The Hibs @ Berlin September 22nd 2018
The Hibs at Ausgburg - June 3oth
Saturday June 30th, saw some Hibs play at the 3rd round of the Central European Championship and while the results for the Hibs (or Mayo) may not have gone our way, a great day was had.
In blistering heat the fantastic Hibs played out of their skins, scored wonderful points, great saves, yelled at refs, drank beer and made new friends. Also got lovely 'Irish' suntans.
We also go some silverware with a trophy (for chief yeller at refs, she says), and one of the players of tournament.
Our next tournament will be in Berlin in September. And this time we will wear sunscreen! #HibsAbú #wegoagain

A club, part of a worldwide GAA community
The Prague Hibernians form part of the ever growing Irish community in Prague and the Czech Republic. We have members who have grown up here. Who have made Prague their home. Who will make Prague their home. And students on Erasmus and beyond.
We are able to run this club because of the members who give so much, and because of our sponsors who kindly help fund our efforts.
We are also able to function as a club because of the commitment of the committee, the support of Europe GAA, The GAA as a worldwide community.
