Following a break after the conclusion of the recent New South Wales (NSW) League, we saw a return to Gaelic sports action with the start of the NSW GAA Championship two weeekends ago at Mono Park, Sydney. To get things rolling, there was a very exciting football championship opener pitting last year’s champions Young Irelands against the in-form League winners, Cormac McAnallens with the latter coming away three points winners in a tight game. However, McAnallens were stopped in their tracks on Sunday when beaten by their league final opponents, and table toppers Michael Cusacks who had already put paid to Clan na Gael the week before.  ‘Clan though are going well as they bounced back from that defeat to overturn Penrith on the weekend and now lie joint second with ‘McAnallens. Meanwhile in hurling, league champions Sydney Shamrocks lead the way with two comfortable wins over Central Coast, and notably this weekend, against ’09 champs Craobh Padraig, who languish at the bottom of the table. In Camogie, Cormac McAnallens are going very well and lead with a draw and a win to their name while league winners Clan na Gael, who drew with ‘Macs in Rd 1, lie in second spot. Meanwhile in Ladies Football, it’s no surprise to see league winners Central Coast, who are unbeaten this season, lie in top position with two easy wins, however, Michael Cusacks who share top spot with 6 points from two victories, could pose a challenge yet in this championship.
