Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club Announces Sullivan's Brewing Co. as New Sponsor Alongside Jersey Reveal
By: Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club
"Irish sports present a unique camaraderie and appreciation for Gaelic culture," says club chairman Noah Fitzpatrick. "We hope that the partnership with Sullivan's Brewing Co. can extend that appreciation to new audiences and go beyond the bounds of what it means to celebrate Irish culture in America, whether playing with teammates or going out for a drink with an old friend."
Sullivan's Brewing Co.'s extensive history began in 1702, as a brand with strong ties to Kilkenny, Ireland. Despite being forced to close back in 1918, the brand has been making tremendous progress since, relaunching in 2016 and moving to overseas markets in America. Sullivan's beer is inspired by hand-brewed, traditional Kilkenny recipes, only containing ingredients local to Ireland. For more information you can visit their website and discover the many ales they have to offer.
Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club hosts a variety of Irish Sports. Hurling, a fast-paced, high-scoring, stick-and-ball 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. Gaelic football is played with similar rules but uses a ball similar in size to that used in soccer. 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 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 throught the year. Interested parties can reach out through email at nashvillegac@
