Seniors: Paul and the boys returned to McGovern Park with fire in their bellies on Sunday and took on the south west London team with a passion like no other. There were moments in the second half which were exhausting for spectators as the scoreboard kept bouncing horizontally keeping both teams very close to what could have been another draw. The last minutes of the game the Gaels stood up with a brilliant performance from the full forward line, to bring the 4th and final minute of injury time to a score of TCG 0-15 to Fulham Irish 0-13.

An Tearmainn

Our U21s bowed out of the A Championship at the first hurdle being defeated by a stronger and hungrier Naomh Mhuire team at the Burn Road with a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-11.

Our Minor Board season for 2018 came to a close last week. On Monday last our U-13 boys made their exit when they were defeated by a physically stronger Aodh Rua Ballyshannon team.

On Saturday our U16 boys were defeated by the narrowest of margins, and after extra time by Newtownbutler from Fermanagh in the Paul Mc Girr U16 tournament in Dromond in Tyrone. With only 16 of the panel of 23 available for selection it was always going to be difficult yet our boys showed great courage to earn extra time with two late late scores from Aaron Reid and Jack Alcorn in the dying seconds of normal time. While the boys were disappointed not to progress they will look back on 2018 with great pride with a clean sweep of league and Championship making it a year to remember thanks to Trevor Dan Ricky Daireann and Padraig for all their work with these boys over the last 9 or 10 months.
