Last Sunday 9th May, Holloway Gaels kicked off their 2016 London Intermediate Championship campaign with a win over reigning champions Fulham Irish on a scoreline of 4-10 to 3.5. The Gaels started with great intensity and pace which never let up throughout the game. Fulham did not relent but the Holloway defence proved too strong and the Holloway midfield and forwards continued to break forward for some fantastic scores. Next up for Holloway is Fr.Murphys in the 2nd round of the Intermediate Championship on Sunday 22nd May in Scrubs at 12.30pm – all support welcome. See match report below for more details.
Pre-season Munich trip
On Friday 22nd April, Holloway Gaels set off to Munich as part of their annual pre-season trip. 27 girls from the club travelled and a fantastic weekend was had by all. A tournament featuring two Holloway teams (Spurs and Arsenal) and a team from St. Colmcilles Munich played an 11-a-side competition with Holloway team Spurs running out eventual winners. A massive thank you must go to St. Colmcilles of Munich, in particular former Holloway Gael Sinead Gordon, for hosting us and for the invite to Germany. A special thank you must also go to Hannah Fahey, Sorcha Durrant, Patrica McCarthy and Sylvia O’Sullivan for organising the trip, and to Ciara Holland for providing the entertainment for the weekend.
Congratulations and best wishes
Congratulations to Kerrie Browne on her entry into the London Rose Competition last Saturday, you did yourself proud and had the support of all the Holloways behind you. Best wishes also to our reigning Lovely Lady and solid full back Aoife Donnelly and Tadgh for their upcoming wedding this weekend in Tyrone.
