OUR 2019-20 COMMITTEE
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.
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 and Vienna. It's great to see Irish sports thriving across the continent!
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!
Hello, I'm beginning my fourth year of teaching in Moscow and playing Gaelic for just over a year. It's been so rewarding to learn a new skill, make new friends and even to play competitively in tournaments! The Shamrocks are some of the best people I've met, even when training is tough we always find something to laugh about.
Sports and Gaelic has always been a big part of my life, I joined the club in Spring 2015 when I returned to Moscow. I was the Coaching Officer from 2015-17 and Chairperson 2017-19. Outside of training, I am the Director of the Russian State Social University and work as a Sports Journalist for Capital FM!
Hi, I've been playing Gaelic with the Moscow Shamrocks for the last three years. I enjoy training every week with a great bunch of people, learning new skills and improving (even if it feels slowly sometimes!) My highlight so far has been playing in the Prague tournament and putting my skills to the test!
