Prague Hibernians

Gaelic Football Club. Est. 2009

In May 2009 a group of Irish lads got to talking about Gaelic Football over a quiet pint and this is when the idea of forming a G.A.A. Club in Prague began to take shape. The following week, the first training session of the Prague Hibernians G.A.A. Club took place with five people in attendance. Now we have a squad of approx. 35 players; the majority from Ireland with a few French, Czech, American and English.

 

The team name Hibernians was chosen as it connects the the past links between Ireland and Prague, drawing inspiration from a group of Irish Franciscans who established their college in Prague in 1629 and stayed here for 150 years till 1786. They were called in Czech "Hyberni" - in English Hibernians - derived from the Latin form of their homeland Hibernia or Ireland.

 

This link, and memory of the college, is still recalled today by the usage of the street name Hybernska. We hope this will be another long chapter in Irish-Czech history.

 

Thanks for your support!
