The place to be for followers of Gaelic sports in the ‘Big Apple’ was at Gaelic Park in the Bronx last weekend as this year’s New York Intermediate Football Championship was decided as well as the not so small matter of finding out what two teams would reach this year’s senior football championship final.

On Saturday, the Dubs and the Kingdom were at it again but this time on the other side of the Atlantic, and, in a thrilling Overtime struggle a pair of goals decided things once more in favor of the men in blue.

In the first senior football semi final on Sunday, table toppers Tyrone edged out last year’s intermediate champs, Armagh, while in the other semi final – in a repeat of last year’s final between NY Leitrim and NY Cork – champions Leitrim once more came out victors.

To fill us in on the weekends action and get perspectives from the respective winners, NY Dublin Treasurer, Jimmy Campbell talks about his side’s win, Tyrone Secretary, Seamus McNabb goes back over his club’s hard fought battle with Armagh, while Leitrim selector, Frankie Dwyer talks about his team’s second half performance against a good Cork team.

Later in the program we caught up with New York Ladies football team mentor and NY Games Development Officer, Simon Gillespie while waiting on a connector flight in Charlotte NC to La Guardia on his way home from New York’s drawn All Ireland Junior final in Croke Park on Sunday.
(Replay scheduled for Sunday Oct 9 @ 2.30 in Croke Park).
