAA is celebrated as one of the greatest amateur sporting organizations in the world today.
The Fenians aims to foster an environment with total dedication to social responsibility and where leadership qualities in our youth are encouraged and developed. Through Gaelic Games, we enable our youth to take accountability and ownership of designated club initiatives and instill in them lifetime values. We encourage all our male and female players to strive for excellence. Our Club values children, young people, and adults in our community, and we welcome their participation in all our activities. We regard our Club as a community that prizes an atmosphere of respect, discipline, security, and harmony, in which quality coaching and athletic skills can develop. Community is at the heart of our association. Our Cub has also grown exponentially, especially within our adult men’s, adult ladies, and hurling programs. Our club has children from ages 5 to 17 participating in Gaelic Games throughout the spring and summer months and adults from 18 years plus. Our teams participate in local games and some weekend events that the North American GAA Committee organizes.
