Our Club

We have history dating back to 1798.

Based in the Wexford, along the east coast, St. Brigids Blackwater Gaelic Athletic Club is a volunteer-led community organisation. We’re a member of Wexford County Championships and cater for boy and girls of all school-going ages, from U7s all the way to adult. We have a rich history winning the first ever hurling championship in 1888 followed by wins in 1889 and 1900 while also winning two Senior Leinster Hurling Titles and appearing in two All Ireland Finals in 1899 and 1901.
