Lancashire have lost Four Provinces, St Kentigerns and Emerald Gaels and a couple of others I can't remember in football.

They've lost several hurling clubs can only remember Harping Shamrocks though, the rest will come back to me.

Brian Boru's are the team that won most London senior hurling championships, stopped existing in the early 2000's when they were publishing a book on their history that put them in a lot of debt.
