 This year, Gaelic Sports Club Luxembourg (GSCL) celebrates its thirtieth year.


   To mark the occasion, the Club is publishing a book with the above
   title. It runs to 144 pages lavishly illustrated with 32 pages in full
   colour. The book tells the Club’s story over the past three decades, the
   matches played, places of cultural significance visited, the evolution
   of the European hurling and Gaelic football leagues, and it captures the
   energy and competitiveness that goes into these sports.


   Sport was always very special for the Irish; there are many references
   to the game of hurling in the mid-12th century Book of Leinster. A
   detailed survey of conversations in Ireland revealed that sport was the
   most popular topic of discussion in the country – far ahead of such
   subjects as the weather, politics and religion. It is not surprising
   that the first association founded by the Irish in Luxembourg was a
   Gaelic sports club.


   The book also recounts the Irish presence in Luxembourg from the time
   Willibrord came to this area with a group of Irish some thirteen
   centuries ago, to the present day.


   Last year, GSCL fielded four teams – camogie (Ladies’ version of
   hurling), Ladies’ football, hurling and Gaelic football – and they have
   played at venues from Rennes to Munich, from Copenhagen to Barcelona.
   Gaelic Games have secured a niche on the European Continent.
   Luxembourg’s pivotal and entertaining role in achieving this is
   celebrated in the book which is generously supported by AIB Luxembourg.


   This is the first history of a Gaelic Games club on the Continent, with
   all the proceeds going to the running of GSCL.


   The history is now available at 15 euros a copy, payable to
   LU83 0021 2375 5690 0000


   Please email orders to or telephone 00 352 621 683892. For
   alternative ordering arrangements, please see GSCL website
