     The countdown to the 100th Anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising began yesterday at Gaelic Park in the Bronx as a large cross section the Irish Community hosted a Gaelic Football Tournament to commemorate the Centenary of the death of Irish patriot Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa. Rossa, who was instrumental in building support and momentum for what would eventually lead to the 1916 Easter Rising died in New York City on June 29th 1915.

     The tournament was sponsored by several Irish organizations, including The Hudson Valley Irish Center, the County Cork Association of New York, and The Ancient Order of Hibernians.  Several dignitaries were in attendance as well, including Barbara Jones - Irish Consular General, Williams Rossa Cole – Great Grandson of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa, and Sophie Colgan – The 2015 New York Rose of Tralee.

 
The AOH was a proud sponsor of the O'Donovan Rossa Tournament

     A stirring moment occurred just prior to the start of the event when Williams Rossa Cole recited the words of Padraig Pearse’s oration that was made at the O’Donovan Rossa funeral in Dublin in August of 1915.  “The fools, the fools, the fools, they have left us our Fenian dead! said Rossa, while Ireland holds these graves, Ireland unfree shall never be at peace.

     There were several teams from around the NYC area that participated in the tournament, including County Mayo, Manhattan Gaels, and The Wolfe Tones, who traveled all the way from Detroit Michigan to be there.

     Congratulations go to all who worked very hard to make this event a great success, especially AOH National Immigration Chairman Dan Dennehy, who worked tirelessly to make this event a reality. AOH Division One of Yonkers was proud to sponsor such an important cultural event!
