Britain GAA Football Club Championship Roll of Honour 1967-Present [References: 2-3]

Report

The Britain GAA Junior Club Football Provincial Championship has been won most often by London GAA clubs since 1967, with only Warwickshire GAA’s Sean McDermott’s (1972, 1973, 1975) and John Mitchell’s (1988) and two wins for Yorkshire’s Hugh O’Neill’s (1982 and 1999) and one win for Lancashire GAA’s De La Salle College (1974) interupting the sequence.

London clubs have won all the rest with 13 London GAA clubs on the winners roll, including 16 for Tir Conaill Gaels (the first in 1983 and most recent in 2015), 8 for An Riocht between 1976 and 1989, five for Parnell’s (spread out from 1968 to 1991), three for Tara (1980, 1995 and 2003), and two for Kingdom Kerry Gaels (2004 and 2013), St. Brendan’s (2002 and 2006) and Fulham Irish (2011 and 2017).

The most recent winners have been Thomas McCurtains of London, with a 7 point victory over Scotland GAA’s Glasgow Gaels in the Final (1-11 to 0-7). The winners of the Britain GAA Football Club Championship qualify to play in the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship (3rd Level or Division) alongside the Junior Provincial Champions of Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster.
