GAELIC SPORTS WORLD Issue 12, Oct 24, 2014 | Page 2

FOREWORD FROM THE EDITOR GAELIC SPORTS WORLD PUBLISHER: One of the most progressive international GAA associations and a leading light when it comes to letting multiculturalism flourish, Europe GAA showcased the best of European Gaelic football and emerging talent in last week’s European Football Championships. Almost 30 teams from different countries across Europe gathered at Maastricht in Holland for the annual championships in senior men’s and ladies football as well as intermediate and junior grades. The event is highly anticipated each season across Europe and brings the curtain down on the season for the calendar year. The big clubs from the Benelux region did well again but the emergence of new teams from Brittany and Italy taking home trophies for the first time was perhaps the most satisfying and inspiring aspect of this year’s championship. We feature the GAA Euros in this Issue 12. We also look back at the Asian Games and explore possibilities in Russia.
