The International UCD Ladies GAA team in Shanghai

Red Torch Ginger congratulates UCD International Ladies’ GAA Team

November 13, 2015

We would like to congratulate the UCD International Ladies’ GAA Team on their fantastic performance during the 20th edition of the Fexco Asian Gaelic Games in Shanghai, China. The competition was fierce, with GAA becoming increasingly popular amongst women in China according to the Asian County Board.

The team, which featured players from six countries including China, Poland, Nigeria, America, the Philippines and England, played brilliantly, making it all the way to the Intermediate Ladies Cup final where they narrowly lost to Japan.

We would like to especially congratulate team member Doris Obiacor for being one of the winners of the 2015 First Derivatives plc Ladies All Star Award.
