Irish emigration levels to Washington DC, hasn’t been as high as other major US cities and as a result Gaelic games in the country’s capitol have been slow in getting started.  Nevertheless, the Washington DC Gaels have made steady progress over the past two decades in bringing the games to a young breed of American athletes, who find that Gaelic football, hurling and Camogie are exciting and exhilarating new sports. Club Chairperson, Nora Reilly, a native of Liverpool in England, and Development Officer, American player Mary Beth Ginder, today speaks to GaelicSportsCast about their recent recruiting drive and some of their fine achievements on the field.
