By Colm Egan
In a challenging time, I am happy to be able to connect with you and detail some of the activities that we are working on at Chicago Gaelic Games Development.
Chicago Gaelic Games officer Colm Egan is producing some activities that you can complete at home to both learn new Gaelic Games skills and to sharpen your existing skills.
For our younger players this is a great opportunity to take your time and learn the correct form for each skill and then progress to a little speed and more challenging aspects of our games.
To our established players I hope that you will maintain your skills and use your imagination to test yourselves.
You can increase your speed; you can set up stations for different skills and you can use your surroundings to challenge your Gaelic games activities.
This is also a perfect time to try a new Sport in a relaxed environment at home.
If you are predominantly a Gaelic Football player for the most part this is a great time to try Hurling.
If you need equipment don’t be afraid to use soccer balls, tennis balls etc. and if you need a Hurley, I suggest contacting Colm to help direct you. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Now is a great time to encourage your friends, school mates, cousins to try Gaelic Sports in the relaxed environment of your back yard.
Colm encourages Mom and Dad to join and all concerned can learn together.
The demonstration skills are distributed on Facebook @ Chicago GAA Coaching & Games page and can also be found at this link - see video here!

The GAA Launches New Digital Archive
A wonderful connection to Gaelic Sports and to Gaelic contests gone by is a digital archive of All Ireland finals from as far back as 1961.
This is a one stop shop for over 100 finals in both Hurling and football.

“The GAA, in conjunction with the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, launched the GAA Digital Archive at Croke Park providing free access to past GAA matches to internet users around the world.

113 All-Ireland finals since 1961 are included in the archive and provincial finals from 1961 also feature. The new archive also includes All-Ireland club finals since 1989
“This is a fantastic initiative and one that safeguards so much of our history, not just for those who might have been fortunate to see the games the first time around, but for future generations too,” said GAA President John Horan..

In all, over 500 football and hurling matches were retrieved from broadcasters and information such as date, result, venue, referee, scorers and teams and substitutions was added.”

For all Gaelic Games fans there is a constant updating of content on the Home site of the GAA with some epic games getting a full replay for the interested fans.
