Wolfe Tones Win NY 7s

Last weekend saw the footballers of Wolfe Tones and Cork travel south to New York to compete in the 7-a-side competition.  Donegal Philadelphia traveled northwards, while local teams Armagh, Cavan, and Kerry also entered the early-season contest.  Despite a gallant show, Cork did not make the semi-final stage and lost key player Mick Lyons for 4-6 weeks with an ankle injury.  The Tones traveled with a strong panel of players however, and defeated Cavan by 5 points in the semi-final.  In the final game the Boston side beat Kerry by eight points, with Cormac J Power getting the player of the tournament award.  Players who fielded for the Tones were Gary Brilly, Mike (Frodo) O’Brien, Kenny Regan, Sean Kelly, CJ Power, Marty Farrell, Collie Carr, Charles McCarthy, Hagan Walsh, Colm Larkin, Keith Gill, Gary Leonard, and Joe Sheridan.  Congratulations to the Tones!
