Hurling is an outdoor team sport of ancient Gaelic origin and played with sticks and a ball. The game, played primarily in Ireland, is arguably the world's fastest field team sport in terms of game play and is Ireland's national sport. We're currently looking for people that are interested in playing the great game of hurling.

Akron Celtic Guards Alumni

As our club continues to grow and thrive promoting Gaelic games in Northeast Ohio, we would love the opportunity to reconnect with you!
We have begun an initiative to develop an Alumni Association to reconnect with players, supporters, and friends of the Akron Celtic Guards. Please find attached a letter providing you insight into this new initiative, as well as what your team has been up to in recent years, and how you can get involved!
We are extremely proud of where our organization is heading in it's 15th year. Please feel free to forward this to any of your former teammates, supporters, and friends. We'd love to grow this network of alumni as we continue to promote a game that at one time or another, we all have had a passion for.
We Hope to hear from you!
