About Us

Éire Óg Ottawa Hurling Club was founded in 2012 with the goal of bringing the great game of hurling to the National Capital Region of Ottawa.

The club started with a co-ed senior team that play against Montreal, Quebec City, Syracuse, Rochester, Halifax, Na Piarsaigh and Clan na Gael in various tournaments held in Montreal, Ottawa, Syracuse and the Eastern Canadian Championships alternates location every year.

The 2017 Eastern Championships were held in Ottawa and the 2018 Championships will be held in PEI.

In the past two years, we have seen an increase in the numbers of Canadian born players who have taken to the game and have joined us to play hurling. 

In 2014, a youth element was added to the club and we formed the first youth hurling club in Canada. The same year we brought a U8, U12 and U14 camogie players to CYC (Continental Youth Championships) in New York where our U8’s were runners up and our camógs won gold and silver. It was a fantastic start to our new youth club. In 2015, we travelled to Maine and took part in a four-day programme of training and games against New York, Boston and teams from Maine. In 2016, we travelled to CYC in Chicago where our U12’s took home silver and our camógs came away again in U14 and U16 with silver and gold. Another successful year. In 2018 we will travel to CYC in Boston.

2015 saw the start of our schools programme, where we now provide hurling clinics and demos in both Elementary and High Schools in the are.  South Carleton Secondary School was the first school in Canada to receive funding for a full set of equipment which they received in March 2018.

2018 also saw the addition of a senior camogie team and they played the first game against Montreal in May, the first camogie game between two Eastern Canadian teams.  They also took part in the Montreal May tournament.

Both our seniors and youth train in Spring, Summer and Autumn – indoors and outdoors – providing a great programme for all to enjoy.
