Kuala Lumpur hosting ‘milestone’ Asian youth GAA event

Kuala Lumpur will host an historic GAA event this weekend when the Asian Youth Championships will be played, writes Jerome Quinn.

Teams are travelling today from the likes of South Korea and Shanghai to compete with local Malaysian club Orang Eire and others.

“This is a milestone event that we’ve been building towards for the last six/seven years,” says Asian County Board Chairperson Joe Trolan.

There have been youth exhibition games previously at the adult Asian Gaelic Games, but this is a stand-alone youth event and the children are loving the chance to play Gaelic Football.
