Saturday, May 21st will go down in the history-books of the Prague Hibernians, as both the ladies and men’s teams won their respective tournaments in Vienna.
Played in ferociously warm conditions, both Prague and Vienna Gaels did battle twice on the day in the ladies tournament, with some extremely tense and close encounters taking place. In the men’s tournament, Prague Hibs, Vienna and newly-formed Slovak Shamrocks were involved on the day.
In the ladies tournament, the Prague Hibettes struggled to field a team, and enlisted the help of a Slovak Shamrocks in their quest to bring the title home, and thankfully it worked a treat. Both games went down to the wire, with Prague Hibettes snatching both victories by the skin of their teeth.
In the men’s tournament, Prague beat both Vienna Gaels and Slovak Shamrocks to book their place in the final, where they beat Vienna again comfortably. The tournament was played in 26 degree heat, with all teams struggling to adapt to the conditions on the day.
Conor Fitzgerald took home the honours of the player of the tournament for the Prague Hibernians after what can only be described as a legendary performance, and a departing gift for the Prague Hibernians prior to his return home to Boston the following day.
The afterparty saw all teams descend to Flanagan’s Irish bar in Vienna for a well-deserved break from the football! Well done and congratulations to all involved.
