We are the champions!

Ireland's Deputy Consul General Anna McGillicuddy with some trophies won by New York's Irish soccer clubs, among them the national titles picked up by the Lansdowne Bhoys in Milwaukee, Wisc., and Pontiac, Mich., in recent weeks.

The native Dubliner and Manchester United fan, and former New York University coach, is the latest to be inducted into the Irish-American Soccer Hall of Fame.
