THE BRONX - The NFL season may be over, but Sundays are still reserved for “football” in the Bronx.

Thousands of people showed up at Gaelic Park to watch the New York Gaelic football team take on Mayo from Ireland.

The game was the first leg of the Connacht Senior championship.

Gaelic football is a mix between rugby, soccer and American football.

New York is one of just two teams in the league that do not hail from Ireland. The other team is from London.

This year, the New York team is celebrating its 100th year of existence.
