Gaelic Football League comes to Arkansas

Or, actually, has been there since 2007, but I didn't know. I just got this email from the leader of Arkansas' Gaelic Athletic Association:

Not sure if you've heard of us before but Little Rock GAA has been in existence since late 2007. We are starting our 3rd season of playing the Irish sport of Gaelic Football in Little Rock. We've helpd to spawn new clubs in Northwest Arkansas, Fort Smith, Springfield, MO, and we even have a club trying to get going in Camden AR! We host a tournament on Memorial Day weekend in Little Rock. Last year we had 4 teams: Little Rock, Northwest Arkansas, St. Louis, and Kansas City. Would you mind adding us to your blog link list or maybe even put the word out there? We'd very much like to see a club get spouting in Memphis and Kansas City has said they'd be more than happy to come down and help us do a demonstration some time!

Anyone interested? If there is such a league in Memphis or Tennessee, please give me a shout at sjs1959 at gmail dot com!
