Christmas in Australia: Kids GAA Melbourne

Australia - Melbourne

Kids GAA Melbourne has been running for five years now. Normally the Christmas period would see many of the families involved head back to Ireland to visit relatives, or host visitors here for the Australian summer.

As part of the To Be Irish initiative, they’ve put together interviews with some of the coaches about what it means to be Irish at Christmas in Australia this year, alongside some footage of their young hurlers and footballers in action at training this December.
