New York’s GAA dilemma…

Interesting times for New York’s successful hurlers. So successfull that they’ve made it to the Ulster final in Belfast on 4th June. Except, the New York board are requesting a postponement and change of venue since up to half the playing panel, were they to travel outside the US, would possibly not be allowed back in again. Several Irish Americans are already charged with encouraging New York Gaelic football player, Shane Lawlor, aka Shane Russell, to come into the US illegally.
