About Us

Welcome to the website of Madrid Harps GAC, the Spanish capital’s only sports club dedicated to the traditional Irish field games of Gaelic Football and Hurling.

Founded in late 2003, we have grown steadily since that time, and currently have over 150 active members, both male and female, hailing from Spain, Ireland and beyond.

Our aim is the promotion of these ancient Gaelic games amongst all the inhabitants of Madrid, both as a form of physical exercise and as a cultural meeting point.

We train regularly throughout the year and also play challenge matches against invited teams, in preparation for the serious business of the Iberian and European Championships, played between February and October each year.

We also get together on a regular basis throughout the year for social events: dinners, nights out, quizzes, and other cultural events.
