A native of Limerick, I have been involved with the Shamrocks since moving to Moscow in October 2018. Although hurling is my first sport, I'm enjoying life with the big ball at the Shamrocks. The highlight so far has been travelling with the club to play in tournaments in Voronezh, Prague, Vienna and Ulyanovsk. It's great to see Irish sports thriving across the continent!

I'm an international teacher who has lived in Tanzania and Egypt, prior to Moscow. I'm a Cork man who moved here in 2016 and the Shamrocks played a big role in helping me find my feet. I'm a science teacher and although I'm from a hurling background I've thrown my hand at football.

Originally from the city of Ulyanovsk (motherland of Lenin), I've been living in Moscow for 8 years, 3 of which I have been playing Gaelic football. It's the one and only team sport I enjoy, it was difficult at first but seeing my progress each week, the support of my teammates and the thrill of games or tournaments makes it all worth it. It's something you don't know you're missing until you try it and can't let go!

Hey everyone! I am from Moscow. This is my second season with the Shamrocks. In the past I played soccer, so Gaelic football seemed very interesting for me to try. And I wasn't disappointed. 

Moscow Shamrocks  helped me to discover this old traditional Irish game and Irish mentality in general. With the Shamrocks I travelled to Ulyanovsk where we played Simbirsk Celts. That was great fun!  Hopefully soon international tournaments will be again available for us.  I am happy to be a part of the club.

It’s a long way from Clare to Moscow but I made the move in 2019. Since then, a regular highlight of my week has been training with the Shamrocks where every session offers you a warm welcome, a decent challenge and an opportunity to meet great people. I look forward to helping the club grow and develop to in the year ahead. Shamrocks abú!
