A Chara, after years of hard work and dedication, Shannon Gaels GAA have recently signed a contract securing a long term Lease for the use of 7 acres within Frank Golden Park as their home grounds. This development will secure the future of GAA for our children and future generations in Queens and the Greater New York area.
We ask that you join with us and help us in achieving our goal.
Shannon Gaels GAA was founded in 2002 and to date we are the only Minor GAA club serving the children of Queens. For our first seven years we had no regular field to train on. After reaching out to the New York City Mayor’s office and the Queens Parks Department, we were accommodated with Frank Golden Park in College Point. We subsequently signed a long term lease with the City of New York for the use of over seven acres within this park. We must now raise a significant portion of the funds needed to turn this area into our “Field of Dreams”.
This project represents something special and something different. We believe it will provide an anchor for Gaelic Football and Hurling here in New York that will run right through the 21st century. The following will tell you about the project. It will also tell you how we intend, with your help, to fund it. We believe we have a funding strategy which is practical, but we do need your help to make it happen.
Our “Field of Dreams” is a huge challenge to all of us. But it is one that is necessary and achievable. We look forward to you working with us to deliver something that is very special indeed.

In our togetherness, castles are built
We have put in place a Shannon Gaels GAA family wide strategy to fund our Field of Dreams project. It’s based on the tried and tested GAA ethos of depending on everyone and having a place for everyone.
We are commited to sharing our work and its benefits; and of putting in rather than taking out. Just as we will all benefit from our Field of Dreams in our own ways, so can we all help make it happen in our own ways.

Nothing is done without effort is done without effort
