Tir Chonaill Gaels took this year’s London Div 1 Senior Football League title when scoring a five point win over St Kiernans on Saturday in Greenford. The Gaels, who had won this competition and the London championship last year, would have been favourites going into the game, however in a close affair they held a slender one point lead at the break in a half which had seen St Kiernans reduced to 14 men. Things evened out in the second half when Tir Chonaill had one of theirs sent to the line but despite this they went on to dominate the last quarter to run out 0-10 to 0-05 victors.
In the Ryan Cup Hurling Final at the same venue on Sunday, all conquering Kilburn Gaels pulled off a treble when a fitter side proved too much for St Gabriels by 2-12 (18) to 1-09 (12).  Here to tell us about those games is London GAA Chairman, Tommy Harrell.
