A little bit of history was made last weekend when no less than 5 clubs traveled from Boston to New York’s Randall’s Island to participate in the John Joe Cassidy seven a side tournament. The tournament appears to be growing in popularity 200 miles by interstate 95. It comes at an ideal time for clubs to kick off the season and is a great team builder.
2013 winners, Wolfe Tones, were joined by the Connemara Gaels, Cork, Galway, and Christopher’s.
The Tones were the only side to make it out of their group, defeating fellow Boston club the Connemara Gaels, Mayo and Brooklyn Shamrocks on the way. Having lost to Cavan New York in the group stages the Tones faced the New Yorkers again in the final and lost out by five points. Many of the visitors remained on Sunday to watch Cavan playing New York at Gaelic Park. All in all a great weekend away for the Boston clubs.
