120 teams will participate from Junior D up to the Senior Grade in all codes mens and ladies football, hurling, and camogie in whats the largest ever USGAA Finals in the history of the competition.

USGAA is comprised of 10 divisions with more than half running out championship competitions from May to August to battle it out for a spot in the USGAA Finals in a different location each year.

USGAA Finals are a weekend where divisions and clubs get to showcase all of the development that they have been working on throughout the year, says USGAA Chairperson, Bernie Connaughton.

With over 120 teams traveling to finals this year, it is a credit to what the divisions have been doing to develop Gaelic Games in the US.

The USGAA looks forward to showcasing that we are a very strong international unit within the GAA that has competitive games year after year and as we continue to grow our homegrown contingency to over 50, we will continue to cultivate Irish culture within the US, while getting stronger and growing our presence internationally.

USGAA is comprised of 10 divisions with more than half running out championship competitions from May to August.

In advance of the National Finals, USGAA have announced the naming of a number of National Championships after individuals who contributed to Gaelic Games in the US.

While Gaelic Games in the US has grown exponentially in the last 15 years, without the dedication and work of our past members, the foundations for that growth would not have existed," says Connaughton.

As we continue to develop and expand as an organization, it is only fitting that we recognize the importance of their contributions to our success.

The honorees for 2022 are:

Senior Ladies Championship: Mickey Cavanaugh

Mickey Cavanaugh hailed from County Mayo and emigrated to Philadelphia in the 1950's, where he managed a number of bar-restaurants in the Philadelphia area with his brothers.

In 1959, the historic first meeting of the North American County Board took place in one of these bars. Along with others such as John O'Brien, Fr. Peter Quinn, Dan O'Kennedy, John Hehir and Jack Courtney, Mickey Cavanaugh was part of the formation of the first Committee of the NACB.

Initially working behind the scenes, and later as NACB Chairperson, Mickey led the drive to get all GAA clubs to join the NACB, overcoming many obstacles for the fledgling national GAA organization.

After serving as NACB Chair from 1960-63, and later as Honorary President, Mickey remained active in the Philadelphia GAA scene until he returned to his native Mayo, where he operated a hotel for many years.

Senior Camogie Championship: William Bill Garvey

Originally from Castlebar, Co. Mayo, William Bill Garvey emigrated to the US in 1920 and became instrumental in the early growth of the North American Board.

After settling with his wife Margaret in Mendon, New York, Bill was a founding-member of the local Rochester Harps club in 1950. As its first Club President, Bill became a leading figure in the Midwest GAA league throughout the 1950s.

In 1959, Bill became the first Treasurer of the newly formed North American Board, a role he held with distinction from 1959-1962.

Intermediate Hurling Championship: Sean Gannon

Sean Gannon was born in Acres, Newport, County Mayo, where his love of Gaelic football was born. There he played for his local club, Burrishoole, featuring on the Mayo Minor team before emigrating to the U.S. in 1962.

Once in Cleveland, he joined the St. Pat's football club, who he assisted in winning 4 North American Senior Championships in 5 years, a record at that time. In addition to playing for the St. Pats team, Sean was instrumental in spreading his passion for Gaelic Football to many young people, including his son, Sean, and three daughters who were on the first Cleveland Ladies' team, Elizabeth, Siobhan and Mary. Numerous nephews, nieces, and grandchildren have found a passion for this game because of Sean.

Away from the meeting-rooms, Sean devoted countless weekends to cutting down trees and removing stumps, in order to secure the future of Gaelic Games in the Cleveland community, in the form of a pitch at the West Side Irish American Club. Prior to the advent of live-streaming of GAA games, Sean worked with Satellite Broadcasters to bring GAA games to the Irish Community in Cleveland.

In addition to being long time Chairman of St Pats, and serving on the Midwest Board, Sean was Chairman of the North American Board in the 80s and early 2000s, while also holding the position of Registrar in the 1990s.

Junior C Football Championship: Stephen and Jason Breen

Despite passing from chronic birth-related illnesses at the ages of 17-years and 26-years young, Stephen and Jason Breen were well known in the Philadelphia and North American GAA community.
