Thomas McCurtains GAA Club Notes.

The Club hosted their Annual Golf Day in The Priors Golf Course, Stapleford Abbots on Saturday. As always it was a successful day with plenty of great golf played and dinner provided afterwards in O'Gradys. The overall winner on the day was Timothy O'Regan. Congratulations to Timothy and well done to all involved.

Good luck to Gavin O'Flatherty, Richard Ellis, Philip Murphy, Kevin Delahunty and Mark Gilsenen who are on the London Junior County Panel who play Lancashire this Sunday in the Provincial Junior Football Championship Final in Birmingham.

Congratulations to Tom Grannell who was part of the South London team who won Division 3 U-14 Feile All Ireland.
