1994 Down All-Ireland winning midfielder Greg McCartan guided Fulham Irish to London SFC glory today.

They scraped home by the narrowest of margins against Tir Chonaill Gaels - 0-15 to 1-11 -  having trailed by 0-7 to 1-5 at the change of ends.

Joe Roberts netted Tir Chonaill's goal but they were left disappointed after former Tyrone star Owen Mulligan converted a match-winning injury-time free.
