Has the draw been made for the for the All Britain club championship yet? Also who has qualified from each county so far?
I know Dunedin won Scotland and Oisins won Lancashire but that's about it

Not sure the London qualifier has been decided but would expect Neasden to beat TCG. Think Neasden are the strongest London team for a few years if they are taking it seriously.

Is this game being played?

I haven't heard anything but would expect Neasden to be put straight through due to TCG being the club's second team.

Ok so Connollys v Neasden in the final, is Manchester the most likely venue?

I saw the fixtures issued by Provincial Council last week. It says the football Final between Dunedin Connollys and Neasden Gaels is to be played in Manchester on the 18th. The Hurling Final this Sunday is actually between Thomas McCurtains and John Mitchells.

Both Connolly and Neasden more than capable of putting up big scores so it will come down to who has the better defence and I think Neasden are suspect at the back.

John Mitchells very impressive win in the hurling last week, play the Ulster Champions next. Attention turns to Manchester this weekend, Dunedin to be favourites after their big win on the way to the final. Neasden have the forwards to win, but will their defence be able to contain Dunedin.

Not many options for a neutral venue unless it was played in Oxford at Eire Og's pitch which is in the middle. Beyond that it was only ever going to be watford so where else would you suggest?

Was anyone at the Dunedin Vs Neasden game on Sunday? Looked like a cracker. But of course no live feed or match report from the British Council, which is a joke. It's 2018.

Ruislip. It was where both clubs wanted it played.

Yeah, I was at the game. What a game indeed and fantastically referred by Mark McLoughlin from Warwickshire.

Dunedin looked the best team throughout, but they nearly blew it. They were 6 points up with 2 minutes of time left (5 extra minutes of injury time to play also). Neasden hit three quick points and with the last attach of the game, the Neasden player was awarded a penalty (their second of the game) after he was taken around the neck - a deserved penalty. The lad seemed jittery hitting it and hit her down the centre, but the keeper's trailing leg stopped it and the referee blew the whistle as the ball went into the air from the rebound.

The Dunedin Full-forward line had the beating of the neasden full back line all day , Molloy and i think Matassa, were too quick for their men. Dunedin missed a bucketful from simple free chances in the first half. Harrisno i think may have got 2/3 points, but dan o'brien at full back did well on him. Harrison did win the first penalty when O'Brien fouled him.

Some big men around midfield for both sides, some nice marks taken.

*I think the British Council did updates on twitter.

** Nice side-point. A lot of the Dunedin girls, who the day before, played in Monaghan for their All-Ireland semi-final, flew over to Manchester on sunday for this game. Some committment.
