October Update - Coaching, Competitive Action & More!   11/10/2014

This weekend we see competitive action take place in KL in Malaysia at the Fexco Asian Gaelic Games with up to 48 teams, mainly from Asian GAA clubs lining out this year. Dubai Celts sent their Mens A Team to compete in the Derek Brady Cup. Having reached the final last year before going down to Qatar GAA, they are looking to go one better this year and bring the DB Cup back to the Middle East again having won it twice before in 2010 and 2005. They will also see this as a good test before defending their Sperrin Metal Middle East League title starting in Bahrain on the 24th of October.
Middle East GAA's big coaching weekend is well underway in Abu Dhabi today and continues into tomorrow. Up to forty people will receive official GAA certified coaching qualifications in Foundation and Level 1 Award -  to bring back to their respective clubs around the region. This will enrich coaching and GAA development across all codes in Juveniles/Schools level, Mens and Ladies.   


Minister for the Diaspora, Jimmy Deenihan was a special guest at Abu Dhabi Na Fianna’s GAA training session on Thursday night and was very impressed with the level of enthusiasm and dedication to Gaelic Games that he experienced while on his visit to both Dubai and Abu Dhabi during the week. He will also be in attendance at the Asian Gaelic Games in Kuala Lumpur this weekend.
Meanwhile over 54 teams are heading into their final preparations over the next two weeks for the 1st Round of the Sperrin Metal Middle East League in Bahrain on the 24th October, the biggest GAA event held in Asia this year. This is the largest tournament hosted by the legendary Arabian Celts GAA Club yet and promises to deliver the usual feast of football, hurling, ceol & craic.
