The Gaelic Park Sports Centre (Irish: Páirc na nGael), often abbreviated Gaelic Park, is a multi-purpose outdoor athletics facility, located at West 240th Street and Broadway in Riverdale, Bronx, in the U.S. state of New York. Since 1926 the grounds has been used as the venue for Gaelic sports in New York, and since its purchase by Manhattan College in 1991 it has hosted numerous American college athletic events. Located just west of Broadway and south and west of Van Cortlandt Park in the northernmost part of the Bronx just south of the city border with Westchester, Gaelic Park was purchased in 1926 by the Gaelic Athletic Association of Greater New York. It has been given a few different names over time including Innisfail Park, but since the 1950s it has gone by its current name, Gaelic Park, a reflection of the park's decidedly Irish flavor. The park includes a playing field and dance hall. In addition to hurling and football matches, a number of other sporting events take place at Gaelic Park. There are also concerts and dances that feature Irish music both old and new. Beginning with "Summer '69" and continuing into the early 1970s, rock concerts were also held there, including the Association, Beach Boys, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, Eagles, Pete Seeger, Rascals, Irish Rovers, Four Tops, Grateful Dead, Chicago, Edgar Winter, Johnny Winter, Jefferson Airplane,Black Oak Arkansas Allman Brothers Band, Ten Years After, Yes, ELP, Mountain, Humble Pie and Deep Purple.

Gaelic Park, New York City Reviews - Write a Review

  • Suffolk County Hibernians GAA based in Hampton Bays get to play their 2017 championship game here on July 25th. Great excitement among the team for the opportunity to play in such an iconic stadium, home away from home for many of the Irish players.

  • Went to a benefit here and had a blast. Nice place and nice people

  • Fantastic sports complex with its own sports club and bar attached. I wish we could play more Aussie/international rules matches here.

  • Great spot to watch sports. Get to a MC Lax game.

  • Loads of memories growing up playing Gaelic Football and watching hurling matches. Was back with the family for a visit and thoroughly enjoyed the day....Everyone of Irish Heritage in NY should stop in to watch a game at least once
