Sweepstakes Raffle to Benefit St. Patrick's

Please Support the 2017 Spring Fundraiser! 

 
For our Spring Fundraiser we are selling tickets for a draw hosted by the Tipperary GAA Club. (flyers to be handed out next home game)
 
St. Pat’s keep HALF the money collected.  Tickets are entered in a monthly sweepstakes where winners are selected to win a variety of prizes throughout the year, including cash, cars and holidays (all of which have cash options).
 
The Sweepstakes is in it’s 30th successful year and NY Clubs have won over $100,000 in prizes in the years they have been utilizing it for fundraisers, so there’s great opportunities to win!!!
 
It starts in May, St. Pat’s sold 55 tickets thus far and raised over $3000 for the Club.  This was a fantastic effort from all that purchased tickets but we need to sell a lot more to fund the programs that we offer.
 
The club is discounting every ticket sold in June by $10 to encourage ticket sales, and they’re hoping every St. Pat’s family will take at least one ticket.  June Tickets are $100. $45 of which St. Patrick’s keep. 
 
While they may seem pricey, please keep in mind, it's just $10 per month to enter all year for amazing monthly prizes and St. Patrick’s is all volunteer and non-profit.  The money collected helps us provide jerseys, gear, camp, and tournaments. 
 
If you haven’t already done so, please consider purchasing a ticket to help support our club.  
 
Checks to be written to St. Pat’s - Contact: Paul O’Meara  and Cora O’Meara   for tickets.  Board members will have tickets available at this weeks games also. 
 
Many Thanks for all your support!

NY vs Sligo: Connacht Championship 2017

St. Patrick's Own: Justin O'Halloran Takes Charge of NY Team

Attention All GAA Fans! BUS TRIP TO GAELIC PARK FOR NEW YORK VS. SLIGO

The Gaelic American Club is sponsoring a bus trip to Gaelic Park, Bronx, NY, leaving the Club at 1:00 pm on Sunday May 7th (the bus will also stop at Byrnes’ Tavern [Stamford] on route to/from Gaelic Park) for the first match of the 2017 Connacht Senior Gaelic Football Championship as the New York GAA take on Sligo (travelling out from Ireland). 

This is the only chance to see a match in the United States for the 2017 All Ireland Gaelic Football Championship . It is an excellent opportunity for young players & their families to see, and be a part of, the excitement of intercounty GAA competitions! 

Last year, New York threw a major scare into Roscommon in a thriller that will go down in the history of NY GAA.  Justin O'Halloran, Co. Cavan native and StPatrick's U10 Co-Manager, will once again take charge of the New York team as they face off against their rivals from Connacht.   Throw in is at 3pm & the bus will leave one hour following the final whistle.  (Game time changed from previous announcements due to RTE broadcast schedule). The cost of the bus is: Adults $20, Students and Senior citizens, no charge.  Cost of admission to the match is separate and must be paid at the gate (no charge for children to enter Gaelic Park).  Please wear your StPatrick’s gear! 

To reserve your seat on the bus, please email  .

Big Apple ready to take a bite out of Sligo

 

By John Harrington

New York Gaelic Football team manager, Justin O’Halloran, believes it’s only a matter of time before the Big Apple wins a match in the Connacht Championship for the first time ever.

On Sunday they’ll play Sligo in the first round of this year’s provincial championship, and O’Halloran is bullish about his team’s chance.

“Well obviously the idea is that it is going to be this Sunday,” says O’Halloran. “We are hoping for it. Obviously it’s going to happen at some stage.

“The only goal is to win, there is no point playing if you don’t have a goal. And that’s our goal, to win.

“Hopefully, the sooner the better for us now. We are going on the right track to make it happen. It’s all going to be down to the day when the boys step across that line. It’s going to be up to them then.”

Sligo will treat the New York challenge with the utmost of respect because of what happened when Roscommon visited Gaelic Park last year.

Kevin McStay’s team were expected to win the match comfortably, but in the end they only barely survived the assignment, edging a one-point win on a score-line of 1-15 to 0-17.

New York earned huge honour in defeat, but it was a cold comfort.

“To be honest with you it’s still bittersweet,” says O’Halloran. “When you get so close to a thing that you are looking for so many years to achieve and you come so close and to be honest with you if we had another two minutes, which we should have had, we could have made it.

“But you deal with it. You deal with the good and the bad. There’s nothing you can do about that once the whistle is gone.

“People can say Roscommon played bad but in my opinion would be that we made them play bad. We actually played very well and we put pressure on them when they had the ball.

“And when we had the ball we put pressure on them so they might have played bad, but we actually played well and made them play bad.”

New York manager Justin O'Halloran and his players react to their agonising one-point defeat to Roscommon in the 2016 Connacht Football Championship.

New York’s preparations for Sunday’s match will have been helped by two challenge matches they played against Donegal last month.

They lost the first by seven points and the second by eight, and O’Halloran believes the two matches has brought his team on a lot.

“We got up to speed. I thought Donegal played pretty much at championship level. It was good for us to get to that level before our actual championship game and see where we were at and prepare boys for being able to handle that, so it was very good.

“The more games you get the better you are going to be, and you don’t want to see mistakes on your one game, so if you can see them in challenge games beforehand, and fix them for the actual championship game it means a hell of a lot.”

New York will be without injured midfielders Brian Connor and Luke Loughlin who both excelled in last year’s match against Roscommon, but in the credit column they’ve gained former Mayo defender Tom Cunniffe and Dublin hurler Danny Sutcliffe who is reputed to be almost as handy with the big ball as he is the small one.

“Ah, they are getting on good, they are training away,” says O’Halloran. “They are looking good in training anyway.

“Both of them played well against Donegal. Tom only played one game. Danny played both games now and I expect big things out of them now come Sunday.”
