Blarney Bulletin "Welcome to the July/August edition of the Blarney Bulletin - the voice of the online Australian Celtic community.

This edition boasts a number of exciting scoops that you will only find in your Bulletin - like the picture of George W Bush that he ordered banned in Ireland; then Jarlath Byrne lifts the lid on the unseasonal and previously unreported flash flood that simultaneously swept across Ireland and Scotland in June; and there's an exclusive MP3 sample of Shane Howard's yet to be released CD, Another Country.
Gaelic Football & Hurling Association of Australasia Gaelic Football - "the all-round game" of hand, foot and round ball skills - has been played across Australia and NZ for several decades by Irish immigrants, visa workers and backpackers keen to play the national sport of their youth. In Sydney and Melbourne the ancient game of Hurling also is played. These days Gaelic football is played by women, men, boys and girls of all backgrounds across all states of Australia (Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane) and in Auckland and Wellington in New Zealand. Partly this is a result of fewer Irish immigrants since the Irish economic boom of the 1990s but primarily it reflects the enthusiasm of Aussies and Kiwis finding the excitement and joy of the world's best all-round game.
Penrith Gaels Cultural & Sporting Association Penrith Gaels had its humble beginnings in the early 70’s with the formation of a gaelic football team. A few dedicated people decided to run dances to fund this team. From then it has gone from strength to strength with the establishment of a hurling side and by the early 80’s they had formed a very successful school of Irish Dancing, social Golf Club, Soccer teams and a Drama School. Penrith Gaels also boasted a travel club, which helped their members save for a trip home to Ireland. Around about this time Penrith Gaels changed its name to “Penrith Gaels Cultural and Sporting Association Limited”

Irish Downunder This website has come about as a result of a one year working holiday I took in Australia a few years ago. The experience not only was a fantastic adventure but also changed my life & opened my eyes to all the wonderful possibilities this great country of Oz has to offer. A land where the beauty of the country is surpassed only by the friendliness of it's multi cultured people.
I noticed however that there wasn't really a site on the net where all the resources needed to undertake such a trip were available together. So I decided to design a site where you can obtain some useful advice before you head to the Land Down Under.
 This site is dedicated to providing you with information that should be of some help to you as you plan a journey of a lifetime, a journey of self-discovery and most of all Craic, loads & loads of Craic.
