Irish Guns head to Australia

Sean Hurley and Emmett Bradley have today left for Australia in hope of starting a career in the AFL. Identified through the first AFL Europe Combine held in Ireland in February this year. The young men have also been involved in the week long European Legion camp in London and played against the AIS-AFL Academy over Easter where they were coached by Peter Schwab and Tadhg Kennelly. We wish them the best of luck over the next 2 weeks. Updates of their trip will be available exclusively to on afleurope.org.
