San Antonio Gaelic Athletic Club

San Antonio Gaelic Athletic Club were founded in 2011 with a mission to spread the Irish culture in Texas through the playing of Gaelic Games. During its inaugural year the club grew in both skills and numbers. With a dedicated Board of Directors and a goal for sharing the Irish culture with South Texas, the future is bright for San Antonio’s “San Patricios” Gaelic Athletic Club. In September 2012, San Antonio traveled to Philadelphia for the National Championships and came away with the Divisional Shield Championships. A stunning achievement for a Nationals debutant, San Antonio defied the odds to win through in Sunday’s final and take home its first ever piece of silverware.

Les Irlandais et la France

wild geese and ambassador

The French Ambassador to Ireland, Emmanuelle d’Achon, accepting a bottle of Wild Geese whiskey from the Deputy Mayor of Castlebar, Ger Deere together with local writer and historian, Steve Dunford.

We’re proud to support the on-going Irish-Franco relationship, which is also commemorated in the exhibition ‘The Irish in France: Three Centuries of Military History’, which features material on The Wild Geese who served their adopted country in extraordinary ways.

The exhibition is presented by the French Embassy in Ireland and the National Museum of Ireland, produced originally by the Musée de l’Armée in Paris.

For hundreds of years, Irish soldiers have sought their destiny abroad. Wherever they travelled, whichever side of the battlefield they have stood, the tales of their exploits have never been forgotten.

Take a look at our own video which charts this on-going relationship, from the arrival of The Wild Geese in France up to the modern day.
