Report

Galician Gaelic Football started in 2010, when efforts were made through social media and posters to start a few clubs, with Fillos de Breogan the first. Teams entered the Iberian Championship but, soon, enough exponential growth among villages led to creation of the Galician Gaelic Football League in 2013.

Estrelos de Velmelha (Red Stars) won the first two Championships in 2013-14 and 2014-15. Irmandinhos would win the title on points difference from Fillos de Breogan in 2016-17 and in 2017-18 would win again with a perfect 13-0 win-loss record.

About Galicia GAA

Within Europe GAA, there are two Countries / Regions where the Gaelic Football is played entirely by Natives in small towns and villages like in Ireland: Brittany (NW France) and Galicia (NW Iberia – Spain/Portugal). These two Celtic Countries both have Men’s and Women’s Leagues played on a weekly basis, rather than in tournaments like in the other World Games Counties.
