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!
