U14 Football National Feile

Now that the sheep shearing is over, our thoughts now  turn to Feile.  Having won the Roscommon Feile, our U14 have  qualified for the National Feile Finals in Cavan/Fermanagh and Down, to be held on the weekend of 23/24 and 25th of June.

Our host club is Derrygonnelly Gaels, situated just outside Enniskillen in Co.Fermanagh. 29 players will be staying with host families and will play a minimum of 4 games over the weekend. We will play in Division 3 and are in a group with  Derrygonnelly Gaels, Enniskellen Gaels from Fermanagh and Mayobridge from Down.  The winners and runners up in our group will play the winners and runners up of a group containing Kinnegad from Westmeath and Ballymahon from Longford, so a local derby may be in the offing.  Other notable teams in Division 3 are Mungret (Limerick), Sarsfields (Wexford),Castleknock (Dublin) and Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickams(Tipperary).  These are all top quality teams, having won in their respective counties, so our lads will need to be at their best to progress in this tournament.

Nevertheless, all players are busy preparing for, and are eagerly looking forward to the weekend. Our  new Feile gear has arrived (special thanks to Declan O'Grady for his generous sponsorship), so we will be well kitted out for this weekend. 

Almost 100 St.Brigids parents and supporters are travelling up for the weekend, and have taken over the local holiday village Tir Navar  for the duration of the competition. Due to the numbers travelling, the village complex was unable to accommodate everyone, so the overflow will be staying in Enniskillen and surrounding towns.  This should be a great club occasion for all the players, families and supporters and everyone has been looking forward to this for the past number of weeks.

Our host Club Derrygonnelly Gaels have already extend the arm of hospitality with offers of curries, barbeques and sing songs for all. 

The host families have been paired with our players and contact has been made by parents to ensure all is in order.  

This promises to be a memorable weekend for our young players,  on the playing field  where they will get to compete against the champions of other counties, and off the pitch, where livelong  friendships and memories will be formed.

U12 Boys

Our Division 5 team had a knockout home game in the Spring League on Sunday against Kilglass Gaels. This was always going to be a difficult game for our lads with several players missing, but they kept trying hard throughout. The visitors however after an even enough first half pulled away in the second period to record a deserved victory.

Michael Henehan, Niall Daly, Roan Trundle, Jack Kinahan, Kian Mulligan, Killian Curley, Finnan Kilcommins, Bryan McDermott, Jimmy Carney and Jamie Fox.
