100 Years Of London County Board

(Oldest Posts First)

The London County Board are celebrating 100 years in existence this year, the original board was disbanded before WW1, the board was reformed in 1920 with four clubs and two of the original clubs are still going today. Brother Pearses and Thomas McCurtains. Neither would be regarded as the big names of London GAA, but both are dual clubs, and have a female section, whilst McCurtains also have an underage. Nice article on McCurtains in The42 over the weekend.
