Super Saturday: Two GAA matches to watch in Britain this weekend

THIS Saturday, June 17 sees two huge GAA matches in Britain as one competition starts and another is decided. 

It’s a 12noon throw-in for Paddy Bowles’ London Ladies who get their TG4 All-Ireland Junior Football Championship underway at McGovern Park against Derry.

This is London’s only home fixture in Group B and one that’s hugely significant ahead of road trips against Fermanagh and Carlow.

Attentions turn to Pairc na hÉireann in Birmingham later that afternoon where it’s a 4pm throw-in for the much-anticipated All-Britain Football Championship Final between Warwickshire and London.

It’s the third successive final between the two counties.

Charlie O’Donnell’s Warwickshire lifted Sam Maguire in 2021 before Stephen Lynch’s London turned the tide last year – what’s more, the winners will face New York in next month’s All-Ireland Junior Championship Semi-finals while the losers take on defending champions Kilkenny in the other match.

With interest already building, supporters from both counties are encouraged to attend as early as possible – expect plenty of atmosphere and drama as the other Sam Maguire Cup goes up for grabs.
