Other news.

Juvenile Club

We are aiming to form a juvenile club for 16 and under in Marbella. We are raising funds and the club will be “Conquering La Concha” mountain in the next few weeks as part of this effort. If you would be interested in getting involved in the club, bringing your kids, or even playing just let us know – we would love input, support and more members!

Irish Independent and RTE

We got some ink! The Irish independent interviewed the club recently and publish an article today (Wednesday the 14th) on Page 42. Following on from that we have just had a call form RTE Radio who want to interview our (in)famous Iraqi Goal Keeper – Achilles!

He should be on the air tomorrow on the The John Murray Show at 10:30am our time!  (If you don’t know Achilles then now’s a good chance to find out about him – From Baghdad, he’s a real Tipperary supporter in the Hurling and the permanent goal keeper for the Costa Gaels Team – he even has the bullet wounds to prove it!)

You can catch it online here:

We think this is great as its positive news not only for us but for the area in general.

See you all on Sunday!
