The Arabian Celts GAA Club was founded in 2008. It is the amalgamation of two previous Clubs in the area, the Bahrain Irish & Naomh Abdullah Dhahran from the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. In the short time since it has been established the Arabian Celts Club has won an All Asia title in 2009 when the Club’s first Team travelled to Bangkok to play in the Asian Gaelic Games. Later that same year the Club’s second Team, the Arabian Legends won the Middle East Shield at the Middle East Gaelic Games. In 2011 the Arabian Celts All Star Team were crowned Middle East Bowl Champions. To date the Club has won two All Asia All Star awards when Captain Johnny McFadden was selected at Full Forward on the All Asia All Star Team for 2009 and Joe Melia was selected at Midfield on the All Asia All Star Team of 2011. In 2011 the Club also had the honor of being voted All Asia Club of the Year which was a fantastic achievement for a Club that had only being established for a short time.
In 2011 the Club has gone from strength to strength with 4 Mens Teams & 2 Ladies Teams competing at the Middle East Gaelic Games. The Club has also set up a Juvenile section in 2011 with an U8,U10,U12 & U14 programme for both Boys & Girls. The Middle East Gaelic Games in Bahrain was the 1st ratified Regional tournament under the Asian County Board and the Club had the honour of hosting the 1st AGB Middle East Gaelic Games.
