The Vienna Gaels’ 2016 season will conclude with a bang with the Charlie P’s GAA Champions League on 24 and 31 October.
Over 40 players will take part in a four-team mixed (non-contact) friendly competition, which will see each team face each other twice in 10-minute matches.
The teams have been evenly matched, thanks to the efforts of Simon Deignan, and we can look forward to two evenings of fantastic competition – under the watchful eye of referee Cian Scollard.
