About the Event
Celebrating the past is key to our future. Remembering those who defined our games, our memories, and our passions, is just part of what makes the GAA so unique.
Choosing the class of 2022 was quite the task for our selection committee but we feel our four award winners are the worthiest of Hall of Fame recipients. Their achievements, their legacies deserve to be celebrated.

Lifetime Achievement Award
Forty five years ago, near Wall St., Mike Carty opened the first Rosie O’Grady’s restaurant with his business partner Austin Delaney. It moved to a second location three years later, in 1975, also in the Wall Street area in Manhattan. In 1977, the third Rosie O’Grady’s opened in Midtown Manhattan, and since 1981, it has been in its current location, 800 Seventh Ave., in the Broadway Theater District of Midtown Manhattan.
Since Mike arrived in New York he has been a long time support of the GAA and especially the New York GAA. Mike has been part of numerous committees and an integral part of the development committee and key in getting this redevelopment project in motion.
The New York GAA are so proud to be able to honoree Mike at the Hall of Fame event for his years of contribution and indeed everything he is still doing today on our behalf. We thank Mike for his tireless work and dedication to making our dream a reality at Gaelic Park.

We are developing a much-needed community hub in Gaelic Park, It will be a facility we will be proud to call home, one that will serve the needs of the GAA in New York for generations to come.
Join in with us as we bring the GAA family together for a night full of fun, nostalgia, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Gaelic Park - Redevelopment
Take a look at the latest rendering for the proposed facility at Gaelic Park in the Bronx. A State-of-the-art facility that is needed to further grow and develop our games in New York.
The need for this facility is an everyday burden on NYGAA. From our clubs to our members we need a facility to call home.
Our players are currently performing where the conditions don't equal their abilities. These players deserve more!
Gaelic Park has a special place in the hearts of all those who have played there but also to the local people in the Bronx, NY. The project is long over due.
It is not possible to host an event like this without helping hands. We have several sponsors who volunteer to help us physically and financially to make things happen.
