Gaelic Success for Teachers

24 June 2016

Last weekend Miss Clover, Miss Kisantal and Miss Cook traveled, with their team mates, to Berlin to take part in the third round of the East and Central Europe Region Gaelic Football Championships. This was the biggest ladies regional round ever hosted, with ten ladies teams competing.

The Slovak Shamrocks came second in their group; beating the Venetian Lionesses and narrowly losing by a point to Belgium.  We then proceeded into the playoffs, beating a team from Munich before facing Belgium again in the semi-finals.  Success was on our side as we beat Belgium to proceed to the finals - a position we had never played before.  Facing Holland, a previously championship winning team, we put up our strongest fight but unfortunately lost.

Gaelic football is an Irish team sport, deriving from traditional irish ball games.  It is played between two teams, ultimately of 15 players but due to the size of clubs in Europe, the men's team most commonly play 11-a-side, and the ladies 9, or like us at the weekend, only 7-a side.  It involves a hybrid of skills including football, rugby, basketball and volleyball.  Despite the complexity of the rules it's a great form of exercise and lots of fun to play.  If you are interested in knowing more then please contact sarah.cook@bisb.sk.
