Local GAA Discussion / Young Irelands GFC Philadelphia
« on: March 18, 2014, 05:48:08 PM »
The 2013  Philadelphia Men's Senior Football Champions are a small Club located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia.  We are actively seeking new members and players of all standards. We are able to help with employment and housing!!

We train @ the Drexel Hill Middle school located in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. There are tons of young Irish people, Irish bars and the craic in the immediate area. Havertown is called the "33 rd County" by the large Irish population in Havertown and Upper Darby. Downtown Philadelphia the the airport are minutes away by car or rail. We are 90 minutes from Wildwood, NJ and the South Jersey Shore resorts.

If interested please contact Mick @ include a telephone number!

Non Irish friends heading home on Monday and asking for a heads up in the above cities for a pint and dinner. Any suggestions? Not familiar with those counties. Cheers.

Paul and Fiona Kealey are the proud parents of 3 yr old son, Darragh, and reside just outside of Philadelphia, Pa. In 2012 Fiona was diagnosed with stomach/ovarian cancer. After months of chemo and major operations she was pronounced cancer free. Unfortunately in July, 2013, the cancer re-appeared. This has resulted in another lengthy hospital stay for Fiona. She also faces another long course of chemotherapy as well. The emotional stress upon this family is staggering. The financial burden placed upon this family has been devastating. Between loss of wages and medical bills the totals are staggering.

On Nov. 23 @ Cobbs Creek Golf Course, Philadelphia, Pa a 10:00am Shotgun start will be held. e-mail contact is former NACB Chairman Paddy Rooney @

Sponsorships for the golf outing are available. $1000, $500, $250, $100.
The $100 gets your company/name on a golf hole @ the outing. Any size donation will be gratefully accepted. Checks may be made out to Philadelphia Irish Open Golf Charities and mailed to 12 Tenby Rd., Havertown, Pa 19083 USA.

Paul is a long time member of the Young Irelands GFC in Philadelphia and both he and Fiona are well known and respected GAA people both in Ireland and America.

Thank you for your support in this effort!!

tell me. Is there anyway to listen to the Donegal v Monaghan match? No TV, again, and the radio stations aren't listing it. The bars here in Philly, which is a big football v hurling town, are getting killed this year by Setanta. Thanks
