The Boston Northeast Board would also like to recognize the hard work put in by all of the adult and underage clubs with keeping the games alive and growing in the area.  Our division is the largest in the North American Board with 36 teams competing in 8 competitions, and with an increasingly competitive underage section an incredible amount of work is put into the games each year at all levels.  

Longest Drive:  Tom Kenny
The scope of the Boston Northeast GAA is also ever expanding, with clubs in 4 of the 6 New England states (Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Maine).  With plans for a hurling club in Rhode Island in 2016,  a fifth state will be in the umbrella of the board, as well as a second club in New Hampshire.   Supporting youth development is also a growing component of the Divisional board’s scope.  Proceeds from the golf outing will be critical in helping the board meet the growing needs of facilitating the running of competitions and with the continued developing the game at adult and underage levels.
