The Boston GAA season begins the middle of April. The first competitive games of the 2009 GAA season were played last Sunday with the Pat O’Brien Cup. The Sheehan Cup for hurlers and the Orla Benson Cup for the ladies footballers will begin in the next week or two. The cup games give clubs a chance to get a run out for the players and get the season going in earnest. The championship begins in the middle of May and the schedule will be available in the next week or 2.
In the first round of the Pat O’Brien Cup the Connemara Gaels beat Kerry by a score of 2-9 to 0-6. Aiden McAnespies beat Armagh-Notre Dame and Galway beat the Wolfe Tones.
McAnespies started their 2009 season the way they ended 2008 - with a win.
