For the third year running, we are proud to be sponsoring this year's Gaelic football final winners - RAK Ropairí in Dubai. The Gaelic Football club competed in the first tournament of the Middle East League this October and for the first time in the club’s history had both a men's and ladies team compete.
The junior ladies team, whom we have supported for three years now, triumphed in the final and the new junior men's team had an excellent first run this year, reaching the semi-final stage.
Rak Ropairí Secretary, Kylie Masur commented: ‘The junior lads played awesome and narrowly missed out on the cup final after losing to Abu Dhabi in the cup semi-final. Our junior ladies had a convincing win against Ruwais taking the plate final! Our two social teams showed some impressive skill and determination in their first tournaments, most of them playing in their first GAA tournament ever.'
We are very proud to be affirming our celtic roots and encouraging cultural integration by supporting RAK Ropairí . It is our honour to support this club and we hope to continue to raise the profile of this popular sporting culture for Irish expats, nationals and other nationalities living and working in the UAE.
We would like to congratulate all the players on their success and look forward to supporting them in another successful year of competition.
