Who plays Gaelic football in Tasmania?
  • people who enjoy a run around on a weekday or weekend , a bit of fun and an opportunity to socialise.
  • Irish people who have emigrated to Australia and have played the sport at home
  • soccer, AFL, hockey and rugby players looking for an off-season sport to sharpen their skills.
