Well done to the U18 London team and the Parnells girls- Sine Moffatt, Aisling Fallon, Elizabeth Peach and Millie Taylor (Emily O’Driscoll previously) who played their last game in the University League against St Mary’s.  They have battled against some harsh conditions in the last two weeks but their enjoyment with the game has shone through and delight in representing their county.

The club would like to pass on its condolences to Caroline White on the recent passing of her father, Ned Connolly.  He resided in Castlederg, Co Tyrone.  The funeral has taken place but our thoughts and continued support are with Caroline, Mark, her husband and son Conall who have been involved with the club for some years.
