Kevin Barry Team Has A Darn Good Day
/” rel=”attachment wp-att-7300″>
The temperature was reading somewhere around “summer on the sun,” but the Kevin Barry Gaelic Football Club played it pretty cool, playing to a draw against he Young Ireland and triumphing over Eire Og in Men’s Div. 1 Gaelic Football on Sunday, July 15, at Cardinal Dougherty High School Field in Philadelphia.
Special shout-out to the Young Irelander’s Luke Coyle, who suited up at noon to fill in for some missing Allentown Hibernian players, then came back ready for football action. It was so hot, we didn’t make it to the last game. But we have photos of all the action from the Barry-Irelanders matchup.
You can see them here.
On Sunday, July 22, catch plenty of action on the field as the run to the championship reaches its climax. Here’s the schedule:
