NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dec. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club (Nashville GAC), a co-ed Irish sports organization, is thrilled to announce our recent designation as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charity organization. Donors to the NGAC can now deduct contributions to the club under IRC Section 170.
The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club was founded in 2013 to promote Irish sports and culture throughout Middle Tennessee through teaching the history and skills of the traditional sports of Ireland: hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football; holding regular intra-club matches during our spring, summer, and fall leagues; competing in regional and national tournaments;
Hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football are fast-paced, high-scoring field games, the national sports of Ireland, where they are predominantly played. Outside of Ireland, these sports are also found in parts of the world where Irish immigrants settled. While many Americans have yet to discover the ancient games, which have been played for over three thousand years, most are familiar with derivatives hockey, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and even golf.
Club membership is open to anyone over the age of eighteen (18), though plans for a youth organization are forthcoming. Men and women combine for city league play. During travel tournaments, the men and women split to play hurling and camogie. More information can be found on the Nashville GAC website at http://www.nashvillegac.com.
