The 8th Annual Firefighter Sean Tallon Tournament was held on November 13th at Gaelic Park in The Bronx.  The tournament is held each year to remember the life and legacy of NYC Firefighter Sean Tallon, who was a member of Ladder Company 10 in NYC and lost his life responding to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade center on September 11, 2001.

The tournament is sponsored by the AOH of the greater New York City Metro area and is operated under the authority of the New York GAA Minor Board.



The FDNY Ceremonial Unit Honor Guard and the FDNY Emerald Society Pipes and Drums lead the over 400 “Under-8” players onto the field to compete in a day long tournament competing in Gaelic Games.  The competition is now in its 8th year and has grown to include 4 football divisions and 1 hurling division.




Thanks to the several AOH sponsors who ensure this tournament is success each year.  Sponsors included the AOH Bronx, Queens, and Westchester County Boards as well as Divisions #3 and #5 of The Bronx, Division #18 Peekskill and Division #1 Yonkers.
