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 in Hurling.
