Gaelic – The Saigon Gaels (Women)

Younger (but higher achieving) sister of the Men’s team, the Ladies Saigon Gaels were formed in 2013. The team was spearheaded by Siobhan Synott (incredibly, one of only a handful of Irish girls to play for the team), and multitasking Laura from Australia.

Since then the ladies team have had up to 40 players join and took their first win in a friendly match against the Hanoi team Viet-Celts- although some may say there was nothing friendly about it.

Since then, the Gaels have gone from strength to strength, taken under the wing of the Vietnam Swans AFL team and led by Cormac Hamill and mairead Scanlon – they have encouraged sporting ladies from all over the world to take up the sport; something they have done with complete aplomb.

While the girls focus is set on representing Saigon in the South East Asian Gaelic Games; they are always on the look out for new players to join in on the fun.

It doesn’t matter if you have never heard of Gaelic Football before let alone know how to play it! If you want a run about and a good laugh, Gaelic could be the sport for you!

The ladies Gaels can be found on Facebook.
