Club History

Fullen Gaels is the only hurling club in Lancashire and is based in Manchester. The club was formed in 2005 in Manchester by a small group passionate about the game and also with a desire to reintroduce the sport to Lancashire after an absence of two decades, when the Sarsfield club disbanded.
The club's name is derived from Fr. Emmet Fullen of Derry, who was a founding member of St Lawrence's GFC, previous Lancashire Board chairman and Lancashire player.
The crest represents symbols of Manchester, GAA, as well as representing Fr Fullen. The top left is the Fullen family crest while the top right is the shamrock representing the Irish heritage of the club. These are on amber and black backgrounds, the club colours. At the bottom of the crest, the bee represents the working bee of Manchester, a symbol of Manchester from the industrial revolution when Manchester was known as the hive of activity with hard-working citizens. The ship is an iconic symbol of Manchester representing the Manchester ship canal and 2005 is the year the club was formed.
