It was the LLLO first time at the games a foundation that was set up in memory of Lisa Orsi to encourage the young generation of Derry to live life to the full and to travel across the world using Gaelic games as a way to find a home from home. The foundation took 40 young boys and girls to the game and had two men's football team, two ladies team and a Camogie team take part in the games.
LLLO and Hong Kong played in the Camogie final with a crowd of over 200 people watching the game. The LLLO team beat Hong Kong by 2 points on a score line of 3-2 to 3-0.
