Gaelic Football in Provence (Marseille)

Hi lads! For those of you that spent time in Ireland or that happen to be Irish, you'll surely know about this particular sport.

As crazy as it may seem, Gaelic football is developing at a lightning speed in France, with already 25 clubs playing in 2 leagues (1/3 of the European GAA clubs are French!). Therefore, it is natural that it landed here near Marseille, and a team has been created last summer: Gaelic Football Provence. Based in Aix en Provence, the team has managed to initiate some locals to the beauties of the game and brought a team to the national finals last WE in Brittany, where the lads finished at the 4th place of their league.

Since next season is prepared now, we are broadcasting our message as far as possible to reach new recruits for September! So if you know any Irish expat (male or female, the team is open to both genders), or anyone loving Irish culture (or curious about new sports), don't hesitate to speak about this!

Cheers!

Greg.
