NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Feb. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- After a pandemic-imposed two-year hiatus, the Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club (Nashville GAC) will host the Music City Invitational Irish sports tournament on April 2, 2022. Teams from across the United States will compete in hurling and camogie for a shot at the trophy. The tournament will take place between 9 am and 4 pm at Ted Rhodes Fields in Nashville, and the event is free and open to the public. A celebration, trophy presentation, and social gathering for teams and spectators will take place at 7 pm that evening at The Lost Paddy.

Hurling, a fast-paced, high-scoring field game, is the national sport of Ireland, where it is predominantly played, but is also found in parts of the world where Irish immigrants settled. Camogie is the game for women, with slightly adapted rules. While many Americans have yet to discover the ancient game, which has been played for over three thousand years, most are familiar with derivatives hockey, field hockey, lacrosse, soccer, and golf. Hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football are growing in popularity, however, and are now played in approximately fifty cities across the country, including three cities in Tennessee alone.

The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club is always recruiting adults of all ages, genders, and fitness levels. No experience is required, and training will be provided throughout the year. Interested parties can reach out through email at nashvillegac@gmail.com or by direct message on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. The club will also hold multiple recruiting events throughout the month of March, including St. Patrick's Day celebrations at various local businesses, an introduction to Irish sports day, and the Sumner County Irish Fest.
