British GAA: Latest club notes, fixtures and results



Dulwich played against St Clarets in the final round of the Championship group stages on Saturday last at Tottenhall Sports Ground. With both teams assured of places in the semi-finals, this game was to decide who finished top. The game was played in extremely windy conditions and Dulwich were slow to make use of the wind advantage in the initial stages. Once Dulwich had reached parity with Clarets at five points apiece, they were dealt with a double blow just before the interval with two quick-fire goals. Half-time: St Clarets 2-5 Dulwich Harps 0-5. Dulwich began the second half brightly but their opponents used the wind advantage to much greater effect running out winners on a scoreline of 4-10 to 0-07. Following this result and those elsewhere, Dulwich have been drawn in the semi-finals against Tara. This fixture is scheduled to take place on the weekend of September 10-11th. Further information will be published once available. Know Your Sport 2016 – the Olympics are now over and we are now 14 questions into the competition.

This past weekend, the Gaels’ Junior Men were successful in their bid to reach their first ever county final with a win over Dunedin Connollys, final score 0-9 to 0-8.

Our intermediates made the not inconsiderable journey to Goodmayes on Wednesday night to play McCurtains in the latest round of the championship. Despite losing the game, the team again came away with credit after a wholehearted display. On Sunday, after a disastrous opening half, a very weakened senior team went down by only four points to the Sean Treacys. The team made every effort in the second-half to claw back a big deficit. The club are now perilously close to relegation and every effort must now be made to prevent this happening. It is unrealistic for players to expect any other outcome, other than defeat, when so few are attending training for so long. Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday in Highgate at 7:30pm. The club would very much like to wish club chairman Roddy Walsh and his fiancé Orna Coleman all the best on their wedding day this Friday 26th in Cork. We hope they have a great day and a long and happy life together.

Tara travelled to the World Games last week in good spirits hoping to compete against the world's best. However, Tara faced a familiar foe in their opening game against Croydon. A competitive and hard fought game was eventually won by Tara. A comprehensive win against North America (all American-born) followed later in the day. A face off against Europe ensued for the top spot of the group. Tara were defeated and although momentarily downbeat, they were still in the cup competition on the Wednesday. Tara entered their first game against the Middle East knowing a win would put them in the mix for the top two places and a date in Croke Park in Friday's final. A fantastic fight back from five points down at half time showed Tara's true spirit and they ran out four-point winners. A rematch with Europe was next up and this time Tara showed they had learned the lessons of their defeat on Tuesday and started strongly. Europe continued to threaten but a saved penalty and a mammoth effort saw Tara run out 2 point winners. A good win against Canada saw Tara successfully qualify for the final on Friday. The last game of the day was a warm-up match against Australasia and they ran out winner with a big score and plenty for Tara to think about for the final. Croke Park offered apt reward for Tara's efforts over the week and the weather reflected this as it was perfect for hurling. Tara knew the job of contained the Australasian forwards would be tough and they got off to a blistering start. Slowly Tara came into the game and scores followed from Sarah MacNicholl, Clare Ryan and a great point from the sideline by Joanne Hamilton. The second half was more evenly fought with more scores from Fiona Morrissey who eventually finished the game with 1-5. Tara played with pride and fight and never gave up. A memorable day for the club as Helen Murphy led the team up the famous Hogan Stand steps to collect the runner up medals. A special mention to Sarah MacNicholl voted Tara's Etihad All Star for the games.
