Amidst all the Irish madness that is promised with Marbella’s first annual St Patrick’s Day Festival, the Costa Gaels will be demonstrating to all and sundry just what Gaelic football is all about. On March 17th the team will be holding an exhibition match on the beach just next to Marbella’s Puerto Deportivo, as part of the planned festivities. With so much pedestrian traffic on the paseo, and with the numerous tents and attractions that will form part of the Paddy’s Day celebrations drawing tourists and passers-by to the port, thousands of people will get the opportunity to see a bunch of sun-burned Paddy’s kicking a ball around while they enjoy their Guinness and munch on special Irish tapas. The Costa Gaels are inviting anybody to join in and try out for themselves of one of Ireland’s favourite sports. Kids are especially welcome to take part, and it is hoped that the Paddy’s Day exhibition match will attract a few more players to join the team.
