Tara GFC 3rd annual J Ffrench girls tournament
All roads led to Greenford last Saturday in spite of the rain as Tara GFC were hosts to their 3rd Annual J Ffrench Girls 9's Tournament. Clubs in attendance were St Lawrence's from Manchester, John Mitchel's from Birmingham, Claddagh Gaels from Luton and from London is Parnell's, North London Shamrocks, St Clarets and Tara's. This tournament is going from strength to strength with one hundred and thirty six girls playing Gaelic football.

U14's Competition we had 5 teams from St Lawrence's, Claddagh Gaels, John Mitchel's, Parnell's and Tara's
U16's Competition we had 4 teams from St Claret's, Claddagh Gaels, Parnell's, and Tara's clubs.The girls enjoyed implementing their skills in the games and it was noted that the level of football is increasing with tight games which was reflected on the pitches. It's great to see the girls getting their reward after all their hard work of training throughout the season.
