An Cumann Lúthchleas Gael Tír Eoghain Philadelphia has elected their new officers for 2007.  Michael Treacy has been re-elected as Club Chairman for a second term. Paul Welsh has been elected for the post of Vice-Chairman. Pete McDermott will keep watch over the finances and club assets as Treasurer. Gary Girvan has been elected as the Club Registrar. Peter McDermott moves from Registrar to Club Secretary. Last, but not least, Dominic Ward has been re-elected as the Club’s Public Relations Officer. The officers will have their work cut out for them, but Tír Eoghain Philadelphia is in competent, capable hands. The club must get on the ball early to retain the Philadelphia Men’s Football Championship. Communication between newly elected officers and current players has been established with several prospective players for the coming season. Anyone wishing to join the club as a player, supporter, or a sponsor; may contact us through our club website (http://tyrone.philadelphia.gaa.ie). The club extends its sincerest thanks for all of the support and dedication from last year’s players, sponsors, supporters, management and officers.

This year, the club anticipates traveling along the East Coast to participate in several tournaments and seven-a-side competitions, pending approval from the necessary governing bodies. Among them is the Fort Lauderdale, Saint Patrick’s GFC Seven-a-Side Tournament which is scheduled for Saturday, March 10th during Spring Break. At the end of March/early April, the Cavan New York club is organizing a tournament, which historically takes place in Van Cortlandt Park, in the Bronx, NY. In June, the Fairfield County Irish Festival (www.irishfestival.org) hosts a tournament from Friday (15th) through Sunday (17th) in Indian Ledge Park, near Trumbull, CT.

The club are in the process of establishing a charitable contributor committee, whereby the club will organize challenge games and a social event after each and donate the proceeds to select local charities.

The club is in the final design stages for the all-new, exclusive, ONEILL’S Tír Eoghain Philadelphia jerseys. Club officers and players have reviewed the concepts and finalized the design aspects. The club would like to thank our main sponsor, Philadelphia Racetrack and Casino, for their continued patronage and support.

Training has started, the club looks forward to seeing all the boys out there putting in the effort.

Congratulations go out to David Hopkins who was married back in the fall. Also, congratulations to Joe McGinn, who was married before Christmas in sunny Florida.

The club is finalizing arrangements for a Dinner Dance in the coming months. The presentation of medals to last year’s players will take place that evening. Tickets to the event and advertisement submittal forms for the Annual Journal will be available in the next couple of weeks. Live music performed by “Lefty” John Kelly and Company. Further updates will include honored guests and awards for the Gala.

I could be going to Canada next year for a year or so. Looking forward to playing a bit of GAA out there. Id say we (myself and the queen) will be based in Vancouver... Is there a team there? How many teams in Canada? What are the structures out there or do you guys just play local cups?
