The Officers and Members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Greater New York are proud to announce that they will be sponsoring the 6th Annual Fire Fighter Sean Tallon Memorial Gaelic Sports Tournament on Saturday, November 15th at Gaelic Park in The Bronx, New York from 10:00am – 4:00pm.

The tournament is conducted under the jurisdiction and direction of The New York Gaelic Athletic Association Minor Board.  The tournament will host over 30 youth teams competing in Gaelic Football and Hurling.  The teams that will be participating will come from the 5 Boroughs of New York City, as well as teams from Westchester, Rockland, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  It is expected that overall there will be over 250 youths participating in the tournament.  There will be 3 Football Divisions and 1 Hurling Division, with a trophy/cup presented to each Division Champion.  All participating players will receive an AOH Tournament Medal.

The tournament is possible due to a tremendous collective effort from various AOH County Boards and Divisions from The Greater New York City area.  This year, the tournament is co-sponsored by The GAA Minor Board, The AOH Bronx County Board,  The AOH New York County Board, The AOH Queens County Board, The AOH Westchester County Board, AOH Division #18 of Peekskill, and The AOH Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers, NY.

The Tournament is dedicated to the memory and legacy of FDNY Firefighter Sean Patrick Tallon, a native of Yonkers, NY who lost his life responding to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.  For more information on Sean Tallon, you can visit his memorial webpage at: http://www.fdnytenhouse.com/911/details/sean_p_tallon.htm
