The senior team had their first outing in a number of weeks against the Tara in a league encounter at a sunny Greenford last Sunday.
After getting two walkovers in the previous fixtures against Parnells and Neasden it was good to get back on the turf against a stubborn Tara team.
Tara started the much sharper team with points from the lively Enda Gallagher but the Gaels started to find their range on a congested back pitch to open up a half time lead of 2-7 to 0-6. Aidan Mc Tigue, Kevin Mc Menemin and Eoin O’Neill all showed well in the full forward line along with an “up for it” Benny O’Reilly who found the net before joining JP in the bushes. Best on the day were Brian Ross, Marty McCoy, Aidan Mc Tigue and Eoin O’Neill. Final score TCG 3-12, Tara 0-8

Congratulations to the London football team on their historic victory over Sligo last weekend in the Connacht championship.
A special mention to all of our club members involved including Paul Coggins (Roscommon, London Manager), Kevin Downes (Cavan, Selector and Trainer) and players Mark Gottsche (Galway), Brian Collins (Sligo), Caolan Doyle (Derry), Eamon McConville (Down), Philip Butler (London), Cathal Magee (Down), Eoin O’Neill(Galway) and Barry Mitchell (Laois).
Next up will be the semi final against Leitrim in Carrick-on-Shannon and with confidence riding high who knows the story might not end there.
The calls from the bank on Sunday were for Coggins to be knighted, a bronze statue to be erected, the new stand called after him and even a Coggins phrase book launched, voting will take place shortly for one of the above.
