Gaelic Sports 2023

The Buffalo Fenians are the local affiliate of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Today, we are proud to field 3 Gaelic teams in the form of ladies' football, men’s football, and hurling. In 2023, we are excited to welcome back the Fenians Youth program, open to children ages 6 & up.
