British GAA: Latest club notes, fixtures and results



Tara Camogie are travelling over to the World Games in Dublin this week. The opening ceremony kicked off on Sunday in Croke Park where Sheila Fernandes and Helen Murphy were flying the flag for Tara. There are 13 girls heading over on the Tara squad. Sheila Fernandes, Claire Ryan, Gen Creane, Helen Murphy, Joanne Hamilton, Fiona Morrissey, Lisa Creamer, Lucy Hawkes. Mary Fenton, Sarah McNicholl, Michaela Kilkenny, Lauren O’Sullivan and Aisling Irish. Tara kicked off their group games on Tuesday and are in one of the tougher groups with Europe, North America and old rivals Croydon. If successful, they will be playing the cup final on Friday. Tara will be hoping to mirror their success in the 2013 Gathering in Croke Park when they walked away champions. We are very excited to take part in the GAA World Games and want to thank all the organisers as well as wishing all participating teams a fun and safe week, Tara Abu!


Our Footballers were the only team in action last weekend and they recorded a hard fought victory in the championship against a physical Shalloe Pearse team. An early goal put the Pearses in the driving seat but McCurtains fought back well and led at the break by five points thanks to a well-taken goal by Gavin O'Flatherty. The lads would not relinquish the lead in a low-scoring second-half to run out winners by four. Good luck to the Camogs currently at the GAA World Games taking place in UCD and Croke Park. We wish them the best of luck. Next weekend our hurlers will be the only team in action as they play Kilburn Gaels B in Goodmayes on Saturday.


Tir Chonaill Gaels’ defence of the London SFC begins this weekend at Greenford when we face the Round Towers. We wish Lloyd and all the boys the best in this year’s campaign. It will be the second meeting of the two teams in just over a week as the Gaels ran out 0-15 to 1-9 winners against the Towers at Mitcham last weekend to reach the league final and the chance to make it three league titles in a row. The Juniors had another busy week but unfortunately came out on the wrong end of defeats against St Kiernan’s in the Homegrown Competition (1-11 to 2-6) mid-week and to the Tara’s in the Championship at Greenford (2-7 to 2-6). Next game is against Naomh Padraig at Greenford at 1pm on Sunday, August 14, in the league. Congratulations to former player Joe Feeney on his recent marriage. We wish him and his wife happiness and good health for their future together. Good luck to Lloyd, Patrick and their band of merry man as they head for Dublin this week to take part in the GAA World Games. We hope all the boys have a successful trip back to the old country and have a great tournament.


St Brendans’ Championship hopes suffered a blow on Sunday afternoon in Greenford, when they were beaten by St. Joseph's (1-13 to 0-7). Training takes place on every Tuesday and Thursday at Green School, Busch Corner, London Road, Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 5BB, just beside Syon Station.


The club would like to extend its sympathies to John Keane on the recent passing of his father Frank. The senior team drew their first game of the championship against a very committed Fulham Irish team. A final free from Steven Lambert ensured a share of the spoils in a tense encounter. Our Intermediate team had a thrilling victory in the championship on Wednesday night by beating St Declans by a single point. However, they shipped a heavy defeat on Saturday to a very strong Brothers Pearse team in the league. Well done to all who participated in, sold tickets, donated money or gave support to the Cathal Cycle at the end of last month. The whole affair was a resounding success and for those people lucky enough to have been in attendance in Gort on July 31, the welcome and atmosphere in town was something memorable. The club would like to wish Michael O'Dwyer all the best for his wedding this Saturday. We hope that Michael and Caroline have a long and happy marriage.


It was a brilliant week on the pitch for the Gaels with both Men's teams recording wins against Glasgow rivals Tir Conaill Harps. On the ladies’ side, the defending Scottish Junior Champions won well against last year's finalists Dalriada in Aberdeen. This week the Senior Men take on Dalriada in Aberdeen while the Junior men will take on last year's Junior Champions, Sands MacSwineys in Coatbridge. The club will also hold its annual County Colours Night on the 27th August in Malones Bar in Glasgow. All are very welcome. Please check our Facebook page for further detail.


It was a great honour for two teams of thirty children both boys and girls from various clubs in London to represent the U12's London Youths in an 11-minute exhibition match in Croke Park last Saturday at the half-time interval of the Dublin v Donegal All-Ireland SFC quarter-final. The young Gaels loved the experience of being able to showcase their abilities and skills in our National Stadium while representing London GAA. A very important day for the children playing in the footsteps of many legends before them to create an array of lifetime lasting memories for themselves.
