Claregalway CLG is a Gaelic Athletic Association club based in Claregalway, County Galway, Ireland. The club is a member of the Galway GAA. Underage teams up to U-16's play in the Galway league and championships, while the Minor, Under-21 and Senior teams compete in all further levels.

Although not a traditional stronghold of football, the success of the County Galway football teams in the 1950s/60s stimulated the imagination of local football enthusiasts. It was not long after Galways "Three In A Row" that the football club was founded in 1968.

The club achieved senior status in 2002 and have competed in Galway Senior Football Championship ever since.

Notable players include Brian O'Donoghue, Danny Cummins, Barry Cullinane and Adrian Faherty. Danny and Adrian are members of the county panel. Current Cork panellist Paddy Moran is a former underage star with the club.
