The 6th Annual Sean Tallon Tournament



AOH of Greater New York Sponsors 6th Annual Sean Tallon Tournament

The FDNY Ceremonial Unit and Color Guard at Gaelic Park

     The life and legacy of a New York City Firefighter who was killed on September 11, 2001 was celebrated in grand fashion as AOH County Boards and Divisions from around The New York City area teamed up to sponsor a region wide Gaelic sports tournament which featured over 250 youngsters in an all day event.

Tough Competition at Gaelic Park in the Sean Tallon Tournament

     The 6th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Memorial Tournament welcomed over 24 youth teams (Under-8) from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut competing in Irish Football and Hurling.  The tournament was operated in conjunction with The New York GAA Minor Board and was held at Gaelic Park in the Bronx.

Young Hurlers at the Sean Tallon Tournament

     The tournament was originally founded by Division #1 in Yonkers to promote Irish Culture and to honor a local hero killed on September 11th.  Sean Tallon was a U.S. Marine Reservist and a member of FDNY Ladder 10 in Manhattan, whose firehouse is located directly across the street from The World Trade Center. 

The Tournament is held to Honor Firefighter Sean Tallon of Yonkers

      The tournament was held as a small local event involving only 4 teams for the first 5 years. However, the future of the tournament was put in doubt this year due to the fact that the field in which the event was held had to be closed due to renovations.  An opportunity arose for the AOH to sponsor a much larger regional tournament, but the cost of hosting an event of that size was to big for one Division to handle.  Division #1 reached out to its neighboring AOH County Boards for help.   By the time the tournament was scheduled to be held, the New York, Queens, Bronx and Westchester County Boards, as well as Division #18 in Peekskill all joined as tournament co-sponsors. “The response was overwhelmingly enthusiastic” said Division One President Kevin Ellis, “They saw the potential for this to become a truly great regional event and got behind us to ensure this tournament would continue.”

The Family of Sean Tallon present Awards at the Sean Tallon Tournament

        The FDNY Ceremonial Unit Color Guard participated in the event for the first time this year, and the family of Sean Tallon also was on hand for the awards presentations.  The AOH now has a very large and visible event on the GAA Calendar in New York, and additional AOH Divisions have also expressed interest in joining as sponsors for next years tournament.  “This event will now continue to grow and become bigger each and every year” said Ellis, “The great relationship  that we have established between the AOH and the GAA Minor Board will ensure that both organizations become stronger.”

All Players Received a Medal for Taking Part in the Tournament

        Special thanks to The Tallon Family, FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro, The FDNY Ceremonial Unit & Color Guard, The GAA Minor Board President David McIntyre, The AOH New York County Board President Tom Bierne, The AOH Queens County Board President John Manning, The AOH Bronx County Board President Robert Nolan, The AOH Westchester County Board President Aidan O’Kelly Lynch & AOH Division #18 Peekskill President Vic Versace.
