About Northern Gaels HC

Northern Gaels (formerly Lahti Gaels) was formed in the summer of 2001 by a misguided Irishman attempting to introduce a new sport to Finland.
Unfortunately the club never got going : this site remains for posterity only

Training normally takes place in Hyvinkää on sunday afternoons but the club is hoping to start regular training soon in Lahti.

Where are we?

The city of Lahti (Lahtis in Swedish) is located 100km north of the Finnish capital, Helsinki. It is approximatly 1.5 hours driving time from Helisnki to Lahti City. From Helsinki-Vantaa Airport it is just a 1 hour journey.
The small town of Hyvinkää is located about 45 minutes south of Lahti and provides a suitable traning area.

Helsinki, Lahti and some of the other majour cities in southern Finland can be seen in the map below.
