Bleakley Platt & Schmidt Sponsors GAA Golf Outing and Supports Gaelic Heritage
Bleakley Platt & Schmidt LLP is proud to support our client, the Rockland Gaelic Athletic Association (the “GAA”), and to have served as a sponsor at their golf outing held on September 22, 2021, at the Blue Hill Golf Course in Pearl River, New York. The GAA is well-known in Rockland County, as well as internationally, for its tremendous work promoting Irish culture and heritage through the teaching and playing of traditional Gaelic games and hosting community events showcasing traditional Irish music, song, and dance. The GAA began operating in Rockland in 1972 and is home to over 850 playing members from ages 6 to adult and fields over 20 teams playing football, hurling, ladies’ football, and camogie. In 2017, the GAA opened its state-of-the-art clubhouse and pavilion next to its playing fields in Orangeburg, New York. In addition, the GAA and its members routinely give back to the local community and can be counted upon to support those in need through their various charitable endeavors.
