Heading To California This Summer? Become A Member Of The Wild Geese!

It doesn’t seem to matter where in the world you go, you’ll usually find a Paddy in a GAA jersey somewhere close by. Superbowl’s, US Masters, State of Origin matches – there is always one! Always.

We all know that Gaelic Games are an institution as Irish as your Mammy telling you to wrap up war in winter. Thankfully, for those of you heading to Cali this summer, there is a way to bring that little bit of Irish pride away with you and it doesn’t involve wearing a geansaĆ­ in 30 degree heat.

Meet the Orange County Wild Geese! Based in Huntington Beach, the Geese are looking to add more to their flock this summer and it looks like it’d be serious craic to get involved…

Whether you’re going on a J1 or a Grad Visa program, one of the best ways to meet new people is to join a sports club. It provides an immediate sense of belonging and togetherness when you’re a long way from home.

For anyone who is a GAA nut, like our J1 mate Tadgh, we’d absolutely encourage you to head down to training when you got over there this summer. You won’t regret it.

Thanks to US Grad Visa participant, Aoife Byrne for alerting us to her awesome flock living it up in the California sunshine.
