North America Chicago won the GAA World Games Hurling Native Cup in 2016, defeating New York in the Final. The GAA World Games are the Provincial Championship for Counties outside Ireland and Britain, and the Native Cup is for Counties which are represented by homegrown players rather than Irish-born players.(i.e. United States, Canada, New York are represented by players born in North America rather than Ireland).
About GAA World Games
There are two GAA Provincial Councils outside Ireland: the World Games comprising New York, United States, Canada, Australasia, Europe, Asia and Middle East GAA Councils; and the Britain GAA Provincial Council comprising the GAA Counties of London, Warwickshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire, Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire and Scotland. Both have County Championships and Provincial Championships in Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie and Ladies Gaelic, although not all as yet have Hurling, Camogie or Ladies Gaelic Football Championships. There are also Clubs in Argentina, Moscow, the Cayman Islands and South Africa.
The GAA World Games are the Provincial Championship for Counties outside Ireland and Britain, and the Native Cup is for Counties which are represented by homegrown players rather than Irish-born players who play for the Irish Cup. The Native Cup works like a Provincial Championship for the Americas and the Irish Cup the Provincial Championship for the Orient (i.e. United States, Canada, New York are represented by players born in North America rather than Ireland, and Australasia, Europe, Asia and the Middle East are mostly represented by Irish-born players).
