The Raleigh Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) is proud to announce Week 5 of the inaugural Raleigh GAA Pub League. The purpose of these pub leagues is to introduce newcomers to the club's sports - Gaelic football and hurling - and to begin the season for existing club members in a fun setting. Also we want to give something back to those Irish pubs that so generously sponsored us in 2013!
On each of the dates mentioned below, there will be co-ed games between 11am and 1pm. Once the games are over, we will then all travel to the sponsor pub for brunch. We also are trying to use venues that are close to the sponsoring pub.
Oh did we forget to mention that this pub league is free! Why wouldn't you go???
