Well done to all the London Boys and Girls who took part in the Feile in Kerry at the weekend. As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations Tara Camogie Club travelled to Kildangan, Tipperary, to play in the Maura Hackett Munster Camogie 7s tournament. There were eight teams taking part in the tournament split into 2 groups. Tara’s won their first two games against Borrisoleigh of Tipperary and Clonea of Waterford but lost the final group game against Na Piarsaigh of Cork who were very strong. However, we still qualified for the cup semi-final against our hosts Kildangan and the holders. The games were played on a junior sized pitch at 7-a-side using rolling subs. We ran out of legs towards the end of the second-half and the hosts marched on to the final. The final was a great game of camogie, end-to-end, tough and very competitive. Na Piarsaigh were the eventual winners but only after playing extra-time. Portroe of Tipperary won the Shield. The Tara group were Anna Nyhan, Lisa Creamer, Clare Kileen, Emma Dunlea, Fiona O’Grady, Joni Traynor, Gen Creane, Sarah McNicholls, Orlaith Jennings, with Alan Smyth and Tom Healy. We would like to thank Kildangan Camogie Club for the invitation, the Chairman John Foley and all the girls that made us feel so welcome.


Congratulations to the Scotland team who fought until the final whistle to draw with Lancashire after extra-time. Replay of the semi-final of the British Inter-County Championships will be this Saturday, July 2. Best of luck to the lads and management team! The previously fixed Junior Championship match for this Saturday versus Tir Conaill Harps will be rescheduled to avoid the clash. We'd also like to congratulate our juvenile players selected for the Féile who had a brilliant time this weekend in Kerry. The club would also like to congratulate club member Paul Ferris and his wife Briege on the birth of their baby boy Odhrán this week.


Last weekend the North London U14 Boys travelled to Kerry for the Feile competition and were hosted by the Beaufort Club. Our players, management and supporters were superb ambassadors for North London. The boys produced some outstanding displays in getting to the Division 4 final before going down 1-8 to 0-4 against Eire Og Greystone from Wicklow. The boys were very upset at losing the final but they can be very proud of their performances throughout the weekend and they were great ambassadors for North London GAA. The hospitality from the Beaufort GAA club was outstanding and everyone in the London party will take life long memories and have make friends for life from a very special weekend. London GAA would like to thank this excellent group of young men for representing North London in such brilliant fashion. Thanks also to the management team and a sincere thank you must go to all those parents and families who made the journey to Kerry. Meanwhile, Kilburn Gaels will host a Hurling Blitz on Sunday, July 3, starting at 1pm at Gladstone Park for the U8's/10's and U13's and Parnell's will host the annual Conrad Ryan Football Tournament for U6/8/10/12's boys and girls on Saturday, July 2, at Northwick Park.
