Six of the best British GAA club crests

Rugby Gaels GAARUGBY GAELS

Warwickshire-based Rugby Gaels have a stylish but effective crest, which features the logos of all four provinces in Ireland with the Irish tricolour on top.

Formed in 1999, the club boast players from Ulster, Leinster, Munster and Connacht, so it’s a fitting crest for the current crop.

Proudly Sponsored by Quigleys Bar Rugby, they operate in Division 3 of Warwickshire GAA League.

Kilburn Gaels crest GAA

KILBURN GAELS

One of the most successful hurling clubs in London, Kilburn Gaels boast a simple yet endearing crest.

The self-proclaimed ‘biggest and most vibrant hurling club’ in London, Kilburn are based in the north west of the city and formed in 1997.

Their rise has been rapid, and the club narrowly missed out on All-Ireland success after losing the 2015 Intermediate Club Final to Belfast outfit O’Donovan Rossa.

The Enfield-based GAA club have a simple but classy crest design. The club themselves have enjoyed success on the pitch lately too – in 2014 they won the Intermediate Championship in addition to the Murphy Cup, Shiels Cup and finished runners up in the All-Britain Championship.

The club were formed in 2005 by an amalgamation of St Theresa’s of Ponders End and Shannon Rovers/Sam Maguires of Wood Green to ensure that North London continued to have a GAA football club and now compete at a senior level in London.

The London Senior Champions pay homage to their Donegal origins with this classic badge.

Formed by Donegal men in 1962, TCG won the London Senior Football Championship for a record 16th time last year.

The club have played in many All-Ireland Club Championship quarter-finals against strong teams from Ireland, but have never been able to reach the semi-final. This year they were dumped out by a very good Clonmel Commericals outfit.
