About the Movie
In 1967 a group of Victorian AFL (VFL) stars jetted off to challenge the All-Ireland champions, County Meath, at their own game. The players were, and are, household names - Barassi, Skilton, Jesaulenko, Davis, Hart, Nicholls, Mann, Dugdale, Fraser. Most didnt own passports. Most had barely been out of Victoria. The tourists were dubbed 'The Galahs'. But they played like the champions they were on an action packed world adventure. The Galahs is a rare feature film that reconnects fans with all time greats of both VFL and GAA football. It's a wonderful and largely untold story. It's full of fondly remembered travel anecdotes from young men on their first overseas adventure.
What a film! If you need a burtst of VFL nostalgia, and you want to see some great super 8 footage, watch this gem of a film.
