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 Vancouver in 1974. The aim when creating this club was to bring 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.

The club now runs a number of successful teams across all levels for both the mens and ladies Gaelic football.

The ISSC continues to promote and support Irish cultural and sporting events in Greater Vancouver and are always welcoming new members.

In 2024, ISSC will celebrate its 50th Anniversary to commemorate the clubs’ success and recognize the dedication and commitment of its members throughout the years.
