Ger­man Am­bas­sador to visit Comór­tas Peile Páidi Ó Sé

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

THERE is a dis­tinctly over­seas feel to Comór­tas 2018 with a record eight clubs com­ing from the UK (four from the Greater Lon­don area and one from Liver­pool), South Korea and Ger­many. Team Ger­many is made up of six GAA clubs spread across the coun­try and they will have a ladies and men’s squad lin­ing out in the ju­nior com­pe­ti­tions.

The Ger­man Am­bas­sador to Ire­land Dr. Di­etse Potzel, who was only ap­pointed to the post in De­cem­ber 2017, will visit the Ger­man teams on Satur­day, 17 th De­cem­ber, vis­it­ing the men’s team when they play But­te­vant in Blen­nerville at 11.30am on Satur­day, 17 th Fe­bru­ary and also when the ladies play on the same day in Fossa against Cork’s Fun­cheon Gaels at 12.30pm.

For­mer Kerry foot­baller and Cro­mane na­tive Sean ‘Bán’ O’Sul­li­van will take the man­age­rial reigns of Asian Gaels, who are made up of 13 Ir­ish men liv­ing and work­ing in South Korea and who have some Cro­mane play­ers among their ranks. They will line out in the Ju­nior man’s com­pe­ti­tion, kick­ing off against Lyre of Ban­teer in Cork at 12.30pm in a Tralee venue to be an­nounced.

Gaelic clubs in the UK are well rep­re­sented with Glen Rovers of Wat­ford, Round Tow­ers of Lon­don and Liver­pu­dian’s John Mitchel’s com­pet­ing in the ju­nior ladies com­pe­ti­tion, and Éire Óg and Round Tow­ers of Lon­don in the ju­nior men’s com­pe­ti­tion.
