FOREWORD FROM THE EDITOR GAELIC SPORTS WORLD PUBLISHER: It is said that you’re only young once. That the days of youth are cherished more than most others. Well, that might ring true in our main story in this Edition 5 of Gaelic Sports World, as we follow the adventure of a bunch of young New Yorkers to Ireland to compete in a National GAA Youth Tournament – Féile Peil na nÓg. The U14 Girls New York team travelled across to the West of Ireland to compete in the renowned Irish Youth tournament at the end of June. They were hosted by local GAA clubs and housed with local families and over the course of three days forged friendships and local support the young players are never likely to forget. They lifted a trophy in the end of it all and showed those on the Irish side of the Atlantic a thing or two about GAA prowess. The Boys U14’s didn’t do too badly either. London GAA tell a similar tale of unexpected joy. This edition also features a new monthly series on ‘Business and the GAA’ beginning with a certain US Country singer and a certain Irish stadium, and how the ensuing debacle even had the White House scurrying for cover.
