It’s been a poignant weekend at the 2023 All-Britain Championships.

Overnight, the passing of the Chair of the ABC Committee was announced: John Gormley was, amongst so many things, pivotal in making the ABCs what they are today – one of the biggest GAA gatherings outside of Ireland with over 3,500 children taking part across the codes. He notably served as Chair of the Provincial Council of Britain and was our current Delegate to the GAA Central Council.

All of us here in Warwickshire would like to convey our deepest condolences to John’s family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
