The annual Montreal May Tournament was held Saturday May 19th. In all, 11 teams participated with teams traveling from Toronto, Quebec City and Ottawa - along with a guest team from the Montreal Australian Rules club.
The tournament was won by Ottawa Gaels who won all of their matches and played to a very high standard throughout the day. Runners-up were St Mike's from Toronto who fought bravely but went down on a scoreline of 2-6 to 0-8. The scorching weather contributed to some excellent football being played on the day, with all of the matches being played in a great spirit. The Montreal Shamrocks had two teams participating - with the A team narrowly missing out on qualifying for the knockout stages. A full break down of the results is available on our website here http://www.montrealgaa.com/NewsItem.aspx?ID=37
Montreal Shamrocks would like to thank all of the teams for helping to make the tournament a great success. Thanks to all of the volunteers who helped on the day. Special thanks to the Montreal Irish Rugby club for providing the pitch and dressing-room facilities, as well as Hurley's Irish Pub for hosting the after-party.
We look forward to hosting another competitive tournament next year!
