Read more about last year’s event….

The inaugural All Syndey GAA Blitz took place on Sunday Feb 16th at the NSWGAA grounds in Ingleburn and despite the Irish-like weather the event was a great success.

Over 600 players from Sydney’s GAA Clubs came together with 22 teams across Men’s and Ladies football, Hurling and Camogie competing for the prized first silverware of the NSWGAA season.

In total 30 games were played across two pitches, ensuring each team got at least 2 games over the course of the day.

The Hurling and Ladies Football finals went right down to the wire with hosts Michael Cusacks GAC narrowly losing out to Central Coast (Hurling) and McAnallens (Ladies Football) by 1 point.

McAnallens also overcame Cusacks in the Men’s Football final, while in the Camogie Central Coast also proved too strong for the McAnallen’s girls.

Players of the Day (as pictured below) were:
Ciara Storey, Coast GAA (Camogie)
Darren Kehoe, Coast GAA (Hurling)
Damian McDermott, MacAnallens (Men’s Football)
Niamh Hegarty, MacAnallens (Ladies Football)
