St Michaels GFC Galway City
St. Michaels GAA Club was formed in 1956. The Claddagh, Shantalla and The West provided the players for the new club, with a huge reservoir of talent coming on stream in the Shantalla area where the Corporation had started building housing estates in 1943.
Since their inception, St. Michaels have introduced thousands of young Galwegians to Gaelic Games, with a very good under age structure . The club was the brainchild of Pa Boyle whose main aim was to encourage the local youth to enjoy competitive games. Through these games, strong bonds have been formed, and this has helped maintain strong commitment from a large group of players and volunteers. The Club is in rude health today and is now exclusively a football club. The club reached the Galway senior football final in 2014.
