The Northernmost Point: a new documentary on the world’s most northerly GAA game

The Oulu Elks and Helsinki Harps made history in a game held just south of the Arctic Circle last October.

MORE THAN 1300 miles away from Croke Park, the world’s most northerly GAA game took place near the Arctic Circle earlier this year.

Raati Stadium in Oulu was the venue when the Oulu Elks and the Helsinki Harps met in the All-Finland Gaelic football finals.

The match is the subject of a new documentary, The Northernmost Point, which tells the story of Finland’s growing GAA community, the players, the clubs and their place in history.

Here’s Oulu:
