- Submitted by

Irish American Hockey Association year in review video:

The IAIHA welcomed a slew of hockey players from Ireland over the this past year including the IIHA Saints from all parts of Ireland as well as the Celtic Clovers Senior Hockey team for the 10th annual Irish American Ice Hockey Classic: Boston.

Many thanks to State Representative Nick Collins of South Boston who opened up the State House with a catered luncheon and recognition awards in the House Chambers for the youth hockey players from Ireland and made their trip to Boston so special.

As always, special thanks to Bob Sweeney from the Boston Bruins Foundation for being such a great ambassador for Irish American Hockey both here in the US as well as overseas.

Special thanks to all of the teams and players highlighted in this video as every Irish American Ice Hockey Classic seems to get better and better each year.

Irish American Hockey also welcomed youth hockey players from Ireland over the summer to attend the Hillside Hockey Boarding Camp for players aged 10-15 in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Special thanks to Hillside Junior Boarding School and their hockey staff as well as to the Irish American host billet families for making memories of a lifetime for Irish Hockey players.

A big Irish American Hockey thanks to the incredible staff at the newly renovated Murphy rink in South Boston including legendary hockey guru Tommy McGrath, Massachusetts Hockey Hall of Fame member Teddy Cunniff, John “Pic” Picariello and the entire crew at the Murphy.

Lastly, on a somber note, All Irish Hockey Hearts were broken with the passing of one of the ORIGINAL FOUNDERS of Irish American Hockey Association: Dean Stock who succumbed to horrors of ALS:

One of the very best to ever Lace em up; we Love You Dean
