Charlotte GAA will hold its annual Connolly Cup Tournament on June 25th, 2016. The Charlotte James Connolly Club has been hosting the Connolly Cup since 2001, and in the past has seen teams from St. Barnabas in New York, the Cayman Islands, Philadelphia, Orlando, Tennessee, Charleston, DC, Baltimore and Atlanta compete.
The club is proud to host the largest tournament in the Southeast with teams competing in Ladies’ and Men’s Gaelic Football. Connolly Cup is pleased to pass on the love of Gaelic sports to a new generation of players by offering a youth coaching clinic in Gaelic football – all ages are welcome.
This year’s Connolly Cup will be held at CSA OrthoCarolina Sportsplex (13301 Dorman Road, Pineville, NC 28134).
Overall, the Connolly Cup will act as a huge stepping-stone for all clubs involved with highly competitive action as they look to build some momentum ahead of the North American County Board’s National Championships in Seattle.
Connolly’s Irish Pub (East 5th Street, Charlotte, NC 28202) will host the after-game festivities for players and fans alike. They are excited to welcome everyone for live music to entertain all on what should be a night not to be missed.
The event remembers those fondly who represented Charlotte James Connolly's with distinction and pride but who are sadly no longer with us.
Adrian Harkin, who passed suddenly four years ago, proudly wore the colours of James Stephens for many years in both hurling and football, as well as carrying his talents across the Atlantic to play for our own club here in Charlotte. This year, both clubs unite as one for an event which will no doubt be fiercely competitive.
Please join us on March 26th to witness one of Ireland's most successful club teams showcase their talents against our own as we look to kickstart the season, whilst remembering a truly great young man. #charlotteabu
