Big Screen GAA Action (Bar Area)
The biggest game of the All-Ireland Gaelic Football weekend will be televised via the big screen at the festival as Ireland’s counties battle to become All-Ireland champions.
GAA & Sports Arena
In previous years, Ireland’s national sports of Hurling and Football were showcased at the festival with live televised action.
Unfortunately, due to this year’s location we will not be able to host a match played live.
Irish sports such as Gaelic Football, Hurling and Camogie have previously featured at the Sports Arena. The Sports Arena is presented in association with The London County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association.
In 2008, Ladies Gaelic Football took centre stage as the London Ladies presented an exhibition match ahead of their All-Ireland semi-final clash with Wicklow in Dublin. The London Ladies comprise some of the best athletes from teams across the southeast of England.
In 1993, the junior ladies team won their first All-Ireland Championship and reached the final in 2007. It was a testament to the commitment of the team and managerial staff that they had once again beaten some of the giants of ladies football to make so far. Indeed, they even won the All-Ireland Junior Championship in 2008.
