Welcome to the EC Gaelic Club
Known as the EC GAELIC CLUB / BRUSSELS, we train primarily young Irish boys & girls who have grown up either in Ireland or in Belgium, but we have many other nationalities also. We cater for 5 / 6 years old up to late teens.
Over the years, we have trained teams who have represented Brussels, primarily at FEILE PEIL na nÓG, but have also played at locations in France, Spain, Luxembourg, and Netherlands.
We look forward to seeing you at the training. Next training dates: Sunday 26 May, Sunday 2 June
