Founded in 2009, the hosting club Éire Óg Sevilla is one of the oldest Spanish clubs, and a dynamic powerhouse in the vibrant and sunny city of Seville, in the south of Spain. They too have seen huge growth in their LGFA team with well over 20 ladies participating in weekly training sessions, the majority of whom are non-Irish. This impressive diversity was on display at their recent tournament, where 13 of the 16 players were internationals!


The Costa Gaels Ladies Gaelic Football Association’s remarkable success in the Andalusian League, leading to their recent triumph in Seville and their momentum moving into the Iberian Cup, underscores a broader trend of growth and excitement among women in Gaelic Games across Europe. The resounding success of the tournament in Seville reflects the increasing participation, inclusivity, and talent among female members within GGE. This victory not only celebrates the achievements of the Costa Gaels but also symbolizes the collective progress of women’s Gaelic Games, serving as a testament to the dedication, skill, and unity driving the sport’s expansion and evolution throughout the continent.

Happy International Women’s Day!
