Liverpool Wolfe Tones CLG is a new Gaelic football club in the city of Liverpool with both mens and ladies football teams. The demand for Gaelic football in Liverpool has increased and we have started this new club to give the opportunity for those who wish to partake in the game here in Merseyside. We are currently recruiting new players and members. Everyone is welcome whether they have played Gaelic football before or not.
