With the mass emigration from Ireland the quality of the football continues to better itself week upon week and the strength of Ladies Gaelic football is something to be admired.

Please find a short report on the Ladies All Britain finals day that took please on Saturday 6th October



The annual All Britain Ladies championship final weekend was held at Pairc Na hEireann this Satuday. There was a good turnout of both players and supporters and conditions were perfect with the sun shining for all four games. The day began with the junior and intermediate plate finals were teams who had semi final championship defeats had the chance to pick up the plate titles. The plate finals were followed by the championship finals of both junior and intermediate grades.

The first title up for grabs was the junior plate final which saw London's Thomas McCurtains and Nottingham's St Barnabas battle it out for the honours. Both teams fought hard in this game with Thomas McCurtains claiming the plate title.

The second game of the day was between Liverpool's John Mitchels and London's Kingdom Kerry Gaels in the intermediate plate final. This was a good game of football with the Mitchels girls coming out on top picking up the plate title.

The third game of the day was the junior championship final between Liverpool's Wolfe Tones and London's Holloway Gaels. This game was won by the class act that was Holloway Gaels after a fast paced, high intensity game.

The fourth and final game of the day was the intermediate final between London sides Father Murphys and Parnells. This game was of the highest quality and neither team deserved to lose on the day. A draw was the final result with both teams meeting again next weekend.

We would like to thank everyone involved for making Saturday's final day a great success and many thanks to Pairc Na hEireann in Warwickshire for helping with facilities on the day.
