Another fantastic international schedule of Gaelic sports action took place last weekend this time Thameside London was the location.
At Ruislip we had the much anticipated replay of the London Intermediate Football Championship Final as well as two very eagerly awaited senior hurling championship semi finals.

Two weeks ago, Round Towers and Heston Gaels had battled to a thrilling draw in the intermediate final and last Saturday in the replay we saw ‘Towers just about getting over the line against a game Heston who feature mostly English players.
Round Towers fell at the same point last year and will be delighted to be back in the senior ranks once more.

Meanwhile in the first of the two London senior hurling semi finals on Sunday, Robert Emmetts and 2010 champions, Kilburn Gaels, produced the game of the year.

A goal midway through the second half turned this one in favor of ‘Emmets, while in the other semi after a brilliant start from Sean Treacys, last year’s runners-up, St Gabriels went on for a comfortable victory.

Here to tell us about that game and all the rest of the action from Ruislip, as well as look ahead to next Sunday’s senior football semi finals, is London GAA Chairman, Tommy Harrell.
