The GAA continues to thrive in the Middle East. 'We're now 15 clubs spread over six countries and we have 106 teams'.

Is anyone here based in Argentina or anywhere else in South America? I ask because my Spanish language translation of my Gaelic football informational video has just blown up on Youtube with 25,000 views in the last two days. The majority of traffic is coming from Argentina, followed by Spain, followed by relatively trivial amounts coming from other Spanish speaking countries.

When I see a spike in views I usually look at the traffic source and find that someone has posted a link somewhere like Reddit. That hasn't happened this time, most of the traffic is coming from people going to Youtube and typing in "futbol gaelico" as a search term. Something must have happened down there, the game must have gotten some coverage on TV or something.

Likely James Carr’s goal. It has been viewed over 8 million times on Twitter alone. I think it began in Argentina. To them it’s probably the Gaelic Games version of Maradonas goal against England.

The GAA's tweet has a lot of Spanish language comments on it, many people asking what the sport is. I wonder how this got started.

The name Mayo might be cause some confusion.

James Carr “El talentoso”

New nickname?
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Funny we were talking about that the other day....Carr's goal was excellent but Mulligan's was on a different level.

Marca in Spain also were mentioning it on twitter and the website

Thanks, Munch. That would explain the traffic from Spain. My Spanish language video typically gets 80 to 100 views a day, but it jumped to 3,000 on Sunday, 5,600 on Monday, 6,200 on Tuesday, and dropped off to 3,000 yesterday.

The English version usually gets about 800 views per day, but it's also seen a spike in the last few days, peaking at 14,000 on Monday.

Was a bit soccer like the way he squeezed between two defenders like they couldn't touch him.

Anyone who watches it with soccer in mind will think its a great goal but all i thought off when he did that was what shocking defending.

TBF tho it was a good goal but I thought Hurley's goal was better this weekend tho in saying that you could maybe say it was down to bad custodianship

he hit the stanchion though and that always makes a goal look better,.

A MESSIANIC GOLAZO IN GAELIC FOOTBALL!

The talented James Carr, from Mayo, scored an incredible goal against Galway in the Gaelic Football Championship in Ireland. A sport that has its roots in that nation.
