On November 27th, 1959, on a cold November afternoon in the basement of Larry Morrin’s house at 27 Galley Avenue, in the parish of St. Vincents, in the west end of Toronto, a meeting was held to form a new Football & Hurling Club. The meeting was attended by Larry Morrin, Danny Columb, Con Barrett, Eddie O’Brien, Jimmy O’Brien, Dermot “Red” O’Neill, John Gilligan, Bill Costello, Louis Delaney, Maurice Houlihan, Martin Shaughnessy, Bill Farrell, Phil Walsh, Vince Howard, Ricky Leahy, Harold Parker, Billy Lehane & Paul McMahon.
Thus was born the St. Vincent’s Gaelic Hurling & Football Club.
