The Philadelphia Divisional Board of the North American GAA is the governing body of hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. It is affiliated to the North American Board. Its headquarters are at the Limerick Field Complex in Pottstown, Pennsylvania.[1] Until the 2006 North American Convention, its territory included the Washington DC/Baltimore area.[2]


The first recorded evidence of the Gaelic games in Philadelphia was in 1914 when a meeting was allegedly held at Philo Celtic Gaelic Football Club.[3]
