The club is currently enjoying its 60th anniversary and to mark the occasion, the Ann Boyle memorial trophy match was contested as an in-house Roger Casements men’s match of youth verses experience. It was a hotly contested affair and a high scoring game with the joy of youth finally accomplishing bragging rights on the final whistle. Sean O Sullivan accepted the cup on behalf of his team. Thankfully this year, we were blessed with a dry day and the competitions were enjoyed by all involved. Five underage tournaments were held throughout the day with a shield and cup winner emerging from each group.

Congratulations to our Gaels ladies who made history on Saturday, winning their first Scottish League Title! The girls put in a convincing performance scoring 4-17 to 0-0 against Aberdeen. The ladies will face them again in the first round of the championship in two weeks’ time. Well done to the Scotland team on Sunday who put in a serious second-half performance against Warwickshire. Unfortunately, the lads came up short in the end, but well done to all who travelled down. Our U14 squad had a brilliant day out on Sunday going up against teams from Scotland and Dublin. Some of our youngsters also represented Scotland on our Féile teams, playing well against the Dublin sides. The future is bright for the Gaels! The club would like to thank everyone who came out to our Race Night this past Saturday, it was a huge success and we're now looking forward to our Family Fun Fair in Clydebank on the 19th of June from 12-4pm.

London GAA will run a Safeguarding Course on Saturday the 18th of June from 10am-1pm at Irish TV GAA Grounds, Ruislip.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so please contact the CDA Lloyd Colfer 078 72600073 if you are interested. Finally, under the new guidelines from the Provincial Council of Britain GAA, anyone involved with teams that have players under the age of 18 must be DBS certified, complete a Coaching Course and also, a Safeguarding Course so it is imperative that we get as many people as possible to attend these Courses over the coming weeks and months.
