Tommy Harrell Memorial Tournament Goes From Strength to Strength  

Sunday the 8th of September saw the Fr. Murphy’s hosting their youth hurling blitz for 2019. Girls and Boys from the ages of 4 to 15 took part throughout the day. London as a hole can be proud of the work being done at underage level as the standard and the love of the game is drastically rising. With our 4 youth club being represented and the arrival of John Mitchells of Birmingham each team was guaranteed good quality game time. A special mention also has to go to the success of Granuaile who only reformed in May and produced excellent skills on the day. The formidable Kilburn Gaels ruled supreme in the U11 Deirdre Harrell memorial cup after a passionate and gutsy performance against John Mitchells. Credit to John Mitchells as the fought to the bitter end only taking a last minute strike from Kilburn to win it. 


In the U14 Sean Diviney trophy, the Fr Murphy’s continued their impressive run, after defeating Thomas McCurtain’s in this year’s ABC the guys backed this up with success in their own backyard. After defeating all before them once more the Murphy’s lifted the cup aloft. 

Regardless of the winners and losers on the day, hurling was the true champion as over 150 kids were out playing and showing off their skills. 2019 was the year for the hurlers as the game as gone from strength to strength and this is down to each clubs hard work.
