Gaelic football is rapidly growing in popularity in the United States. In San Diego, there are Gaelic sports opportunities both for adults and children. Additionally, the San Diego group is unique in that it has created a charitable initiative called Irish Outreach San Diego. Here is a link: http://www.irishyouamerrychristmassd.org/ The athletes I met are friendly and generous people. I thought they were wonderful with our children.
The West Coast Sevens Gaelic Games Tournament will be held in San Diego over Memorial Day weekend. This will include Men’s and Women’s Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie. Here is a link to the event: http://www.sd7s.com/
On Sunday, June 11 the club will hold a “Cul Camp”. This is a skills session for Gaelic Football. The athletes suggested this is a good start for the children to learn the fundamentals.
