LONDON HURLERS LIFT NICKY RACKARD CUP AT DUBLIN’S CROKE PARK
Hurling and Gaelic games in Britain took a major boost yesterday when London raised the inaugral Nicky Rackard Cup at Croke Park, the home of Gealic Games. London beat Louth 5-08 to 1-05 to win the title.
London went into the final as favourites, not a term often attributed to the Exiles and came out victors in a match that seemed to take everyone by surprise. Goals galore were the order of the day for London setting the standard with some great strikes and Louth were unable to regain a foothold – with five goals and eight points, London comfortably won by 15 points.
London GAA hope to receive a boost from the coverage of the Nicky Rackard Cup and GAA clubs in London will be looking to recruit. If you are interested in playing you should contact the London GAA.
The Celtic and Irish Cultural Society would like to congratulate the London Hurling and London County GAA board for accepting our invitation to attend the 10th Annual Crawley Irish Festival and show off London’s first silverwear. In addition, we would like you all to know that Men’s Hurling and Women’s and Men’s Gaelic Football will be played out at the LFN Group GAA Arena.
