CHAMPIONING GAELIC FOOTBALL IN LONDON
Powerday is proud sponsor of the Gaelic Athletic Association club, Tir Chonaill Gaels, one of the most successful Gaelic football clubs in Britain.
We believe sport is vital to ensure health and wellbeing, as well as playing an important role in bringing communities together. To encourage the participation and enjoyment of as many young Londoners as possible, we support and promote a wide range of grass roots sports across the Capital.

Gaelic football in the Borough of Ealing
Tir Chonaill Gaels was formed in 1962 and now runs 13 teams for juniors and seniors, men and women. We have sponsored and supported the Greenford based club, in the London Borough of Ealing, for many years. As well as providing the grounds for Gaelic football games in London, the facility is a valuable hub for the community and a centre for the Gaelic Athletic Association in London.
“Powerday’s sponsorship means we at Tir Chonaill Gaels can run teams from under 6s right the way through to senior along with two ladies’ teams. It’s not just the funding though but the interest shown by Powerday chairman, Mick Crossan, the amount of local sports that Powerday supports is truly amazing and I hope it continues for a long time.”
Tom Mohan, Club Chairman, Tir Chonaill Gaels
What is Gaelic football?
The amateur sport of Gaelic football is the most widely played sport in Ireland. Teams of 15 compete on a grass pitch to score goals and points using a combination of handling and kicking the round ball. Said to be a cross between football and rugby, with similarities to Aussie Rules Football, this Irish sport is a tough and skilful game that provides thrilling entertainment for both players and spectators.
