Féile Peile na nÓg 2018

March 26th, 2018 | News

We have the honour of being one of the host clubs for the John West Féile Peile na nÓg 2018 tournament which is being hosted by Down, Louth & Meath on the weekend of Friday 29th June – Sunday 1st July 2018. Féile Peile na nÓg is an international festival of Gaelic football for boys and girls under 14 years of age. It was first held in Cavan in 1982, with a total of 40 boy’s teams participating. In 2018 a total of 288 teams will take part in Féile Peile na nÓg – 176 boys’ teams and 112 girl’s teams. Féile provides Clubs with a wonderful opportunity to foster long lasting relationships. Féile Peile na nÓg involves the whole club, the whole community, our local schools, our referees, host families as well as social, cultural and civic authorities. Féile is special and is one of the best weekends in the GAA calendar. This festival is about young people celebrating their love of Gaelic Games, bonding communities, allowing friendships to be made, providing educational opportunities and above all having fun. Féile will have a positive impact on our club, on the atmosphere and culture of our club.

We would like to explain how you can help, specifically with hosting some visiting players for the weekend at your home. Please come along to the clubhouse this Saturday morning for 10am, or if you cant make it to that, please get in touch with me and I’ll explain what is needed. The success of this new venture for us, depends on our capability to host another club!
