The GSCL attended the European Hurling and Camogie Championship finals held in Thurles, Co. Tipperary on July 14th. This was the first occasion that the finals were held off the continent. It was a very successful tournament for both teams each reaching a final place of 4th, but with some tasty wins throughout the day, 2013 will be a year to look forward to. Great support from family and friends was much appreciated by the players – who gave a great account of themselves on front of representatives from Cumann Luthchleas Gael, and also the President of the Cumann Camogaiochta, Aileen Lawlor. On Saturday night – Paris Gaels were crowned Camogie Champions for 2012, and Den Haag GAA were presented their winners trophy with a clean sweep of 4/4 hurling tournaments this year. However, for those hurling and camogie lovers amongst you, fear not, there will be one last hurrah in the form of the Maastricht 7’s Camogie and Hurling which the GSCL hopes to field in both codes on August 11th, then we’ll really have to put away the sticks for 2012….
