So what is this Feile all about?
Feile Peile na nOg is a festival of football held annually for u14 boys and girls.
- A truly All Ireland event with teams from the Uk, France and the USA as well as other countries also participate
- Hosted across 3 counties; Meath, Louth & Down
- 7,000 kids play in it over 1 weekend (29th June – July 1st)
- We host 2 clubs over that weekend
- Sean MacCumhaill’s from Donegal (Boys) & Truagh GAA from Monaghan (Girls)
- Families of the players from Cilles playing in the tournament, host a min of 2 players to stay with them for the weekend
What does this mean for our club?
It gives us a chance as a club and community to shine within the GAA community as a great place and people to visit.
Our boys and girls who come each Sunday to the Academy will eventually compete in this wonderful festival in a few years’ time, where we will have to travel to other clubs. That includes your son or daughter.
What we need though are volunteers!! Can you help?
There are a multiple of jobs to be done especially on the evening of the 29th and the day of the 30th. Car Parking, Teas, Coffees, BBQ, Disco, etc. We have hundreds of Parents coming to the Academy, can you spare a few hours over that weekend? The more we have the better the occasion.
We need help to do this and let our visitors head back home feeling they had a great time and hopefully might return.
