About Us

Known as the EC GAELIC CLUB / BRUSSELS, the club has been in existence since about 1980. It started out as primarily a men's senior club but has evolved over the years into a club specialising in GAA Football training for young boys and girls who live in and around Brussels. Since 2022 we have added Hurling training into the mix. All nationalities are welcome for both Hurling and Football training!

We are officaily affilliated to the GAA in Ireland.

Our membership is primarily young Irish boys and girls who are currently living in Belgium. We are also delighted to have many other nationalities in our club. We cater for children aged 5 / 6 years old up to mid 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 the Netherlands. In May 2022, our U-15 players won the European Féile title following the first ever Gaelic football tournament for teams of that age group from all across Europe. The tournament was held in Vannes, Brittany. As a result, our Brussels team qualified as Europe's winner to compete in the national Féile na nÓg competition in Ireland in July 2022.

We have sent teams to Féile tournaments in Dublin, Galway, Tipperary, Carlow, Limerick, and on many occasions have hosted visiting teams from the host clubs in these counties.

Our U-15 team will travel to Frankfurt in March 2023 to defend their European Féile title.
