Founded in 2001 by a group of Irish ex-pats in the English Garden, the München Colmcilles are a Gaelic Football and Hurling club. Currently München Colmcilles have a full Mens Adult Gaelic Football team which has participated in the European-League since 2001. Munich were crowned European Champions in October 2004, beating Paris Gaels in the final game of the session in The Hague. Our womens team first emerged in 2002 and participates in the Womens European Football tournaments which run alongside the mens tournaments. A Hurling team was active between 2002 and 2008 – and we are happy to say that Hurling was instated again last season. In 2007 an underage section of Munich Colmcilles was started with kids from 5-12 learning the skills of hurling.
A vital part of the club is the off pitch activities which include social nights, Stammtisch, Strassenfests and the post tournament craic at up to 8 continental European venues over the summer.
