Following a meeting with the bus company this afternoon the following has been decided:


Buses will run strictly according to schedule times as indicated at your hotels. There will be no deviation from this. Buses from the Hotels will drop off underneath the Triboro bridge (between Field 70 and 71) . This will be the only drop off area. This will also be the only pick up area for return trips to the hotel. 3 shuttle buses will run from the parking lot of Icahn stadium. One shuttle will run a continuous loop between the fields.


Please directly relay this information to the coaches. 


Many thanks,

CYC Parade Information
by simongillespie posted 04/30/2014

New York Host to CYC 2014

Join our Celebration Parade on July23rd 2014

2014 marks the 100 year anniversary of the founding of Gaelic Games in New York


The 10th year anniversary of the CYC competition.


New York is Celebrating! This year, the New York Minor Board has put forth a proposal to move the CYC parade from New York City Randal’s Island to Mc Lean Ave, Yonkers- a community so well preserved in the form of culture, food, sports and Irish community spirit.

In New York, we believe a good parade is one that will highlight volunteer organizations and charities. For this reason, we will involve the key elements that make up our community including the local church, Aisling Irish center, our cultural element in Scor and the various businesses and organizations that make this area a community known the world over for its quintessential Irishness.

 We will pre-register players to participate in the CYC tournament in the local parish hall from 3pm -6pm, only a block from where the parade will commence. We are also looking to use St Barnabas High School Auditorium for an evening of Irish Music, Dance and plenty of Craic that will be organized by our local Scor Committee.

It’s truly a reason to celebrate our heritage and the huge development of GAA in the USA – something we should all be proud of.

What are we asking?

The parade, (already locally labelled as the”The Emerald Mile”) is hoping this event will attract all Irish communities across the United States to mark the occasion and celebrate in true Irish style.

New York is reaching out to all teams travelling from all over the United States to attend “The Emerald Mile” and proudly hold their Banner high on the day. We appreciate the inconvenience of travelling a little earlier than normal so we have put together a few sweeteners on the day: All families who participate in the parade carrying or walking behind their club banner has a chance to win the whole package


  • $50 gift card From Neil’s
  • A premier parking pass in Randal’s Island for whole weekend
  • Free entry to event on Saturday
  • CHANCE TO WIN Free Yankee tickets for Family of Four on Friday night.


We hope to see you on July 23rd Mc Lean Ave Yonkers.
