What a great weekend for Gaelic Sports in Asia. We had Japan GAA on the hallowed turf of Croke Park and the launch of our 2017 FEXCO Asian Gaelic Games. Please stay tuned for more pictures for both events.
On July 21/22/23 Orang Eire GAA held their 10 year anniversay OE Gathering in Clifden and what a gathering it was!!!! Players and former players from around the world and those living in Ireland all descended on Clifton, Gawlay for a weekend of football and activities. The Friday had old friends being reacquainted and new friendships being made. The Saturday saw the games held at the Clifden GAA fields (with a beautiful view in the background). The men and women took to the fiels in some very good games and for the first time Paddy Mac picked fair mens teams (most likely the last time as well as his team lost 🙂 ). A great day out was had by all associated with the KL Club. The Saturday night had some dinner and drinks at the hotel – where a long term KL player lost his first ever boat race!!!! The night went long but everyone was up and ready on Sunday morning to visit the Roundstone Regatta on the Sunday. Everyone enjoyed a full day at Roundstone though I am not sure how much boat racing was taken in. The Orang Eire club put on a truly great weekend and a massive thanks goes to Pat and Jenn Gorham who helped organize the weekend.
Well done Orang Eire on a spectacular weekend of fun and games. ... See MoreSee Less
