St Josephs History - The Story so Far
St Joseph's Gaelic Football Club was founded in April 2005 by Noel Griffin (a native of Carraroe in County Galway, Ireland) to introduce youngsters in the area to the sport of Gaelic football.
The club was named after the St Joseph's parish of Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire and was accepted into the Hertfordshire Gaelic Athletic Association (or Herts GAA) initially as a Junior club and began playing games against other sides in the County from Watford, St Albans, Luton and Oxford.
In 2010, after previous disappointments, the club were delighted to record their first honour when the Under-16 side lifted the Herts County Championship.
In 2011 the club fielded a senior side for the first time. In 2014 the Under-14s won the Herts County Championship.
This year (2015) St Josephs will be running sides in the under-8, 10, 12, 14, 16 age groups as well as the senior side.
