Note: Agg = Aggregate score over two matches.


In the first GAA Hurling World Championship Cup in 1967, held in Gaelic Park, New York, between the hosts and the All Ireland Champions, Kilkenny, it was the Cats who were victorious, by 38-22 on aggregate over a two-game series. The following year New York travelled to Wexford, losing to the Yellowbellies in a single game series, and then in 1969 the New York team again hosted a two-game series with the All Ireland Champions, this time defeating Kilkenny on aggregate.

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.
