The 40th Anniversary GAA-La
On December 1st, 1974, the Vancouver Irish Sporting & Social Club was established when members of the Vancouver Irish community gathered to decide on the name of a new club. It was Pat O’Donohue who proposed the current name, and it was unanimously accepted by all present that night.
Fast Forward through several waves of emigration to Greater Vancouver from Ireland, and we see a club that has embraced the Gaelic Games as the back-bone of a very successful and vibrant club 40 years later.
40th Anniversary GAA-La Event, October 18th, 2014
at UBC Golf Course
On October 18, 2014, the ISSC is hosting our 40th anniversary GAA-LA event at the University of British Columbia Golf Course. The club would now like to extend an open invitation to all former players, members, supporters, and friends to come along and enjoy the celebration as part of the extended ISSC GAA family. It promises to be a night to remember, a night to renew & to rekindle old friendships.
The event is anticipated to sell out on the night. The ISSC would strongly encourage anyone who wants to purchase a ticket to RSVP / contact the undersigned in order to reserve a ticket in advance of the official ticket launch which will coincide with the Western Canadian GAA Championships (see above).
An event like this does take a high level of financial support from our club and our extended sponsors, however ISSC would also now encourage other parties interested in offering some sponsorship for the night to contact us for further details. email@example.com
