Welcome to Our Club

Salthill-Knocknacarra is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in the Salthill and Knocknacarra areas in Galway City, Ireland. The club is a member of the Galway GAA. Salthill/Knocknacarra GAA Club caters for huge numbers of young boys and girls and adults who play Football, Hurling, Ladies Football and Camogie in the parishes of Salthill and Knocknacarra.

The club was founded in 1966 under the banner of Cumann Naomh CiarĂ¡n. During the 1980s the Club became a major underage force in Galway football under the guidance of Club greats such as Tony Regan and Liam Sammon. This resulted in over ten championships at both minor and U-21 levels being won. This underage success was then transferred onto the Senior stage in 1990 with the Club winning its first Senior football county title followed by a Connaught Club title. The Club lost the All-Ireland Final in 1991 to Lavey of Derry after a spirited effort.

Since the 1980s the Club has always had successful underage teams in football. Minor and U21 finals are regularly contested but the Club did however need to wait under 2005 to win its next County title which was followed by an All Ireland Club title on St Patricks Day in 2006 against St Galls of Antrim.

Salthill-Knocknacarra has traditionally been recognised mainly as a major GAA Club in Galway with a great reputation for producing strong underage teams. There has been significant expansion in hurling in the club since 2000, yielding two county juvenile championship titles to date, in addition to a number of runner-up finishes in Divisions A and A1 and increased representation on county underage panels each year, while our adult hurling team currently competes at Junior A. With a long tradition of camogie in club stretching back to 1979, the club has celebrated a mix of adult and juvenile county titles in each decade since and also won a Connacht Junior title. Ladies football also has flourished in recent years and the club has won titles at underage and junior level, capturing a Junior county title in 2003, and players are now playing for Galway on the inter-county stage.
