About The GAA World Championship Cup

New York played the All-Ireland Champions at Hurling and Gaelic Football for the World Championship Cup from 1967 to 1969. They now play in the All-Ireland Championship itself, and the other World Counties (United States, Canada, Australasia, Europe, Asia and Middle East) play in the GAA World Games, which is like a Provincial Championship for the World Counties.
