Rockland Gaelic Athletics Gearing Up

The Rockland County Gaelic Athletic Association held its second day of practices Sunday at Pearl River Middle School.

The Rockland County Gaelic Athletic Association recently began indoor workouts at Pearl River Middle School.

They began with the under-8 boys and girls, under-10 boys and girls and under 12 boys for Gaelic football, with the under-12 girls, under-14 girls, under-18 girls and ladies starting once they start holding workouts in the Pearl River High School gym this Sunday.

The Rockland GAA organizes Gaelic football and Hurling for boys and girls ages five and up, though Glynn said they are limited to football until they start holding outdoor workouts.

"Hurling and camobie, you can't toss those things inside," Glynn said.

Tony Donnelly recently took over as chairman of the GAA, taking the place of Emmett Woods.

"Emmett was a fantastic chairman. He did a lot for the club in five years," Glynn said. "Tony is one of hte greatest guys I've ever met. He's really dedicated to the club. He'll do whatever it takes."

The GAA holds four Sunday indoor workout sessions, the last of which is set for March 24, with a week off for St. Patrick's Day. The GAA will have a group marching in the Rockland County St. Patrick's Day Parade in Pearl River.
