The Asian Gaelic Games 2012 was played in Kuala Lumpur, Malayisa on October 27-28.  Considering the standard of the opposition, the Viet Celts probably had their best Saturday start yet of an AGG with three fine wins in the burning sun, followed by one hard fought loss in the driving rain. The final group table finished like this.

However, on the Sunday in the knockout stages, they came up against their old rivals, the Mongol Khans and paid the price for failing to contain the Mongolian no. 5, who did the damage. The final score was

Mongol Khans 1.2 (5pts) v Viet Celts 0.4 (4pts).

Overall it was a good tournament for the VC. However,  it was disappointing to go down by a point for the second year in a row against the Mongol Khans. At the same time, the Viet Celts can remain justifiably proud of  their efforts over the weekend led by their debonaire captain, John O’Dowd (JOD) of Kerry who put over all the the VC scores in the Mongol Khans game.
