Over the weekend, we were pleased to announce our first overseas GAA sponsorship with Manhattan Gaels, a GAA club based in NYC. Alongside Dundalk company, Defy Sports Apparel, we designed a new range of training tops for the ladies team for the forthcoming season. The jerseys feature a striking blue colour with the skyline of New York City buildings faded in the background. On the sleeves an orange stripe each side. Irishify Co-Founder Paddy Casey had this to say about the new sponsorship opportunity. "We're excited to bring the best town (Dundalk) and the best city (New York) in the world together!"
About Manhattan Gaels
Manhattan Gaels began as an idea between friends one evening in late 2012. Since then, it has thrived off the enthusiasm of many Irish ex-pats and Irish-Americans based in Manhattan. Manhattan Gaels (Gaeil Manhattan) is the first GAA Club to be based in New York’s busiest and best-known borough. Home to the Empire State, Wall Street, 5th Avenue, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and lots of other world re-known landmarks. Their club is open to everyone and all they ask is that participants are up for enjoying Ireland’s unique games. This includes Gaelic Football, Hurling/ Camogie, Rounders & Handball. They also promise a taste of Ireland’s craic and culture!
Defy Sports Apparel

Their jerseys are designed with a cooling fabric, perfect for those humid New York evenings in summer. These innovative jerseys manage body temperature promising to deliver 'absolute comfort' whatever the weather. In addition, they are also made from 100% Polyester, making them lightweight, breathable and durable.
Irishify and Defy Sports Apparel would like to wish the Manhattan Gaels ladies team the very best of luck in 2021 and beyond.
