Without further ado, we present to you Tacoma Co-op’s brand new, original Home Kit!
Over the weekend, the Hounds spent some time down at the Sean-nós Festival held in Olympia on The Evergreen State College’s campus. While there to put on a quick hurling demonstration, we were able to mingle with some of the other festival-goers. We’ll have to practice to keep from butchering them, but we tried to pick up a few phrases for when we send a couple Co-op members to Ireland in June.
One of the Co-op’s members, Sean Davis, was honored as a Finalist at the 17th Annual Ahead of the Class award ceremony on April 2nd 2018. 10 teachers from the Renton School District were nominated for the awards, 5 of whom were chosen as winners. The Ahead of the Class award program was founded by the Renton Chamber of Commerce, Renton schools, and Renton businesses to enhance community awareness of the excellence of education in Renton.
Did you know that on July 14th 1873, a historic telegraph declared Tacoma as the terminus of the Transcontinental Railroad? Well 145 years on, Tacoma Co-op and the Hartford Kevin Barrys are forming a transcontinental team to take on Ireland!
On every journey, you cross paths and share the road with various groups and individuals. As we begin our journey at the Co-op, we’ve been extremely fortunate in our getting to know the amazing people at Sumner CrossFit.
TGAC is excited to announce our participation in the Hurling competition of San Diego’s West Coast 7’s tournament, held annually on Memorial Day! The tournament follows a two-day format, with group stages being played Saturday (5/26) to determine Sunday’s knockout rounds.
We’re excited to announce the formation of Tacoma Gaelic Athletic Co-op! You can call us TGAC, “the Co-op,” or “the Hounds” for short.
TGAC formed as an American GAA club and team dedicated to promoting Irish sports and challenging each other to work towards improving our ourselves and the community around us in the Tacoma metropolitan area.
