Gaelic games have undergone a revival in recent years in Buenos Aires, with the support of the GAA and thanks to the dedicated efforts of enthusiasts at Hurling Club in Buenos Aires.
The gaelic football team representing Argentina were victorious in the Men’s Shield competition at the 2015 World GAA Games held in Abu Dhabi in March 2015. This was an incredible achievement for a team made up mostly of Argentine-born players who had only recently taken up the sport.
