Bahrain Rugby Club hosts the Arabian Celts GAA club in order to symbiotically develop Gaelic sports in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Gaelic Football attracts large numbers in both the women’s section and men’s section, both sections train 3 times a week on Sunday and Tuesday evenings and Friday afternoon. This section is always growing with several people intrigued by what for most is a new sport to them.
From its humble beginning over 25 years ago, the Bahrain Irish Festival has grown from just a handful of teams to being the largest gathering of Gaelic Sports teams in the Gulf region. The Arabian Celts always manage to field at least 2 teams in both the men’s and women’s sections of our own tournament. As well as the home tournament, The Arabian Celts send teams all over the Gulf region to various tournaments.
As with many of our sections, the Gaelic sections have a very experienced coaching team who lead their respective squads very well throughout the year.
