The European Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) (Irish: Cumann Luthchleas Gael na hEorpa) or Gaelic Games Europe is one of the international units of the GAA (outside Ireland), and is responsible for organising Gaelic games in continental Europe. Gaelic Games Europe is also responsible for the European Gaelic football, hurling, camogie and ladies' Gaelic football teams which compete every three years at the GAA World Gaelic Games.

The first evidence of Gaelic games in Europe dates back to a hurling match in 1774 in Belgium, various games were played across the continent after that with their frequency increasing in the late 20th century. While sporadic attempts were made to form clubs and organise competitions, the first four clubs were organised into a ‘County’ Board at a meeting in 1999 organised by Joe McDonagh, the then President of the GAA. Since then, rapid growth has resulted in almost 90 clubs spread across 20 countries, catering for over 4,000 players who play camogie, hurling, men's & ladies football, handball and rounders competitions from Oulu near the Arctic Circle in Finland to Gibraltar beside the Mediterranean and from the tiny Channel Islands to big cities such as Moscow in Russia. The European County Board (ECB) changed its name to Gaelic Games Europe at the Annual Convention in Leuven (Belgium) in November 2016.


Gaelic Games Europe governance structures promote inclusion, democracy and a volunteer culture. Every member is equal and every registered club can influence policies. Any member can submit a motion to their club's annual general meeting suggesting new policies, amendments to an existing policy or propose changes to the playing rules. If approved, the motion is discussed at the Gaelic Games Europe Annual Convention.

Annual Convention

Every club can send between two and four delegates to the Annual Convention which is the main decision making body for Gaelic games in Europe. Five official regions are also entitled to appoint one delegate each. Delegates discuss issues, decide on motions and elect Officers to serve on the Management and European (County) Committees. Motions to change GAA playing (or other governance) rules, if approved, are then submitted to the Annual Congress of the Gaelic Athletic Association, the Ladies' Gaelic Football Association or the Camogie Association which take place every year in Ireland.

European ('county') Committee (EC)

Meets at least four times per year in person and/or by video conference. The EC has responsibility for decision-making, approving regulations and overseeing policy implementation between Annual Conventions. All sub-committees and work groups report to the EC. There are 26 members, 21 are GGE officers (17 elected at Annual Convention; 4 appointed by EC) who have responsibility for specific areas of work and 5 others who represent the clubs in their region.

Members Appointment method
Chair; Vice-Chair; Secretary; Treasurer; Public Relations Officer; Coaching Officer; Development Officer (7) Elected to Management Committee at Annual Convention
GAA Central Council Delegate; Asst.Secretary; Asst.Treasurer; Youth Officer, Language & Culture Officer and 'code' officers (mens football; ladies football; camogie; hurling & handball) (10) Elected at Annual Convention
Referee Administrator; Sponsorship Officer; IT Officer and Health & Well-being Officer (4) Appointed by European Committee at first meeting following Annual Convention
Regional Representatives (5) Elected by clubs in each region (Benelux; Central/East; Iberia; Nordics and North/West)

Management Committee (MC)

This is a sub-committee of the EC and is responsible for managing activities, dealing with correspondence and making decisions between EC meetings or where urgent action is required. MC pays close attention to financial issues, prepares agenda items for EC meetings and may also have additional tasks delegated to it by the EC. It meets at least once a month - mainly by video conference - and has seven members (Chair; Vice-Chair; Secretary; Treasurer; PRO; Development Officer and Coaching Officer) who are elected at Annual Convention and have specific roles and responsibilities.

Competitions Control Committee (CCC)

The Competitions Control Committee (CCC) is responsible for all aspects of running our competitions and games, including planning dates and venues for fixtures, appointing referees, dealing with disciplinary issues and transfers. The CCC is chaired by the Vice-Chair of the MC, the Secretary of the CCC is the Asst. Secretary of the MC. Other members are the 'code' officers (handball, football, hurling, camogie and ladies football) and the Referee's Administrator (only votes on referee appointments).

Hearings Committee

This committee deals with discipline issues when a party does not accept a penalty proposed by the CCC. They request a 'hearing', where the CCC presents their case, the defending party responds, witnesses are heard and then the Hearings Committee makes a decision. The committee has five members who cannot be members of the MC or CCC.

Appeals Committee

If a defending party is not satisfied with a decision of the Hearings Committee, they can submit an appeal to this committee. The Appeals Committee hears from all parties and witnesses as well as considering any other evidence before making a decision which is final. The committee has five members who cannot be members of the MC, CCC or Hearings Committees.

Other Sub-Committees & Work Groups

There are also other sub-committees and work groups which include:

  • Coaching & Games Development Committee
  • Youth Development Committee
  • Public Relations & Marketing Committee
  • Health & Well-being Committee
  • Culture Committee
  • Referees Administration Committee
  • 'code' committees for men's football, ladies football, camogie, hurling and handball.

Members are appointed by the EC and include a Chairperson (GGE Chair's nominee); relevant GGE Officer (who acts as Secretary) and sometimes other GGE officers if their role is relevant to a committee's work. One representative is also appointed by each of the five GGE regions. (GGE Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are 'ex-officio' members of all sub-committees and work groups)

Development Plan - Committees/Groups

The GGE Development Plan 2019-2021 which was endorsed at 2018 Annual Convention requires the establishment of the following;-

  • Steering Committee (Joan O'Flynn- former CEO of the Camogie Association and 5 x Chairpersons of GGE regions)
  • Devolved Governance Transition Group (GGE Chairperson + representatives of regions)
  • Coach Education Workgroup (Coaching Officer + TBC)
  • Referee Education Workgroup (Referee Tutors + TBC)
  • Communications Workgroup (PRO + TBC)
  • Social Media Network (PRO + TBC)
  • Youth Development Network (Childrens/Youth Officers + TBC)
  • Mgt. Ctte. ‘Club Development’ Sub-Group (Club Development Officer + TBC)
  • Mgt. Ctte. ‘Human Resources’ Sub-Group (Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer + GAA HQ official)


Currently, clubs across Europe are assigned to one of five "regions". Clubs in each region elect a "Regional Committee" which is responsible for organising competitions and developing Gaelic games in their own region. The Management Committee (MC) may also delegate other tasks and each Region appoints a representative to the EC and many of the sub-committees. Currently there are five Regions, two of which are divided into "sub-regions":

Benelux Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany (western lander)
Central-East Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany (eastern & southern lander), Hungary, Italy, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland
Nordic Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Russia, Sweden
Iberia Andalucía Gibraltar, Andalusia
Galicia Galicia
Central Portugal, rest of Spain
North-West Bretagne Brittany
Federal Channel Islands, rest of France

Competition formats

In GAA terms 'Europe' comprises all of continental Europe (excluding Ireland & Great Britain) with great distances between each team, so Gaelic Games Europe has various competition formats.

Since 2006, men's and ladies football competitions have been played on a regional basis. Europe is divided into five regions: Benelux, East and Central, Iberia, North West and Nordic. Each team plays in its regional competition with the top teams qualifying for highest grades at the European Football Championships. Some regions also have sub-regional structures with their own local competitions (Brittany, Galicia, Andalusia).

Many of the regional competitions use a system of 'rounds' played as one-day tournaments spread over a number of months. Each tournament is competed in a single day with teams playing in groups before moving to knock-out stages (or in a round-robin format) leading to a final. Semi-finals and other ranking games can be played if needed to determine the rankings of every team present on the day. Each team gains a number of points depending on its ranking at each tournament (25 points for the winner, 20 points for the runner-up, etc.). After each tournament, a team's ranking points are added to those accrued in previous rounds and after the final round the overall rankings determine the competition winner for that season. 3-4 rounds are the norm in each regional football championship.

All men's (11-a-side) and ladies (9-a-side) teams can play in the European Football Championships held as a one-day event in October with teams seeded into different grades (Senior, Intermediate and Junior). Teams play 3-4 group games within their grade before progressing to the semi-finals of either a Championship, Shield & Plate competition.

The 'Premier' championships are for 15-a-side teams in men's and ladies' football and are organised on a 'knock-out' basis - as is usual in GAA championships with 60 minute games - and played over a number of weekends in Maastricht, where there is a full-GAA size astroturf pitch. Both winners progress to represent Europe in the All Ireland Club Championships.

The European camogie and hurling championships are played by teams (9-a-side) from across Europe who compete together over five 'rounds' in various cities between May and October annually.

Other matches such as internationals (which have featured France, Italy, Germany, Galicia and Brittany) are also played, along with national 'Cup' competitions confined to teams in a single country e.g. Finland, Germany.

Every three years, a variety of camogie, hurling and ladies/men's football teams from Europe compete in the GAA World Games in both Irish-born and Non-Irish categories.
