In 2013, London GAA went on a remarkable run to the Connacht Senior Football Championship final. The Exiles beat Sligo and Leitrim to reach the decider, where they were humbled by Mayo. A qualifier loss to Cavan followed, but it was a remarkable campaign for London who reached the last 12 in the race for Sam Maguire.
Since then, performances have dropped off, failing to win a Championship game.
However, they could be set for a major boost.
Three-time All-Ireland winner with Tyrone, Owen Mulligan is now eligible to represent the Exiles in the Connacht Championship, should he be selected.
The 35-year-old has transferred to Fulham Irish GAA club, and made his debut this weekend.

London will face off against Leitrim in their Championship opener, by whom they were beaten in Division 4 of the League earlier this year. The seven-point margin does not seem insurmountable, considering home advantage will change hands next month on May 28, with the Connacht quarter-final taking place in Ruislip.
Should Mulligan represent the side, it would come as a major boost as he brings with him a wealth of experience from the very top level.
Mulligan last represented Tyrone in 2012, and helped his club Cookstown to an All-Ireland intermediate title the following year.
