Cavan Trip: Harlesden Harps had a memorable trip to Drung in Co Cavan last weekend (04/05/06 March 2016). As the club has had many close Cavan links throughout the years, especially with current coach Joe Lynch hailing from there, this trip was a great chance for a get together for the team. We played a practise match against the local Drung team on the 3G pitch at the back of the famed Breffni Park. The game was played in a great spirit with plenty of good football and scores throughout the game. The exiles got the upper hand in the end with the Harps winning on a scoreline of 2-13 – 1-17. Afterwards both teams went back to The Stray Sod in Drung for a great night of fun, food and frolics!

Many thanks to Drung GAA club for their great hospitality, to The Stray Sod for a marvellous feast and especially to all in The Bridge Guesthouse in Cavan town for super food and lodging over the weekend. All who went on the trip were in agreement it was a marvellous trip and are already looking forward to making it an annual event.

 

Training: For current players training takes place every Tuesday at The Pavilion, Hillside, Stonebridge, NW10 8LW. The venue is a short walk from Harlesden Tube Station.
