Gaelic Games, which include Hurling and Gaelic Football, are the native sports of Ireland, and just like all good things Irish… bars, music, dancing and the Irish people themselves, gaelic games have reached some far flung places. There are GAA* clubs all over the world... from Buenos Aires to Brisbane!
But you don’t need to go to the other side of the world to see gaelic games being played on foreign soil. In mainland Europe, there are over 30 GAA clubs. Many of these clubs compete in the European League, where for each round of the 10-round league; teams travel to other GAA clubs in other countries, and play day-long tournaments.
One of the most active and successful GAA clubs in the European League is the Den Haag GAA club.
Den Haag GAA is one of three GAA clubs in the Netherlands. The other two are Amsterdam and Eindhoven.
Established in the 1970’s, Den Haag GAA club has over 50 members, of which, over a third are non Irish, comprising French, English, Turkish, Indian, Dutch, Swiss, Australian and German players.
* The GAA, or the Gaelic Athletic Association, which was founded in 1884, is the governing body of gaelic games in Ireland and throughout the world. (For more info: www.gaa.ie)
