The Maryland AOH with IRWM hosted an event to honor the Baltimore City Bohemians Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Teams on July 30. Bob Waldron, member of AOH 5, as well as Dan and Tommy Layden, Jay Linahan and Michael Mellett and many other Maryland Hibernians from the region brought generations of family members. Other AOH representatives attending were Virginia Pat Cady Division’s, Brendan Cooney and James Coleman of St. Brendan Division 3 –Towson.
Many Irish born GAA players attended with families and children for the first time and began new friendships with our Hibernian brothers. Hibernian brothers and Ladies and guests also took in a wonderful historical presentation on the GAA’s founding and the history of Irish sports. Many from the region attended as well.
