Boston/New York pubs for GAA coverage

(Oldest Posts First)

Im sure this has been asked before lads but do any of ye know where there's a pub that shows live GAA in either of the above two cities, more likely Boston. I know I can stream it if needs be but it can be inconsistent and would like to watch it in a pub all the same.

The Banshee in dorchester is the best place in boston to watch GAA, the owner ray is a legend NY depends where you are really - in the city youll have loads of choice try clancys on 2nd Ave at 51st & 52nd St, or maybe the playwright or the oldcastle

Is Setanta the only place you can stream the games from outside Ireland? Do RTE stream live games?

In Boston, McGanns in the North End show the matches, or at least they used do when I was over there. Its pretty easy to get to, its just opposite North Station. If you're out in the Somerville/Brighton areas, I think the Green Briar pub in Brighton shows the GAA as well.

Premium Sports owns the GAA broadcast rights in the US. You can find venues showing games (there is generally a $20 cover charge) here: I don't know about NY but most of my family lives around Boston and they all like the Green Briar in Brighton.

Thanks for the replies. Hit the Banshee in the end as it was the closest to where I was. Good spot. There was a $20 cover charge as predicted which I didn't mind paying but I think it irked a few of the locals who are down every Sunday. If we learn how to defend we could go a far bit. In saying that Offaly were poor.
