Best of Luck
It was a very historic day for London GAA at the Grand opening of the new grounds 'McGovern Park' where thousands embarked to watch the London v Leitrim SFC game. London team played outstanding football, but sadly were defeated by Leitrim after a great display with a final scoreline London 0-16 to Leitrim 3-10. A big thanks to Ciaran Deely and management for all their hard work. Some of London's future Gaels got the opportunity to display their skills during the half time interval whilst others get to be flag bearers as they stood doing a guard of honour as both London and Leitrim entered the pitch. London Youths Committee would like to wish London GAA the very best of luck with the newly developed grounds and continued support with our future Gaels.
