On my recent trip to the middle east I took a spin down to Abu Dhabi to not just check out the sites but to investigate the growth of Gaelic Games in this region in greater detail.

Abu Dhabi is the venue that hosts the annual Middle East GAA championships. Any persons that have caught the hurling or Gaelic Football bug have the choice of not one but 2 clubs located in the region. The first and more established club is Abu Dhabi Na Fianna which was founded in 1995( a great year for all gaa fans as the Dubs won the all-Ireland) and the second club which was founded more recently in 2017 is Al Re-emerging Shamrocks GAA club.

Abu Dhabi is a truly stunning City, the lucky men and women that get to play here are truly fortunate.
