Great in defence!


THE ongoing political dispute between Gibraltar and Spain led to a Gaelic football tournament taking place in the most unlikely of venues – on a Ministry of Defence pitch!

The local Gibraltar GAA club usually play their matches on pitches across the border in Spain.

But because of the delays caused by the introduction of border checks, however, they decided to hold the tournament on ‘home’ soil provided by the MOD.

The competition involved Sevilla, Gibraltar and Marbella, who play independently in an Andalucian league, but band together to field a team in the Iberian league.

  1. Great news for Gibraltar that has a positive ‘it can be done attitude’ compared with those responsible for allowing 27% of their population to remain unemployed.
