Conor McGinn MP, Chair of the All Party Group on the Irish in Britain, commenting on the news that a team from the Irish Guards has affiliated to the GAA in London, said:
“This is a hugely positive development and underlines how far we have come.
“The difficult history between the GAA and the British Army is well-documented, and so this is a significant moment both for the Irish in Britain and for relations between Britain and Ireland.
“The GAA has once again shown its commitment to building peace and reconciliation within and between these islands.хЪхЪ
“I pay particular tribute to my friend Noel O’Sullivan, the Chairman of the London GAA County Board, for his leadership and courage.
“As a lifelong member of the GAA, and an MP who sits on the Defence Select Committee, I wish the Irish Guards team every success and look forward to watching them play against my own club, Ьфire Ьвg, in the future.”
