Fáilte! Welcome! Some Wikipedians have formed a project to better organize information in articles related to Gaelic games. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help or have any questions in relation to this project, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there, or write yourself up below.

This WikiProject aims to create, expand and improve listings about and related to the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and sports associated with it, such as hurling, camogie, Gaelic football, Gaelic handball, and rounders. The scope of the project covers the article on the sports, the competitions, the various GAA boards, club teams, and players.

edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Wikipedia:WikiProject Gaelic games:

Note that some of these players may have pages already created under a different title. If this is the case, the template for that year's All Stars (Template:XXXX All Stars) needs to be altered to reflect the correct article name. See Wikipedia:WikiProject Gaelic games/bio for details on the layout of the typical GAA player biography.


Formatting/Structure for the following types of articles:


If an article already exists in the location you intend to create the following Disambiguation should be used


Move x GAA to x GAA (location) and create your new article at x GAA (location) for example Erin's Own GAA (Cork). The undisambiguated title then should then become a Disambiguation page Erin's Own GAA

Gaelic footballers[edit]

Create x as x (Gaelic footballer) , if x (Gaelic footballer) already exist move x (Gaelic footballer) to x (County Gaelic footballer) and create your new article at x (County Gaelic footballer) for example Paddy Kennedy (Sligo Gaelic footballer) is correct as Paddy Kennedy (Kerry Gaelic footballer) also exists and Paddy Kennedy (Gaelic footballer) is a disambiguation page


Create x as x (hurler) , if x (hurler) already exist move x (hurler) to x (County hurler) and create your new article at x (County hurler) for example David Forde (Clare hurler) is correct as David Forde (Galway hurler) also exists and David Forde (hurler) is a disambiguation page


See Wikipedia:NGAELIC
