All-Britain glory for Fintan and St. Brendan’s

Our very own Fintan Harkin and his St. Brendan’s side have won the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) All-Britain Championships after a monumental comeback against McDermott’s at McGovern Park in London.

St. Brendan’s GAA Club in Sale Manchester have a proud history and tradition of producing teams that compete at the very top level within the GAA in Britain.

Never was this more evident than last week when St Brendan’s went on to seal the illustrious accolade of All-Britain champions and with it the greatest day in the clubs 62-year history.

The achievement was made all the more incredible by the manner in which it was accomplished. Having been eight down at half time you would have forgiven some of the St Brendan’s heads from dropping a little, but there was not a bit of that as they appeared more determined than ever after the interval.

Despite being a man down, St. Brendan’s kept applying the pressure and reducing the deficit. Before long they found themselves with their noses in front and when a late McDermott’s attack was scrambled to safety the whistle blew to clinch a quite remarkable feat by a score of 2-10 to 2-08.

You can read a full write up of the action via the Irish Post.

From all at Agg Pro we’d like to say a huge well done to Fintan and everyone at St. Brendan’s.
