After a year where many of us were deprived of Gaelic games for some time, we’re happy to announce that the stage is set for the 2021 Junior D Hurling Championship in Philadelphia! Same as 2019, it will be a best-of-three series against the South Jersey Rebels. If the last championship in 2019 is any indication, this will be a series to remember! During that summer, most matches were decided by 1 point. Jersey Shore GAA won the championship two games to one, but South Jersey won a cup match that summer to even the clubs out as two wins apiece for the year.
The stakes are higher, however, as both clubs look to make their debut at the USGAA Finals this year! This year the Finals will take place on August 20-22 at the Irish Cultural Centre in Canton, Massachusetts. Clubs from all over the United States will travel to Canton to compete at every level from junior to senior. It’s sure to be an epic weekend of Irish sports, and everyone is looking forward to it.
That said, come check us out this summer at our championship matches! All matches will be played at Philadelphia GAA Limerick Field, located at 945 Longview Rd in Pottstown, PA on the following dates:
- Saturday, June 26 @ 12 PM
- Saturday, July 24 @ 12 PM
- Saturday, August 7 @ 2 PM
