Fairfield Prep plays Gaelic Football at Irish Festival!
Fairfield Prep looks to repeat as Gaelic Football champions! Fairfield Prep’s Gaelic Football Club will seek to defend its title against Xavier of Middletown on Friday night, June 13 at 7:30 PM, in Connecticut’s second annual high-school Gaelic Football championship. Gaelic Football—Ireland’s biggest traditional sport—combines the speed, skills and suspense of soccer as well as basketball, and it predates both sports. Friday’s game, on Fairfield University’s main athletic field, will be one of the lead-off events at this year’s annual Fairfield County Irish Festival.
The Prep team is sponsored by the Irish Culture Club moderated by Mr. Griffin Reidy '90, theology teacher.
