2014 North American Gaelic Games Finals
Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Friday, August 29th – Sunday, August 31st

In 2013, Cleveland GAA was the host city for the North American Gaelic Games finals. This year, the honor has gone to the North East Division in Boston, Massachusetts. The games take place over Labor Day Weekend from Friday to Sunday, August 29th-31st.

For the thousands of players, members and supporters of the GAA in North America, the finals weekend is the annual climax to the season.

The 2014 playoffs will see over 120 teams gather in Boston, some traveling from as far as Seattle, Washington and the Cayman Islands. More than 2,500 GAA players will be taking part in what promises to be a marathon festival of Irish sports.

Since the start of the North American GAA Season in April this year, the regional divisions that make up the North American County Board (NACB) have been running their divisional competitions in Hurling, Camogie & Gaelic Football. From Páirc na nGael in San Francisco to Gaelic Park in Chicago, teams have been battling it out locally with each in order to qualify for what are commonly referred to as the “North Americans”.

The five playing fields at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton, MA, will be filled throughout Labor Day weekend with teams from all over North America. After more than 120 games of Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football, the North American Champions at all adult levels will be crowned on Sunday afternoon.

The current President of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Liam O’Neill will be on hand to present cups and medals to the winning teams and players.
