The heartland of French rugby will host it's first ever international Gaelic football match tomorrow. The French Gaelic Football Federation is 10 years old this year, and the game between France and Italy is being staged to commemorate this event.
The match is being held in the Corbarieu Stadium in Toulouse and it also marks the fifth anniversary of the Toulouse GAA club, Tolosa Gaels.
There are currently no fewer than 20 GAA clubs in France with approximately 600 registered players. The GAA contend that 80% of those players are French born.
The first ever Gaelic football match in Italy (or 'Calcio Gaelico' as the local press called it) took place in October 2012 between Ascaro Rovigo and Padova.
France face Italy in the ladies football at 2.00 and then the men take each other on at 4.00.
The banner proudly declares that former French winger Vincent Clerc, who scored an absurd number of tries against Ireland, is supporting the project.
