GAA International and World Games

Internationals have been played in the GAA since the first trips to New York in the early 20th Century. From 1924 to 1932 Ireland played the United States at the Tailteann Games. The 1947 All-Ireland Final was played in New York, and from the 1950s onwards, Internationals were played between the All-Ireland or National League Champions and New York or Australasia. More recently there has been Internationals between World Countries, such as Italy v France or Galicia v France.

International Rules matches can be found at the International Rules Page here:

The first International GAA played was the Tailteann Games of 1924-1932, and this was followed by the 1947 All-Ireland Football Final, which was held in New York.

In the 1950s the St. Brendan’s Cup finals were held between New York and the National Football League & National Hurling League winners. In the 1960s there was the World Championship Cup between New York & The All-Ireland Champions.

From thereon New York & London played in the All-Ireland Championship in Football and London, Warwickshire & Lancashire in the Christy Ring, Nicky Rackard & Lory Meaghar Cups.

The World Games is the latest development in the GAA’s World Programme: It is essentially a Provincial Championship for the Americas (New York, United States & Canada in Americas – Native Cup) & World Counties (Europe, Australasia, Asia & Middle East – Irish Cup) with development programmes in Russia, Africa, Caribbean, Latin America & Argentina.
