Hurling Discussion / London Senior Hurling Champions Kilburn Gaels
« Last post by barryqwalsh on Today at 09:36:35 AM »
London Senior Hurling Champions Kilburn Gaels will remember  the late Cathal Forde by contesting a challenge game in Gort, County Galway on November 8.

Mr Forde was a member of  Kiburn Gaels when they last won a county title in 2010.

He died suddenly, after suffering from cardiac arrest in April 2010 while training for the north London side at their grounds in Hampstead.

His brother Niall and cousins Brian and Colm were also part of the county championship winning side four years ago.

Following Cathalís death all three returned to Ireland where Niall now plays with  Galway championship frontrunner Gort.

Kilburn have qualified for the All Ireland Intermediate club championship quarter-final as a result of their victory in this yearís county championship.  This game is set to be played in late November or early December once the Leinster intermediate  provincial series is decided.

Twitter is a dangerous tool in the wrong hands. The younger generation of Ballinderry players, Lawn and Devlin, should take a leaf out of Enda, Conlieth and Micky Conlan book. The difference in their tweets is clear to be seen. As for the 'supporter' who struck and split the umpire, well,  I'm sure he is embarrassed by his actions this morning.

Totally agree, it reflects very badly on some players / supporters.

Do clubs have a code of conduct for social media or is that OTT?

one of the family has a E270 merc, auto.

Pure luxury to drive, even after 10 years and 170K on the clock.

Never any hassle with gearbox

I'm sure yesterday's showpiece and subsequent treatment of the officials will have helped the recruitment drive for new referees.

In life is winning that important?


Who in their right mind would put themselves through all that verbal and sometimes physical abuse. Nobody seems to reflect on the bigger picture when it comes to our games. It's all about the winning no matter what you have to do. There might have been a desire to win and commitment shown yesterday but there was a severe lack of sportsmanship or respect both on and off the pitch. When it results in supporters boxing one another during the game before the goal incident you know you should have stayed in the house.

Was looking at a 2011 C Class Mercedes automatic at the weekend there. Has anyone any experience of them? I have never owned an Automatic, would I be buying trouble or should I get 5-6 years of trouble free motoring before it gives bother?

Best winter tyre, best mud guard and best lights for this winters cycling lads?

Has your bike got mudguard eyes ?

I don't think it. It's for the winter bike, the good one is being put away for a few months. Was thinking of one of those blade things, they seem handy to fit but obviously don't provide the best protection.
Don't do much for the man behind you either!

Yeah we have a weights room more than a gym.

It does the job lads would use it outside of their main strength and conditioning training.
