The Old Mill Inn in Holbury.Near the new forest. (www.theoldmillinn.org) I watched some matches in it last year. Might be worth phoning ahead to to make sure.

There is currently no Gaelic club in Southampton which is disappointing. Though there is an Aussie Rules club (Southampton Titans)/league in the south of England which is very well run. There are currently seven Irish players on the squad and some of a very high standard. It's a great way to meet new people English/Irish/Aussies etc. Please check the Southampton Titans Facebook page for more information and please do not hesitate to get in touch everyone of all abilities are welcome.

So there's an Aussie Rules team (as i pointed out before) with 7 Irish players there already? Sounds like there is a GAA club there ready to be formed/reformed lads! Get on it and good luck, keep us posted on here though!

Hi All

We have had very little luck in setting up a GAA squad as most of the boys are students and go home/travelling in the summer.
So we have thrown our lot in with the Southampton Titans Aussie Rules team.

If anyone else wants a to keep the skills alive and keep fit you can find the team on facebook.

Take care

Sad to hear that you won't be fielding a GAA team, you should look at joining the Gloucester league, a mate of mine is on the board there and i remember him saying that they allow league games to be played with 11 players but you'd need 15 for the champo. They only have 4 teams so the number of games wouldn't be a killer either i'm sure.

Good luck with the Aussie Rules anyhow.

Hi guys, we are setting up a Dorset GAA club based in Bournemouth.

We are looking for anybody who wants to give the game ago. It would be great to get a mens & Ladies team up and running. The first session is this Sunday 10th March at 11.00am. We have the development officer from the county coming down to take the session so come down and take part. The session will take place at Queens Park Golf Course, Queens Park West Drive, Bournemouth BH8 9bY. Its close to Fitness First. Everybody welcome so spread the word and bring a friend!!
