Inter-county team[edit]

Scotland fields a representative county team in the All-Britain Junior Football Championship. 2014 was a breakthrough year for the team as they lifted the All-Britain Junior title for the first time. The team had only ever made the final once before back in 2006, but lost the final, in extra-time, to Warwickshire. On the way to the title they beat Yorkshire and Kilkenny before beating Warwickshire in the final to a scoreline of 3-10 to 2-07. This set up an All-Ireland Junior Semi-final with Cavan. However they were defeated on the day to a scoreline of 1-17 to 0-06.


2015 became a momentous year for the Scotland ladies team as they reached the All-Ireland Junior Final to be played at Croke Park. They beat Derry with a score line of 1-13 to 2-05 at Fingallians GAA ground. They now play Louth at Croke Park on the 27th of September 2015.
