Parnells Club Notes 25th March
March 26, 2018
Parnells Senior were scheduled to play their first game of the season, for championship seeding v Cu Chullainns but were given a walkover. Congratulations to the U17’s who reached the final of the London Development League blitz at Greenford. Unfortunately the game did not reach a conclusion due to flood light failure and had to be abandoned.
