Prague Hibernians Gaelic Football Club


Prague Hibernians Gaelic Football Club was founded in May 2009, and from small beginnings, it now has a sizeable squad of male and female players, from Ireland, The Czech Republic, and Internationally. The name Hibernians was chosen as it connects the past links between Ireland and Prague, drawing inspiration from a group of Irish Franciscans who established their college in Prague in 1629 and stayed here for 150 years till 1786. They were called in Czech “Hyberni” – in English Hibernians – derived from the Latin form of their homeland Hibernia or Ireland.
