Hot on the heels of a sensational Gaelic football season that’s just wrapped up back home, a sunnier, smaller, and potentially just-as-sensational season is about to kick off in southern Spain.

Marbella’s Costa Gaels are back – bigger, bolder, fitter, stronger and faster – and will be hosting an inaugural Andalucian tournament to launch this year’s Gaelic football league in sunny Spain.

The Costa Gaels will be joined once again by teams from Seville and Gibraltar for the southern league, but this year may see the introduction of two new fledgling GAA teams from Cordoba and Granada.

While it’s still early days for these developing clubs, a big welcome is extended to both teams and it’s hoped that they can make it to next week’s Marbella tournament. An expanded league with more teams would give a great boost to the game in Spain, and extend the number of teams in the country to 17.

Marbella Rugby Club will host the Irish football tournament on October 19th, with games starting at 2pm and continuing until around 6pm. There’ll be a tasty BBQ available during the games and afterwards and – more importantly – the clubhouse bar will be open all day long to cater for the thirst requirements of friends, families, spectators and players alike. All are welcome and it promises to be a great day out.

Marbella’s Costa Gaels are raring to go following a tough pre-season training schedule and promise to make their new sponsors – Biddy Mulligans Irish Bar in La Cala de Mijas – and their fantastic adopted home – Marbella Rugby Club – proud in what promises to be an exciting season.

Also, the Costa Gaels has recently begun its juvenile club and is initially offering FREE training for children, boys and girls, from 4 years old to 14 years old on Wednesday evenings at 7pm – 8pm and Sunday mornings from 11am to midday in the Marbella Rugby grounds – feel free to come along!

See you on October 19th!!
