The Fillos played a match against the Irish team frigate 'LE Aoife ', passing through La Coruna, last Saturday. It was during a clear winter evening when Ith, son of Breogán, saw the Emerald Isle from a high tower built by his father, now... known as the Tower of Hercules. From Brigantium, the new city founded in Gallaecia by Breogán himself and now responds to the place name of A Coruña, Ith launched the invasion of the Emerald Isle, but was assassinated by the native population: the Tuatha De Danann. It took decades until Mil, Ith’s son and grandson of Breogán, will avenge the killers of his father and lanzase to conquer the Celts Gaelic Ireland, who this time were victorious. This tells the Book of Invasions (Lebor Gabála Érenn in Gaelic) the arrival of the first Celts to Ireland from Galicia. Sometimes history repeats itself. Two years ago a group of young brigantinos emulated ancestor discovered Ith and also from the Tower of Hercules, a fundamental part of old Ireland: Gaelic football. Now, centuries after the legendary lighthouse rising, these guys take advantage of the shade of the giant Roman to play the most popular sport in Ireland. Fillos of Breogán. So call themselves. The name of the team, the first to play this sport in Galicia, refers precisely to the founding myth Irish Finisterres connecting the two Europeans. Gaelic football, the practice could be summed up as a mixture of soccer and rugby, is the most popular sport in Ireland, with the largest screen in the country quota of 34%. You can throw the ball on goal or sticks to move your feet combined with hands and passes are made with the boot. It is one of the traditional Irish sports federation in the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). The agency operates as a cooperative, which has over 80,000 members throughout Ireland. Still, no player charge any fees. The morning after a final, all are working. His passion is sports petrol and cultural significance and identity that these games are all over the island. This sport combines with other aspects of rugby football When Fillos of Breogán attended federate in the GAA came the question that could happen to anyone: "Who are these Galicians and why they want to play our game?". There are many Gaelic football teams in continental Europe, organized in the European County Board (ECB)-dependent GAA-but most of them are formed by Irish emigrants. Britain, which has its own league, was the exception. Until Fillos appeared. Everything feat when its president, Wenceslao Garcia Zapata, returns from his vacation in love with the sport after watching a game at Croke Park (Dublin), the cathedral of Gaelic football. Soon to be joined by the team's coach, Carlos Seco, who was playing with Nemo Rangers when I lived in Ireland. The family grew rapidly. Today we added 45 Fillos and fillas, with the female athletes of the subsidiary and the second team (and Artabros Breogán Fillas of Oleiros, respectively). The objectives are accomplished in 2010. Some other team is cooking for Galicia, already played about 40 games so far and, most important for athletes, the National Football Gaelic Galician, officially recognized as the GAA, just debuted against Britain. And Mil, the Galicians were victorious. The party that last held on July 20 Narón Siareiros Artabria Fundaçom Galegos and was first in the 128 year history of Gaelic football which faced two national teams, which pleasantly surprised in Ireland. Only the Benelux countries had played before a tournament, but with teams formed by Irish emigrants. Several Gaelic football teams in Spain, but the only native players is composed Galician, the rest are Irish. Reflecting on this phenomenon, coach Carlos Seco referred without hesitation to the cultural connections of the Celtic nations. Start talking about how they drank Pondal Murguia and the Book of Invasions, the green island studies published in the journal Risco Nós or even partial translation Pedrayo Otero did James Joyce's Ulysses. Although it may seem that has nothing to do with kicking a ball, Carlos explains that many of the Galician Celtic began to sport and felt attracted to Irish culture above. And Gaelic football is a mainstay of popular culture of the island, to the point of being banned for several years in England. Historians still argue about the very existence of Celtic ancestry and perhaps never quit, but Galicia and Ireland have a new bond blood sport Breogán.

This September, a team of old boys will return to Brussels and take on the current pretenders to their former shirts. It's a time for for anyone who enjoyed their time in the red to show the 2012 team exactly what they're missing.
