2011 Kepplers Australasian Gaelic Games

The 2011 Kepplers Australasian Gaelic Games will be held in Brisbane at Gaelic Park, Bowhill Road, Willawong from Sunday 2 October through to the finals on Saturday 8 October (Minor Football & Camogie Finals will be played on 7 October).

This year there there are many firsts. The Championships have a naming rights sponsor in Kepplers Cider. Kepplers is a Cork based cider brand which is marketed in Australasia through Heron Tower Beverages in Melbourne. Camogie will be part of the games for the first time with teams from WA, Victoria, NSW and Queensland. A number of games are also set down to be played under lights including the Camogie final.

There are 20 teams competing with five men's, four women's and three minor in football plus four hurling and four camogie. A total of 48 games will be staged over the seven days making the 2011 Championships one of the biggest ever held. The number would have been a record if the rugby World Cup wasn't being staged at the same time as this has seen the Auckland and Wellington teams unable to travel. Close to 500 players will take part.

In hurling there is an extra incentive to participate. The "All Star" team which will comprise the best 25 players from the Championships will be invited to play against a touring Irish Hurling Club. The match will be the curtain raiser to the International Rules game at Etihad Stadium on Friday 28 October..

At the conclusion of the games a Presentation Function will be held at the Gabba with in excess of 600 people attending. Joe McDonagh, ex President of the GAA in Ireland and current Chairman of the GAA Overseas Committee will be one of the guests of honour as will representatives from O'Neills and Kepplers. During the evening, awards will be made to the best player in each of the five codes as well as the announcement of the five "All Star" Teams. Each player selected will be presented with a commemorative medal. [Source: Gaelic Football & Hurling Association of Australiasia]
