County London

London is a county in Ireland - at least in the GAA it is.

They haven't had much luck in the championships in recent years but this year could be different.

For the first time in 36 years, they're football team have made it as far as the semi-finals in Connacht.

They're playing Leitrim.

Naturally, there's great excitement in London and Robert Mulhern is at the centre of it.

He's a Kildareman working as a journalist on the "Irish Post" newspaper.

He's also a sports fan and has written a book about the GAA in London entitled, "A Very Different County".

Robert brings us to a London GAA shrine, "The Boot" pub, to give us an introduction to Gaelic games in the British capital.
