There seems to be a fair few of posters on here from this side of the water

Just think we should keep all the US/Canada stuff in one thread

Whats the story with DC arent they getting their own board ?
Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

Washington DC getting their own county board?

That's the first I've heard of it.

''Following a request from the Baltimore and Washington DC Gaels Clubs that was tabled for convention at a meeting earlier this year, the delegates voted in favor of a new NACB Divisional Board be formed in the Maryland/Virginia/Washington DC area. As a result of this decision teams from the Baltimore and Washington DC clubs will no longer be required to register with the Philadelphia Divisional Board. The new board is expected to be structured prior to the 2007 season.''

I talked with a member of their board and I know that they originally planned on seceding from Philadelphia in 2008.
There was talk that they may do so in 2007...when I get more information on the matter, I'll try to inform everyone.

Tír Eoghain Philadelphia Abú!

At the moment, Tír Eoghain Philadelphia are playing League and Championship football in Philadelphia.
We have contacted Cavan NY's Des Reilly about participating in the Cavan NY Sevens in March/April,
we've also contacted Roger Power and Harry Henderson in Fort Lauderdale (St. Pat's) about competing
in their Tournament on the 10th of March. And in June, we will be up in Fairfield County, Connecticut
for their Annual Tournament. The only other place I hope we're going is to Chicago over Labor Day Weekend.

TÍR EOGHAIN PHILADELPHIA ABÚ!

Lads and lasses,
anyone know if the Fort Lauderdale 7s is on this year- anyone have details?
I see below March 10th is mentioned- is that confirmed?
Thanks

Fort Lauderdale 7 aside
« Reply #13 on: January 23, 2007, 06:15:37 PM »
I just spoke to Harry and he informed me that the Fort Lauderdale 7 aside will be held on the week of March 10th. It will be a one day event and will be limited to either eight or ten teams. You can contact Roger Power at realtypower@bellsouth.net if you need information.
