If you didn’t get your fill of hurling and football on Sunday afternoon at Cardinal Dougherty, then, well, you must be insatiable.
The day’s games started with a fast-paced hurling match, and the rest of the afternoon was dedicated to football, both men and women. The day’s biggest upset came in the final game of a series between women’s national champs, the Mairead Farrells, and challengers the Notre Dames. The Notre Dames came out on top, 3-14 to 1-10, winning the Philadelphia Senior Champions crown.
We have photos from all but the final game of the day, the men’s Division 1 football matchup between the St. Patricks and the Kevin Barrys. (Wish we had time for all of them, but we were verging on heat stroke.)
