Boston Northeast GAA 2009 - Let the Games Begin

While I was away in the balmy climes of the Emerald Isle, the first weekend of championship football in Canton came to a premature halt due to thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms seem to have become a regular feature of Sundays in late May and early June. It makes you wonder if somebody "up there" enjoys seeing the board officers and clubs having deal with rescheduling the senior fixtures since Junior games cannot start until the club has fulfilled a senior game. 6:00 during the week certainly does not suit everybody but what can you do?

The Sheehan Cup was won by Wexford, and Tir na nOg won the club's first Orla Benson Cup. A championship would be a nice addition for the Brighton ladies this year....

Also, last Sunday was the first day of Championship football in Boston. Wins for Mayo, Shannon Blues, Donegal, Christopher's, and Wolfe Tones. Pat O'Brien Cup winners, Aiden McAnespies headline next Sunday, June 7, as they play Wolfe Tones. Also, at 3:30 Fr. Tom's and Tipp open the hurling season. Come back on Monday for reports on both games.
