The Fr. Murphy's ladies' players in London are very busy at the moment, with championship matches in both camogie and football.

The camogie side are flying at the moment, having recently won the All-Britain Mixed League with a great display in Birmingham, beating the local team John Mitchel's by 3-8 to 0-7.

This was a great day, as club sponsors Clonakilty Black Pudding put on a full breakfast for both teams and mentors afterwards.

The girls have also reached the Intermediate championship semi-final. They are unbeaten in this competition and recently enjoyed a very hard-earned victory over last year's winners, Croydon, on a score of 2-1 to 0-2.

Two Wexford girls played on the team, Rebecca Murphy from St. James' (Ramsgrange) and Ann Corrigan, formerly of St. Ibar's/Shelmalier.

The footballers too are busy. A team that is in transition, with new players joining all the time, they comfortably won their last championship game against T.C.G. at Greenford and have a further three games to play this month.

Fr. Murphy's ladies have great training facilities at Wasps R.F.C. in Ealing, with dressing-rooms, floodlights and a clubhouse, and they are in the throes of having a full Gaelic pitch installed there. We are in for a very busy July.

Anyone wishing to join us are most welcome and should contact Larry O'Leary on 00 44 7944178879 of larrygaelic@gmail.com
