The ISSC is committed to encouraging all to play and enjoy the Gaelic Games no matter their ability, in an atmosphere that promotes fun, friendship and personal growth.
The Irish Sporting and Social Club was formed in 1974 with the aim of bringing the local Irish community together socially and to promote the games of Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie. Today, the GAA club is a blend of Irish immigrants, second generation Irish descendants, Canadians and other nationalities.

US Open Golf – Brooks Koepka pulled away from the field on the last day with a score of -16 to take home the $2 million paycheck to give 8 points to those who picked ‘Other’!
Lions Tour – It is so rare to finish a drawn series we almost didn’t include it as an option in Know Your Sport! NZ took the first game before the Lions rallied to take Game 2 setting up the ‘winner takes all’ Game 3. A 15-15 draw in the final game left many with mixed emotions & first drawn series since 1955.
Wimbledon Tennis – Serena Williams’ pregnancy robbed 3/4’s of our entrants a chance to win points in the Women Singles. Her sister Venus tried to keep the trophy in the family by reaching the final but was comprehensively beaten by Garbine Muguruza 7-5, 6-0 in 77 minutes. In the Men’s event, Roger Federer claimed his 8th Wimbledon title beating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in a competition plagued with injuries to the main stars.
The Tour de France is into its final week & anything can happen in the closing stages with huge mountain climbs & time trials to be navigated by Chris Froome & the chasing pack. The event finishes Sunday, July 23rd, in Paris.
