History of the Earls

Scroll down to see the evolution of the Earls of Leuven 



The first-ever AGM was held in the local watering hole in Leuven - Thomas Stapleton's Irish pub. 


Pictured on the left is the first-ever sponsorship contribution received by the Earls, again, written up and signed in Stapleton's pub.

The contributor - an unnamed local businessman who was of sound mind and body at the time of signing.

(He may or may not have lost an arm wrestle in the moments leading up)


First match

The Earls were invited to participate in an exhibition match against Craobh Rua CLG at the St. Patrick's day festival of Brussels.
