Well done to the U18 Parnells girls- Emily O’Driscoll, Aisling Fallon and Millie Taylor who represented their county, London, in Greenford last Sunday playing in another round of the University League.  The team were successful in achieving 2 wins in 3 games and look forward to the final round this weekend with venue still to be confirmed.

The club would like to pass on its condolences to Hanna O’Driscoll on the recent passing of her husband John.  He resided in Harlesden but will be returning to Ireland for burial.  The funeral mass will take place on March 8th 12pm, St Michael’s Church, Cahermore, Alihies, Co Cork.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Hanna, her son Brendan, daughters Claire and Laura and all the family.  Also to the family of Joe Fryday whose passing was of great sadness to the gaelic community.  A gentleman and true supporter of Ladies football in particular.  May both their souls rest in peace.
