Saint Brigid's Gaelic Athletic Club (Irish: Cumann Lúthchleas Gael Naomh Bríd, Béal Feirste) is a Gaelic Athletic Association club from the Malone Road area in Belfast, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It was founded in 1998 by Dermot Dowling and Conor McSherry in the parish hall of St Brigid's Church. There was a strong need for a local GAA club to be set up as there were a huge amount of potential people keen to get into the GAA in the Malone area. It has been described as a 'city team with a country heart' as many of its founders came from all over Ulster including Armagh, Tyrone and Fermanagh.
