Dunedin Connollys will represent Britain in the All-Ireland club JFC series for the second year running.

Having won their first All-Britain championship title since 2009 last year, the Edinburgh based outfit retained the Graham Fleming Memorial Cup following a 1-17 to 1-12 victory over Sean McDermotts of Birmingham in Leeds on Sunday.

Connollys made history for Scotland GAA last December when beating Leinster champions Rosenallis (Laois) at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage before losing out to Ulster representatives Rock (Tyrone) in the semi-final a month later.

The Scottish champions will get another crack at the Ulster representatives next month as they play the winners of Belnaleck (Fermanagh) versus Naomh Colmcille (Donegal) on Saturday, December 9th.

Meanwhile, London intermediate hurling winners Brother Pearses face Fethard (Wexford) at Ruislip (throw-in 1pm) this Saturday and senior hurling champions Kilburn Gaels meet Kanturk (Cork) the following weekend.

In senior football, Fulham Irish will be action against either Castlebar Mitchels (Mayo) or Corofin (Galway) on Saturday, 9 December.
