Carlow to travel to London

McGovern Park will get another chance to host a high-profile inter-county game this summer, as London were drawn to play Carlow in the All-Ireland qualifiers.

After being knocked out of the Connacht championship by Leitrim, London learnt today of the side that they will face on June 25th.

They avoided Ulster’s Armagh and Fermanagh and fellow Div. 4 opponents Limerick and Wexford in round 1B of the ‘backdoor’ system.

London’s best result in the league this year was in the second round against Carlow, as they stormed to a five point victory at Netwatch Cullen Park in the second round.

The new McGovern Park at Ruislip has been drawn provisionally to host two London club games over the next week, but these could now move to Greenford due to the county side securing a home draw.

The Cara Stationery Ronan Cup Final between Brothers Pearse and Thomas McCurtains is down to be played this Sunday, while Robert Emmetts and Kilburn Gaels will face each other in the Cara Stationery Collins Cup final next Wednesday (June 14th).
