Gaelic Games thriving across Europe (GAA Scores)
What do you think of when you hear the words El Clasico? Messi, Ronaldo, 90,000 fans in the Nou Camp with an electric atmosphere witnessing the two giants of European soccer going head to head? Guess again.
It wasn’t the super Spanish soccer derby after all, it was the final of the third tournament in the Iberian GAA championship. Barcelona Gaels and Madrid Harps played out an exciting encounter last Saturday in the Catalonian capital that saw the hosts crowned overall champions for the region with a round to spare.
A Silver Lining (Radio documentary)
As GAA clubs around Ireland are being devastated by emigration, over in Malmö, Sweden, the Stockholm Gaels are attempting to defend their Scandinavian GAA Championship title.
Founded in 1974, Ladies Gaelic Football is still recognised as one of the fastest growing female sports in Europe. With over 1000 clubs in Ireland and membership growing by the day, Ladies Gaelic is reaching women and girls from all over the country. Not stopping there however, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association has many overseas clubs, one of the latest additions coming from Cape Town in South Africa.
11 clubs in 7 provinces: more than 500 active members, men and women, people from 20 countries.
