Last Saturday in Maastricht, Holland, was very much a case of champions day as the reigning title holders in men’s and ladies football once more took the spoils in this year’s Europe GAA Football Finals.
In the premier competition played on a state-of-the-art all weather surface facility in Maastricht, the third and final round of the men’s championship saw leaders Den Hague prove too strong once again when overcoming their great rivals Paris Gaels A by five points in the final. The win is an historic one in that Den Hague becomes the first men’s football team to retain their title since the European GAA was set up some 10 years ago.
In the ladies championship, the 7th and final round saw Belgium A continue their dominance in Europe with an emphatic 3-13 (22) to 0-02 win over Paris Gaels A. However, it was a much closer affair in the Mens Shield competition as four teams vied for top honours. Frankfurt led second place Copenhagen by four points leading into last Saturday’s competition. It took a semi final clash between these two to decide the competition and it was last year’s winners, Copenhagen who did the business once more with a three point victory. Though Amsterdam beat Copenhagen in the final – their first tournament win in four years – Copenhagen’s season record over nearest rivals Frankfurt was good enough to see them take the trophy. Here to tell us all about the championship round is Asst. European GAA Secretary, Mike Cryan and Paris Gaels full forward, Darren Lovely.
