The long winter is over! The 2013 Boston GAA season at the Irish Cultural Center in Canton begins on Sunday, April 14 with the first round of the Pat O’Brien Cup. The first round games will feature the holders, Wolfe Tones who will play Cork, Galway meet senior champions Shannon Blues, and Aidan McAnespies will play last year’s beaten finalists, Donegal. There will be a back door system where the first round losers will play again. Kerry, Christopher’s, and the Connemara Gaels are already into the quarter-finals.
This year will also see revamped senior and junior football competitions. The senior football championship will consist of 8 teams. The junior football championship will feature three sections. Junior A1 and Junior A2 will each have 6 teams, and there will be a smaller Junior B championship.
Also, there are three teams traveling to New York this weekend for the John Joe Cassidy 7-a-side football competition which marks the beginning of the New York Championship. Wolfe Tones, the only non-New York Based club to win will be defending the title they won last year. Also traveling are Cork and Connemara Gaels. Best of luck to all three teams.
