#5 Fresh off the plane and couldn’t wait to start -Taiwan Celts GAA

Taiwan Ladies GAA celebrating after a match

Taiwan Ladies GAA celebrating after a match

Back in 1995, a hardy bunch of Irish immigrants …fresh off the plane…and led by the late Derek Brady from Kells in Meath, decided that it was high-time their new found home in Taiwan should have a Gaelic Football team.
Recounting those early days is Tipp native and club member Tony Lonergan, who explained to GaelicSportsCast  about the role the club played in getting the first Asian Gaelic Games off the ground at Manila in 1996.

GaelicSportsCast today visits the exotic and beautiful country of Thailand to talk with Thai GAA Chairperson Derryman, John Campbell. Like other GAA clubs in Asia, this newly formed club at times finds it difficult to keep numbers steady in an often transient migrant environment. However, the club has been greatly boosted recently by its successful hosting of the 14th Asian Gaelic Games in October, an event which opened the eyes of the club’s international players to the sincerity and sheer passion of Ireland’s favourite sporting pastimes.
