HistoryEdit

Hurling, football and camogie have been played by the Irish community in Luxembourg since the accession of Ireland to the European Economic Community in the early 1970s.[2] The club was formally established in 1978.[3] It is registered as an Association sans but lucratif with the Luxembourbourgish authorities.

The club became a founding member of the European County Board of the GAA in 1999 and has participated in European competitions ever since.

The club has won four Women's football Championships, two Camogie Championships, one Gaelic Football Championship and one Hurling Championship.
