Double delight as Belgium GAA are crowned European Hurling and Camogie Champions

A dramatic day ended with the hurlers taking the European crown in the dying minutes in a tight final against The Hague, winning by just one point. The final whistle marked a unique double for the club on the Hurling/Camogie front as the ladies also took their championship on the final day despite a narrow loss to Holland in the final.

An incredible amount of work and effort has gone into sustaining and developing hurling and camogie in Belgium GAA and the results today speak volumes of the efforts of code officers, trainers and of course players who racked up visits to Paris, Luxembourg and Zurich on their road to victory.

 

Congratulations to all involved. More in depth reports and pictures will follow in the Belgium GAA Newsletter in September.
