John West Féile Peile na nÓg County Finals a festival of football
A festival of football took place on Saturday as the 2021 John West Féile Peile na nÓg county finals were contested around the country.
This year the competition’s age-grade was moved to Under-15 to ensure children who missed out in 2020 now get a chance to compete for the opportunity to represent their club and county in Croke Park or Semple Stadium on Halloween.
“As a competition, Féile has been superb at living up to this from its very earliest days,” says GAA President, Larry McCarthy.
“To reach its 50th anniversary is a significant milestone and generations of players have experienced the joy of being a part of Féile na nGael and Féile Peil na nÓg.
“I am delighted at the move to the under-15 age-grade, which will enable those who were disappointed to miss out last year, due to the pandemic, to have the opportunity to play and be a part of Féile this summer.
“Restrictions mean that it will have to be run differently. But we will still be able to enjoy the games and the skills and talents of our young players from the hundreds of clubs and communities they proudly represent.
“Our thanks to John West for the support they give to assist us in the promotion of this iconic competition and to the national organising committee for ensuring that we will have a John West Féile in 2021.”
