CYC GAA Tournament and Parade



AOH of Yonkers to March in Continental Youth Championships Parade on McLean Avenue


The Parade Flyer Lists all the Details!
  
     The CYC Tournament is coming to New York this year, and The AOH of Yonkers is proud to announce that we have been confirmed as a marching unit in a celebratory parade that will march on Mclean Avenue in Yonkers in July!

     Every year, The Continental Youth Championship Tournament is held to promote Irish Youth Sports.  The tournament has grown to become the biggest tournament of Gaelic Sports outside of Ireland!  Over 2,500 children aged U6-U18 will participate in hundreds of games organized over the course of a 4 day tournament to be held at Randall’s Island in New York City.  The 2014 tournament is scheduled to run from July 24th thru the 27th.

     Division One is a proud supporter of The New York GAA Minor Board, and we are a co-sponsor of The Sean Tallon Memorial Gaelic Football Tournament every October.  We believe that sports is a very important part of Irish Culture, and we look forward to welcoming young athletes from all over the country as they visit New York City and Yonkers.

Dedication of The Commodore John Barry Memorial



Hibernians to Gather at U.S. Naval Academy for Commodore Barry Memorial Dedication

Small Scale Model of the Barry Memorial

      The Ancient Order of Hibernians have long been dedicated to raising awareness of a true American Hero, Commodore John Barry, and they will gather together in the coming weeks to finally dedicate a fitting memorial to The Father of the U.S. Navy.

 
Commodore John Barry

      John Barry was born in Wexford, Ireland and immigrated to America after being forced off of his ancestral lands by the British.  He was already an able seaman by this time and established himself as a wealthy merchant in Philadelphia at the outbreak of The Revolutionary War.

     During the war, he offered his services to the Continental Congress and commanded the first ships to defeat and capture British warships.  He was so successful and respected that President George Washington presented him with Commission #1 in the new United States Navy.

     On May 10th, hundreds of members of the A.O.H will travel to the U.S. Naval Academy to dedicate a memorial to Commodore John Barry.  The memorial is an eight foot tall granite monument just inside the Academy grounds.  The AOH was instrumental in getting permission for the memorial as well as raising funds to complete it.

     Congratulations to Barry Memorial Committee members John McInerney and Jack O’Brien, who worked tirelessly to make this day possible.

St. Patrick's Day Parade Marching Season 2014



Yonkers Hibernians on Parade
A.O.H. of Yonkers Completes another Successful
 St. Patrick’s Day Marching Season

 
AOH of Yonkers Marching in The NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade
 
     The 2014 St. Patrick’s Day Parade marching season is now complete, and The Myles Scully Division One of Yonkers can take pride in its performance this year.  The members of Division one marched in 4 parades this month.  Here is a small recap of all the parades.


AOH of Yonkers Marching in The White Plains Parade
  
     The AOH of Yonkers marched in the 17th Annual White Plains Parade for the first time this year, and we were very impressed with this parade.  Thanks go out to Parade Chairman John Martin for the great welcome we received on Mamaroneck Avenue.  We will be joining you each year from now on!


AOH of Yonkers Marching in The Eastchester Parade
   
      The 10th Annual Eastchester St. Patrick’s Day Parade was special this year because the parade committee chose to honor our Division Chaplain Rev Eric Raaser.  Congratulations to Brendan Lynch and the entire parade committee on your 10th Anniversary!

AOH of Yonkers on WNBC-TV Channel 4 NYC Parade Coverage
   
      The 253rd Annual NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade was truly an amazing event; as it is every year.  Our members were especially thrilled to be included in the parade television coverage.  We wish to thank Parade Chairman John Dunleavy and the rest of the committee who stood firm protecting the message of St. Patrick’s Day.

AOH Division 1 Marching in The Yonkers St. Patrick's Day Parade
   
      The month concluded with The 59th Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day on McLean Avenue, and we can only say WOW!  The crowds were record breaking, and the weather was the best it had been all month long. Congratulations to the combined efforts of the Yonkers Parade Committee, who achieved what was once thought to be impossible. Special congratulations to our member Kevin Hartnett, who was chosen as an Aide to the Grand Marshal this year.  We would like to thank all of the visiting AOH marching groups from The Bronx, Rockland County, NY, Bergen County, NJ, and even Newport, Rhode Island who marched up the Emerald Mile this year.  Because of you, this parade had a very visible AOH presence, and we thank all of you for your support!

    Hibernians marched, Hibernians stood proud and tall, but most importantly, Hibernians led by example.  We have already reset our St. Patrick’s Day countdown clock for 2015, and we hope to see all of you in next year’s celebrations!
