Well done to the Parnells girls (U18) who took part in the recent challenge games for London U18 Development v the Australian Wanderers AFI in Greenford.  A memorable and historic event where friendship and hospitality was extended to an entirely different continent.  Congratulations to all involved on a playing and organisational level.


The club would like to pass on its condolences to Margaret Farrell and her family for the recent loss of her brother Danny O’Donnell from Kilmacrenan, Co Donegal.  The funeral has taken place but our thoughts and prayers are with them all as they come to terms with his unexpected passing.  May his soul rest in peace.

Parnells would like to let everyone know that Sacha Moffatt, her sister Sara and daughter Sine are taking part in the 2019 Cancer Research UK London Winter 10K Run on the 3rd February 2019.  If anyone would like to donate, please visit their JustGiving page on
