Cologne Celtics GAA was established in order to bring the Gaelic Games to the West of Germany and to the people of North Rhine-Westphalia!
Although the club got off to a relatively slow start in a city saturated by various sports clubs, Cologne Celtics players have been regularly sending players to the European Hurling & Camogie Championships each season and competing alongside European GAA clubs. In 2016 several Cologne GAA players were even selected to represent the European and German Hurling teams at the GAA World Games, held in the Irish capital Dublin.
The club is now officially part of the UniSport setup at the University of Cologne, which gives all our members access to proper training facilities. Hurling/Camogie training is held on Thursday evenings (19:00 – 21:00) and Gaelic Football on Saturdays (12:00 – 14:00).
So if you would like to play Hurling/Camogie and Gaelic Football as well as have fun (or the ‘craic’ as the saying goes in Ireland) with like-minded people, then please get in touch. Absolute beginners are always welcome, so don’t be shy!
