GAA in Europe
Gaelic Games Europe is the officially recognised governing body for the continent of Europe (excluding the UK & Ireland) for the three Gaelic games and cultural organisations – the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), the Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) & the Camogie Association (CA) whose headquarters are based in Dublin, Ireland.
In recent years the development of Gaelic Games in Europe stepped up a pace with new clubs being set up in Maastricht , Budapest , Copenhagen , Gothenburg, Pamplona , Valencia and Vienna along with clubs in Lyon and other locations in Brittany in France . The success of these clubs is proven by the fact that since 2006:
Men’s football has been organised on a regional basis in twelve locations initially and then over four pan-European Championship & Shield rounds to facilitate additional teams,
The hurling Championship now extends over four rounds and an inter-county invitational event;
A Camogie championship will continue in 2009; and,
Seven venues will host Ladies Football European Championship rounds.
New clubs are under development in various locations and if you are in a city/region where there is no club yet registered, please do not hesitate to get in touch as Gaelic Games Europe may have local contacts in your area.
