PRO Notes 1-8th July 2018

July 20th, 2018 | Club News, PRO Notes


It’s great to see so many of our Youth players who have come through making the senior team and playing Senior level football.  Although league games have been lost, they are gaining experience at the top level, all credit to them.

Parnells U18 girls had a double header v St Clarets resulting in one win each.  The U11’s participated in their last Blitz of the season held by Taras and showed that the transition to this age group has led to some great strides in their development.  They will be hungry to play in the forthcoming ABC.

This week the U17’s will face Dulwich Harps in the League (4/7/18 7.00pm at Northwick Park) and prior to that the U15’s are set to meet St Kiernan’s in the Championship semi-final (4.7.2018 at Montrose Park re-scheduled game).  Good luck to all the players and coaches involved.


Surely the highlight of the weekend was the success of the London Feile teams winning titles galore!  Well done to North London, South London and London Girls and particularly those Parnells players representing their county.  Your hard work and dedication has paid off.  Your hard work and dedication has paid off.  Unfortunately Luke Keane injured his arm shortly after scoring a goal in the final.  We wish him a speedy recovery.


The Club is busy organising its tournament for the 8th July for the U12 age group in memory of Conrad Ryan, Nora Togher and Gerry Somers; taking place at Harrow Rugby Club from 11.00am.  Football, BBQ, music, family fun, games and activities.  The club welcomes friends and families to come along and enjoy a Sunday Funday!  Details available on the website and via London Youth GAA.


Finally, good luck to Mark White (U17 Manager/father to Conal) who is taking part in the ROKCC this weekend.  To support Mark’s charity, please see link on the website.  Kevin Keegan (father to James) is also making the trip.  We wish them well.



This last weekend saw the U15 development squad beat Gloucestershire to reach the Provincial final.  Congratulations to all the mentors and players and in particular Aiden Doran, Darragh Griffin, Ronan Hutchins, Pearse Kerr and Ethan Roche.


The Club had to postpone at short notice its U12 tournament in memory of Conrad Ryan, Nora Togher and Gerry Somers which was disappointing, it will now take place on the 15th September.  Well done to Mark White (U17 Manager/father to Conal) and Kevin Keegan (father to James) who took part in the ROKCC.  A great achievement; to support Mark’s charity, please see link on the website.


Good luck to Provincial Council and everyone participating in the ABC Championship at the weekend.  A feast of football and hurling for everyone to enjoy.


The club would like to extend their condolences to Ann Marie Keegan on the passing of her mother Ann Flaherty. Funeral Mass 12/7/18 7.30pm St. Mary’s & St. Andrew’s Church NW2 6HE.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, may she rest in peace.
