JUST PLAY- GAA
Retired from competitive GAA? Looking for some new activity which is fun? Never played any GAA before? Then Peil Abú could be the game for you. The game is aimed at both men and women that don’t play competitively, or indeed who have - never played GAA at all at any level. It is effectively mixed gender teams, tag-Gaelic football, where physical contact is not allowed.
Watch out in local media and the club Facebook page for further information.
