Major Fox of the Irish Guards, an Irish regiment of the British Army, presented his case to the London County Board and their club delegates, who then registered their votes on the matter. The room was deadlocked at 15 votes apiece on either side of the debate, meaning a casting vote fell upon London GAA chairman Noel O Sullivan. Mr O Sullivan confirmed before the room that he would stick with his initial vote, which was in favour of accepting the Irish Guards to the Association.

They are now free to compete at junior level in the 2016 championship, league and cup competitions within London GAA in what can be considered a landmark case for the governing body.
