10TH ANNUAL AL O'LEARY TOURNAMENT
Our tournament started as a friendly regional hurling tournament between three clubs from Akron, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis. With the support from the Sports Alliance of Greater Akron, our tournament has grown to be the Midwest’s largest Gaelic Games Tournament attracting hurling, camogie and Gaelic football clubs and collegiate teams from around the country. Our tournament not only provides a chance to compete, but a chance for the Celtic community to come together and promote Irish culture and heritage through sport.
All Hurling, Camogie and Gaelic Football clubs and collegiate teams are invited to participate. (Male/Female, Ages 15 and up)
Hurling Match format: Each match will consist of two 20 minute halves, 5-minute half-time, mix of 7's and 13's. Depending on team participation matches may be co-ed.
Gaelic Football Match format: TBD
