Tasmanian Gaelic Football and Hurling Association
The Tasmanian Gaelic Football and Hurling Association (TGFHA) was established in 2007 and is the ruling body for Gaelic Football and Hurling in the Australian state of Tasmania. The TGFHA is affiliated to the Gaelic Football and Hurling Association of Australasia where it is represented by a Vice-President.
The TGFHA runs weekly training and matches for both males and females in Gaelic Football at the North Chigwell Sports Ground during summer in order to avoid clashes with traditional winter sports such as Association Football and Australian Football. The TGFHA hopes to encourage involvement in Hurling in the future.
The TGFHA sends male and female Gaelic Football teams to interstate competitions annually.
The TGFHA runs men's and women's local 7-a-side Gaelic Football competitions with the following teams. The Men play for the Keiran Middleton trophy.
- Lauderdale Bombers (formerly known as Clarence - first season 2011/12)
- Hobart Celts (first season 2010/11)
- Old Lindisfarne Saints (first season 2010/11)
