Belgian Gaelic sports club earns praise from MEP

11:55 02/08/2013

Irish MEP Martina Anderson has congratulated Craobh Rua, the Belgian GAA club for organising the European Camogie and Hurling Finals which are to take place in Brussels this Saturday. “It is fantastic to see such an important facet of Irish culture being celebrated in Brussels,” she said. “These finals are the biggest event of its kind to take place in Europe, outside of Ireland. Given that GAA clubs are often the first port of call for young Irish men and women living abroad, it is important that its role in helping these young people to integrate into new countries is acknowledged. I wish them well with their event and congratulate them for helping to increase the profile of Irish sports and culture abroad.”
