This Labor Day weekend Penny Pack Riverview Fields will play host to the North American Gaelic Athletic Association’s 2012 County Championships. GAA teams from North America, New York and Canada will enjoy hurling, Gaelic football and camogie matches.

As the PhillyGAA.net site says “George Washington led his troops across this same Delaware River into battle with the Hessians in 1776. Now 236 years later, we will see captains leading their respective clubs into action in pursuit of the North American medals and trophies.”

There will be five fields of non-stop action including the ladies participating in camogie and Gaelic football, and the men participating in Gaelic football and hurling.

From the early hours of the morning to early evening, the playoff brackets will wind down to the finals, which take place on Sunday. Shield competitions will also be held in select competitions for clubs which are eliminated.
