Ten teams from different companies around Cayman took part in the Digicel Mixed 9s Gaelic Football Tournament at Camana Bay’s CIS Pitch, organised by the Cayman Islands Gaelic Football Club (CIGFC)

It was a fun day out for everyone, with plenty of food and drink available and even a bouncy castle so that the kids could enjoy themselves too.

Overall winners in Group one were “The 99%,” who scored 13 points against Deutsche Bank’s 7 points.

 

Teams and captains were:

Digicel: Rob Moorhead

The 99%: Dave O Driscoll

E&Y: Dave O’Connell

Kane: Shane Delaney

Tommy’s All Stars: Lisa Kehoe

UBS Kickhams: Paul Broderick

PWC: Sherri Francis

The CIGFC brings expats from all countries together with Caymanians to play Gaelic football, with talent from Cayman, Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, UK and of course Ireland, to name just a few countries.

The first game of Gaelic Football played in Cayman was back in 1987, but The club was officially being formed in 1999, holding an initial membership of just 30 players, with the aim of enabling Irish ex-pats to continue to play Gaelic football whilst they were away from home.

There is a bi-weekly Ladies and Men’s League now, which runs from January to June each year, with membership growing every year.
