Atlanta Co-Ed Hurling

Atlanta Co-Ed Hurling

In the southern state of Georgia, a state not known as a traditional stronghold of Gaelic games in the US, Atlanta GAA nontheless has been steadily making progress introducing the games to young Americans.  The new Chairman of Atlanta GAA is Kieran Claffey and he speaks to GaelicSportsCast about how the 1996 Olympic Games helped to grow Gaelic games in the city, the attractiveness of  both ladies football and hurling for Americans, and, the challenges that lie  ahead.
