Chairpersons Welcome

Dia dhaoibh,

Welcome one and all to our new website.  I hope you find it informative and user-friendly.  On 3rd October 2019, we kicked off our new season with a tournament in Dubai incorporating 103 teams (1,236 players), across hurling, camogie men’s/ladies football. Throughout the upcoming season, we will have competitions across all grades (senior, intermediate and junior).  Our 2019/20 leagues will evolve over 11 separate tournaments.  Our season will culminate with a championship weekend in Abu Dhabi from 12-13 March 2020.  Juvenile tournaments will be run in tandem with the aforementioned tournaments.

We have implemented a new Purpose Statement and Values for our organisation.  Our new statement is “Enriching the Middle East Community by Promoting and Developing GAA”.  Our key values are Inclusive, Welcoming, Empowering. We will bring these values to life through continued demonstrations of appropriate behaviours.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our players (Irish, non-Irish, juveniles) from across our 15 clubs and six countries, the very best of luck in the season ahead.

Ar aghaidh linn le chéile.
