The Gaelic Sports Club Luxembourg are very pleased to announce that we will be setting up ‘Club na nÓg Luxembourg’ (Gaelic Games for Children) with the aim of bringing Gaelic Games to kids in Luxembourg again in a fun and friendly way.
Our first mission as Club na nÓg Lux will be to provide 10 weeks of fun training for 4-14 year olds for one hour on Sunday afternoons starting the week following the Luxembourg Hurling and Camogie Tournament.
Dates: April 24– July 3, 2016
Time: 14.00– 15.00
Location: Stade Michel Wagner, Weimerskirch (Directions)
The pitch can be reached by Bus Ligne 8 (Stop: St. Vith)
Age Group: 4-14 years old (split into age appropriate groupings)
Please let any parents who might be interested in having their children learn basic Gaelic Football and Hurling/Camogie skills know about this.
We would ask that parents remain at the pitch for the duration of the training session. There will be teas/coffees available for parents in the clubhouse while they wait for the children.
If you are interested in having your child or your children attend all or some of the sessions please register here.
In addition, the training team would appreciate hearing from any parents who are willing to assist with helping out at each training session. Obviously the more volunteers the more enjoyable the training for the children. You can also register your willingness to give a hand at the same link as above or by emailing us.
It would be great if you can please dress the children in comfortable sports clothing and apply sun cream when required.
Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions in the meantime. Email us at kids@ClubnanOg.lu.

Luxembourg’s gaelic sportsmen and women made a titanic effort when their club hosted a Hurling and Camogie tournament last weekend, with both the men and women’s teams finishing third.
The Gaelic sports club welcomed teams from across northern Europe when it hosted round 1 of the European Hurling and Camogie Championships at Jos Becker stadium on Saturday.
Luxembourg’s men started well with a comfortable win over Darmstadt (Luxembourg 8-18 to Darmstadt 0-00) but fell short against a stronger Belgium A team (Luxembourg 1-6 Belgium 3-15) , who ultimately won the tournament.
Luxembourg’s men put in a titanic effort in what was a gripping semi final against Amsterdam, but came up short (Luxembour 4-11 Amsterdam 6-8). They finally found a comfortable win in the third/fourth place playoff against Belgium B (Luxembourg 6-11 Belgium B 1-0), finishing the day on a high note.
Belgium A team came out overall winners in the Hurling, beating Amsterdam in the final (Belgium A 4-22 to Amsterdam 1-6).

Luxembourg’s Camogie team, dubbed “The Luxembirds”, did extremely well considering the newness and lack of experience of the team.
After a loss against Holland (Luxembourg 0-1 Holland 5-6) and then Belgium A (Luxembourg 0-0 Belgium A 2-7), theys came together for an excellent display of team work in the final, the third/fourth place playoff against Belgium B (Luxembourg 2-2 Belgium B 5-1 ), which they won. Holland seized the title for Camogie.
Players of the tournament were awarded to Belgian players Maedhbh Bolger for Camogie, and Brendan O’Donoghue in Hurling.
