Catching Up on GAA Action

Happy time

Happy time

Two big Philly GAA football matches last Sunday down at Cardinal Dougherty.

First up, St. Pats Donegal came out and played strongly to top Tyrone 0-11 to 0-2.

The second game was closer, with the Young Irelands over the Kevin Barrys, 3-11 to 1-14. Our pal Gwyneth MacArthur, who has a real knack for capturing GAA action, was on the sidelines, and she caught all of the action, on and off the field.

If you’ve not seen Gaelic Athletic Association sports, we recommend it highly. You could watch the Phillies’ relievers squander yet another lead, or you could watch a bunch of crazy guys playing all out in a sport that makes major league baseball look like tai chi.

From the Philly GAA, here’s what’s on at Dougherty this Sunday:

  • 6/30/2013 12:00pm Division 1 St. Patrick’s v. Kevin Barry’s Tyrone (Out Of Town Ref) Pat Na Toraidhe
  • 6/30/2013 1.30pm Hurling Na Toraidhe v. Allentown Young Irelands TBD
  • 6/30/2013 3.00pm Junior B Young Ireland v. Kevin Barry’s Allentown TBD
  • 6/30/2013 4.00pm Division 1 Tyrone V. Young Irelands Kevin Barry’s (Out Of Town Ref)

We recommend that you keep up to date on the Philly GAA Facebook page.

  1. Does anyone know if there are any pick-up Gaelic leagues in Philly?
