A FOURTH Gaelic football team is set to join the Andalucian arena.
With the popularity of the Irish sport booming on the coast and inland, Celta Malaga has been born.
Training at Torremolinos Polydeportivo from 8.30pm every Wednesday, club founder Liam Riordan is urging anyone interested to get involved.
“We are excited to be bringing Europe’s fastest growing field sport to Malaga,” Riordan told the Olive Press. “We will be joining the three existing teams in Andalucia for the local league and 30 plus teams in Spain for the national championship.
“Come on down, get some exercise, meet new people and have a drink after.”
Meanwhile training has commenced for the Costa Gaels, Gibraltar Gaels and Eire Og Seville, with opening fixtures being played in October.
The first game sees the Costa Gaels – sponsored by Estepona Irish bar and restaurant Healy Macs – go head to head with Gibraltar on October 1.
