TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club 7's Ready to Kick off Big Weekend



The TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club 7’s take place on Saturday, September 27th at St. Sylvester’s and Naomh Mearnóg in Portmarnock, Dublin. The TESCO Homegrown Club 7’s have become the traditional opener to the TG4 All Ireland Finals weekend and it is now one of the main competitions in the ladies football calendar. This year there will be 87 clubs competing across the Junior, Senior and Intermediate grades but this year there is an extra special grade as for the first time an international section has been added which will consist of teams from San Diego, two teams representing Europe and two from Britain, whilst London’s Parnell’s club will play in the senior competition.


25 counties will be represented along with the five teams in the international section meaning that this will be a keenly contested competition. There are some extremely successful clubs amongst those taking part including the likes of Boherbue from Cork, The Banner from Clare, Shelmalier from Wexford, St. Brigid’s and Foxrock Cabinteely from Dublin; however, the favourites for the tournament will be former winners Donaghmoyne from Monaghan.


An extra dimension has been added to this tournament through the presence of so many international teams. San Diego are making the long journey across the Atlantic to take part with two teams representing Europe. Europe and An Eoraip will be representative teams made up of players from right across the continent and both teams are expected to compete strongly. These teams along with Thomas McCurtain’s and St. Lawrence’s from Britain will compete in the international section with the top two teams in that group competing to be the International champions. The two finalists will then go on to compete in the knock out stages of the Junior​ competition.


In all 30 clubs will compete in the senior section of the competition with the aim of winning the trophy claimed by Na Fianna of Dublin last year, 23 clubs will be involved in the Intermediate tournament, 30 clubs take part in the junior section and 5 in the International section. It is sure to be an intense day of competition with seven trophies to play for across all three grades.


The TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club 7’s have a rich history having been established in 1985 with Naomh Mearnóg and St. Sylvester’s clubs becoming the home to the tournament in 2002. Ballymacabry from Waterford hold the distinction of being the most successful club to take part having won the senior title on seven occasions.


Speaking about the TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club 7’s LGFA president Pat Quill said ‘This is a superb competition that really attracts the cream of club football. There is huge prestige associated with the competition and one needs to only look at the list of former winners which includes some of the best teams of all time. I am delighted that, for the first time, we are hosting an international section. The game is going from strength to strength internationally and this shows with our international section but if you look at the game as a whole you will see that there is great work taking place. We are delighted to have TESCO Homegrown as our sponsors for this competition, they are a major international brand who are involved with ladies football at every level and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their support of the sport.’


Local Marketing Manager at Tesco Ireland, Lynn Moynihan said, ‘We are delighted once again to be sponsoring this fantastic tournament and are particularly excited about the introduction of the international section in which players from all over the world will take part. This is the 5th annual Tesco Homegrown All-Ireland Club Sevens Tournament and with 90 teams participating it really proves that this is a highlight of every club player’s calendar. Thanks to the LGFA, St Sylvesters and Naomh Mearnóg for organising such a successful tournament and we want to wish players, selectors and managers the very best of luck.’
