Paris Gaels GAA vs Dowdallshill GAA – Throw in Sarturday 13th March at 10.a.m.

The Paris Gaels Ladies Gaelic Football team are kicking off their season with a friendly match on March 13th at 10am at the ASPTT Grounds in Pantin against visiting team Dowdallshill GAA from Co. Louth, Ireland.
The Paris Gaels Ladies team (pictured below), European Championship winners in 2007 and Runners Up in the competition for the last two years are looking to brush away those cobwebs and start their season on a high note. Anne-Marie Butler (Paris Gaels Ladies Gaelic Football Officer) and the Ladies Management Team have been working hard during the off season to recruit new players. Thanks to their efforts a full squad of Paris Gaels players of different nationalities including French, English, Irish, Russian, Swedish and Canadian will tog out on the day and for some, it will be their first “competitive” Ladies Gaelic Football match.

The Dowdallshill Ladies team (pictured below) are current junior champions. They made it 5 times to the final and this is the first that they have won. As a reward for doing so well last season the management team promised a pre season trip to Paris thanks to their country cousin connection with Ciaran McGuill (Paris Gaels Treasurer).

Dowdallshill have a squad of around 18-20 players and their team age ranges from 15-30. The girls are based around the town of Dundalk although they have a few students from surrounding counties playing for them. Three of their players last year played in the Louth senior or minor team. They will have a major challenge this year of trying to impress in the Ladies Intermediate League.

Local referee Michael Cryan will be in the heat of the action to keep order between the two teams in what promises to be an exciting and face paced match. The friendly match will be followed by a Gaelic Football Initiation session for ladies and men. All are welcome to come along and take part and discover this rapidly growing sport in France. All the days’ participants are invited to the “Pot de Terre” restaurant in the 5th for the post match dinner that night with the travelling team. It promises to be a great weekend of fun for all.
