Keith Killilea of Kilburn Gaels

Kilburn Gaels Hurling Club is based in NW London. The senior club was founded in 1997 as an amalgamation of the two former London based clubs Desmonds and Glen Rovers. The juvenile club was established some years earlier in 1991. Both clubs are affiliated to the London GAA Board.

The senior club competed initially in the Intermediate Championship, winning the league and championship in 2000. The club was promoted to the senior grade in 2001. Since promotion, the senior club has progressed well reaching the championship semi-finals in four successive seasons, 2003 to 2006. In 2006 the senior team made the breakthrough into the senior finals in both the league and championship competitions, finishing as runners-up in both.

The club truly came of age in 2010 when it won the London Senior Championship, the Senior League and the Ryan Cup all in the same year. It followed this up in 2011 by winning the Tom Semple cup in Thurles, the Ryan and Collins cup again. In 2012 they won the London Senior League and successfully defended the Tom Semple Cup in Thurles.
