Sean Tallon Memorial Football Tournament 2013



Yonkers AOH Sponsors Irish Youth Sports Tournament in Woodlawn


NY Celtic and St. Barnabas in action at Paddy's Field in Woodlawn

     The legacy of a local Yonkers hero was remembered this past Sunday as The AOH of Yonkers presented the 5th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Memorial Gaelic Football Tournament, held at Paddy’s Field in Woodlawn.  The tournament is held in conjunction with the G.A.A. Minor Board of New York each October.

 
The Tournament includes local youth teams from The Bronx and Yonkers
     
       The tournament is named after N.Y.C. Firefighter Sean Patrick Tallon, who lost his life in the terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.  

 
The competition was fierce!
      
      Once again, the four local Under-8 youth teams (St. Raymond’s, St. Barnabas, NY Rangers and NY Celtic) competed in a round robin tournament to crown this year’s winner of The Sean Tallon Memorial Cup.

      After a well-played final match, NY Celtic were named The Champions for 2013!  

Here is a Video with Highlights from this Year's Tournament!



      The organizers of the tournament were also honored this year to welcome Sean Tallon’s Mother Eileen and Sister Rosaleen, who helped present the Championship Cup and medals to this year’s winners!

Organizers welcomed members of Sean Tallon's family to the tournament this year

     Thanks go to Division One Sports Director Joe Hallinan, who works tirelessly to make sure this event is a success each and every year!

       The Hibernians were warmly greeted by Msgr. Robert Richie, who reminded those gathered that all human life must be respected and protected from conception till natural death.  He also told the story about how the A.O.H. defended Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral against those who wished to destroy it back in the 1840’s.
 
Division One members present the gifts during mass
    
       The Hibernians then attended a breakfast arranged for them at Maggie’s Place on east 47th Street. Notables in attendance were NYS President Jim Burke, National Director Charles “Chip” Mclean, National Pro-Life Chairman Jere Cole, and N.Y. County President Tom Beirne.
