Toronto GAA Opening Day and Beyond!

posted 12 May 2012, 11:13 by Unknown user

It's the day that all teams have been waiting for since last September...Opening Sunday. Last year's winners will look to come out strong and defend their championship wins, while those teams that fell short will look to redeem themselves, feeding off of the bitter taste of disappointment that has been lingering for the last 8 months.


Sunday May 13th represents the beginning of the 2012 Toronto GAA season, and it also means the beginning of a very busy summer in the Toronto GAA community. Following the start of league play this weekend, many of our clubs will be heading to Montreal for a 9-a-side tournament. Others will head south of the border to Cleveland to build on what was a successful debut there last year.


The following weekend will see the cream of the crop arriving over from Ireland in the form of the Ladies GAA All-Star teams. With a day of All-Star festivities planned for May 26th in the Park, it promises to be a very exciting event. And what better way to finish it off than with a social night at the St. Lawrence Market that, as the hot ticket of the summer so far, has already sold out.


Finally, the Toronto GAA will be hitting the links mid-summer for their first annual golf tournament at Caledon Woods on July 10th. With foursomes quickly disappearing, it's highly recommended you get your registration completed ASAP to ensure your participation in what promises to be a great day for the community.


It will be a fantastic summer for the Toronto GAA, so come and help us kick it off this Sunday May 13th at Centennial Park at 12pm. There are loads of games planned for the day in what promises to be a great preview for the rest of the summer. 2011's champions have been crowned and forgotten about...let's see who's hungriest in 2012.
