Capilano Rugby Club
On the August Long Week-end, at Capilano Rugby Club in North Vancouver, the ISSC hosts the Western Canadian GAA Championships at Capilano Rugby Club, in North Vancouver. It will be the largest tournament staged in the history of the Division, and it is expected that there will be 8 Men’s teams, and 5 Ladies teams competing for the Division’s bragging rights.
The tightest Alberta Cup in Ladies Football has just finished, and while the winners were the same, their path to glory was made very difficult with strong displays from Edmonton and Calgary. Reiging Tom Gibbins Western Canada Champions, the Vancouver Harps, will have to be on their game if they are to successfully defend their crown.
In Men’s competition, Edmonton defend their title, intent to prove that they don’t need to be in the City of Champions to win this title. Vancouver will be strong this year, however they know that the hotly contested Alberta Cup will mean, their guests will hit the ground running when they arrive. The Saskatchewan boys will hope to do one better in 2014 and perform on the Senior stage. Also, look out for new local club, the Fraser Valley Gaels who will look to impress on their first Championship sojourn.
With such a large gathering, the ISSC is hosting a festival that runs parallel to the Gaelic Games! Local Irish / Celtic businesses are encouraged to attend and set-up a stall at our event. Please connect with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending and promoting your business.
