A new GAA club in London is thriving under the tutelage of Camlough man Conor McGinn. The club, Éire Óg is based at the London Irish Centre and has been featured on the popular BBC programme ‘The One Show’ as well as on Irish television channel TG4. The programmes focused on the ever increasing role of the present generation now living in the English capital. It has been well documented that many young Irish men and women have once again had to emigrate from Ireland in search of work, with England featuring high on a list of countries that include America, Australia and Canada.

Conor enthused, “Éire Óg is a new GAA club based at the London Irish Centre. We are the home of Gaelic football in Camden, Islington and North Central London. We are based at the London Irish Centre and train in Finsbury Park. Our club has members from all walks of life and all backgrounds, from every province in Ireland and from the large Irish community in London”.

Conor added, “The GAA’s values are the heart and soul of our club.  We are dedicated to ensuring our Gaelic games, and the values we live, enrich the lives of our members, families and the communities we serve”. Conor added a word of encouragement for any Irish man or woman who is contemplating moving to London, expressing his wish that anybody who finds themselves in London to contact the Club.
