What members say about us

Still not convinced? Here’s what our long serving Gaels have to say about the club

My Irish friend brought me along for training one day, and I haven’t stopped coming since! Have had a lot of fun travelling around Europe for tournaments!”
I joined in the second year during COVID, and had a grand time at the training sessions meeting people and more.”
Had never played the sport before and came for a few trainings and found Gaelic Football to be a lot of fun! Became especially fond of hurling too, once I managed to puck around with the sliotar.”
