In our unique heatwave, there is a growing shortage of water nationally but, by heavens, there is no scarcity at all of midsummer craic and festivalia. A real lava of levity and laughter and pure joy at about every level.
New York look to take their first win ever in the Connacht Football Championship as they face off with Leitrim. IrishCentral will be live before the match talking to the supporters and taking a look at Gaelic Park.
The New York GAA is dearly hoping to celebrate its 90th anniversary of playing at Gaelic Park with a first-ever Connacht Championship victory over Leitrim on Sunday, but win or lose, the local association has big plans in the next year that will completely change the look of the venerable ground in the Bronx.
There will be two opportunities this coming weekend for the Irish to make history in America: the New York Gaelic football all-star team plays Leitrim in the opening round of the All-Ireland championship and Aidan O'Brien's horse Mendelssohn will race in the Kentucky Derby.
