ACB Chairman, Paraic McGrath and son Joseph. They play on the same team in Bangkok and Joseph, who never lived in Ireland, learned to play Gaelic football in Asia.

In our last visit trip to Asia this year, GaelicSportsCast speaks with Asian County Board Chairman Mayo man, Paraic McGrath, about the GAA scene in the region. Over the past two decades, Gaelic sports have been making steady progress where today some 600 players from various ethnic backgrounds participate annually in five major competitions throughout the region.  The Asian County Board is planning for the future and one day hopes that an Asian team can represent them in the championships back home in Ireland.
