Northeast Division GAA Board

The Northeast Divisional Board of the North American GAA is the governing body of hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football in the Boston metropolitan area of Massachusetts. It is affiliated to the North American Board, and is the largest division in the NACB. Its headquarters are at the Irish Cultural Center (ICC) in Canton, MA, a facility that has hosted many major tournaments over the years such as the North American Playoffs, the Martin Donnelly Interprovincial Championship, the Continental Youth Championship, and many more.[1]

Area

The Irish Cultural Center covers a tract of land that includes two parking lots, four Gaelic Football/Hurling fields, a club house with a pub, snack bar, events hall, and meeting room, and a children's playground. The largest of the four fields is used for minor league football/hurling games for teams in the local area. A bridge used for entering the facility is also used for marriages.

Recent history

In 2006 it hosted the inaugural Owen Treacy Cup, a game between a combined North American team, and the winners of the Tommy Murphy Cup (in this case, Louth). On the same weekend it hosted the Martin Donnelly cup, and the first ever instance of the Ulster Hurling final being played outside of Ireland, (in this case New York and Antrim competed). In 2007 the ICC hosted the Continental Youth Championship, a tournament in with U-10,U-12,U-14,U16 and U-18 Gaelic Football/Hurling teams from New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago competing.
