Then came the first goal which saw the game spring into life. St Kiernans talisman Adrian Moyles kicked a free from 25 yards out which rebounded high off the upright to land in the small square, but unfortunately for the Gaels defence it was the Kiernans full forward line who pounced quickest to palm the ball into the net and register the maximum.

Liam Gavaghan stepped up to direct the resulting free over the bar in what was the final play of the game as the Gaels ran out 2 point winners on a score line of 2-09 to 1-10. This meant the Gaels had to see out the remainder of the match with 14 men, but they withstood intense pressure to turn the ball over and deliver it into Hanlon situated inside the 21 yard line, who was fouled by his man following a great turn. All the pressure was then on Kiernans, who found themselves in an unfamiliar position as they chased the game for the first time as the clock ticked towards the final 5 minutes.Tempers began to fray, and the unforgiving Matty Maher was taking no prisoners as he gave TCGs Gary McGee his marching orders courtesy of a 2ndyellow.

We all know each other, pretty much, and we all have massive respect for each others abilities. I grew up with a couple of guys on their team Mark Gottsche and John McGrath, who I went to school with and played football with most of my life.

Tipperary Cup glory for promising Kiernan's

In what was a repeat of last years championship decider, it was the current champions St Kiernans that came out of the starting blocks the brightest to register the first score of the game after 2 minutes. Tir Chonaill Gaels went into battle with old rivals St Kiernans on a lovely Sunday afternoon at the new McGovern Park in Ruislip.

TCG would like to thank Parnells for hosting the game and also for the amazing buffet dinner and refreshments provided after the game. A big thank you also to John Reape for refereeing the game. Youths: The U18 Girls played Parnells in a very close game for the U-18 final with our girls coming out on top with the help of a few last minute goals.

The second period started in a similar vein to the first, with Kiernans registering the opening score of the half after 2 minutes thanks to a free from Adrian Moyles when situated right out on the 21 yard line. Ryan Elliott once again got the Gaels first score of the half but had his team mates to thank for doing the hard work of moving the ball up the field at pace for him to tap over.

One moment please...

Hes been my player of the year for us. Hes an English-born lad in his early 20s and has set the standard for us. Im sure St Kiernans will be keeping an eye on him. Ive been really impressed with Liam Gavigan for us this season. Its going to be a good day for London football, he told The Irish Post.

However, luckily in Killian Butler and Ryan Elliot, the Gaels had 2 go to men to help get them out of jail. Firstly, Butler responded with a lovely score from a tight angle when under pressure. Next, Elliott pointed following a turnover ball from a poor Kiernans kick out which meant the difference between the teams was back to the minimum once more at the mid-way point of the second half. Then came another 2 pointed frees from the boot of Adrian Moyles, as the Gaels ill-discipline in defence was continually being punished by St Kiernans.

Sunday 6th 8:30-1:00 U-14 & 16. Its the first time ever the London girls underage clubs will play competitive football in our County Grounds McGovern Park. Saturday 5th 8:30-11:30 U-18. Thank you to the London GAA County board for this opportunity. Please come out and support all the clubs taking part. Youths Next Saturday and Sunday will make history in the LGFA underage.

This appeared to be the catalyst that the Gaels needed however, and a surging run through the middle of the pitch from captain Liam Gavaghan saw him send the ball over the bar after good link up play with Ryan Elliott.
