The 7th Annual Sean Tallon Tournament 2015



Yonkers AOH Sponsors 7th Annual
Sean Tallon Tournament at Gaelic Park


Sean Tallon Tournament Opening Ceremony at Gaelic Park in The Bronx
  
     The Ancient Order of Hibernians of Greater New York were proud to once again sponsor The 7th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Memorial Gaelic Sports Tournament which was held at Gaelic Park in The Bronx on November 1st.  The tournament is operated under the jurisdiction of The New York GAA Minor Board.  The tournament is dedicated to the life and legacy of FDNY Firefighter Sean Patrick Tallon of Yonkers, who lost his life responding to the terrorist attacks on The World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

     The FDNY Ceremonial Color Guard along with the FDNY Emerald Society Pipes and Drums led over 250 young athletes onto the field as the event began.  Over 22 teams participated in this year’s tournament, making this the largest turnout in the event’s 7 year history. The tournament that began in 2009 by the Myles Scully Division of Yonkers with only 4 teams has grown each year and is now a major event on the GAA calendar.

     Sean Tallon’s Mother Eileen and sister Rosaleen thanked the GAA Minor Board and the AOH for keeping his memory alive at the tournament’s opening ceremony.  A moment of silence was then observed to remember Past AOH New York State President John Egan, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident the previous day.  John was a big supporter of the Sean Tallon Tournament and was planning on attending the event that day.
