Feile

In June of this year our combined U14 team took part in the All-Ireland Feile which was hosted by Connacht GAA. It was a wonderful weekend for our clubs both as a competing team as well as a host club to teams from Tipperary, Leitrim , Roscommon , Meath and Western Australia. In the opening rounds we recorded wins over Elphin Ballinameen, Clara from Kilkenny and our host team Arravale Rovers from Tippeary town. We defeated Milltown from Galway in the All-Ireland quarterfinal and we defeated St Mary’s from Ardee Co Louth in the All-Ireland Semi-final.  We had deservedly earned our place in the All Ireland Final where we faced Drumhowan Gaels from County Monaghan on the 30th of June in Claremorris. We were very evenly matched against our All Ireland opposition and there was never more than three points between the teams at any stage in a final full of tension and drama. We went a point up in the last quarter and it looked like we were on our way to All Ireland glory, but Monaghan scored the next two points to win by a single score. Despite the huge disappointment we had a wonderful weekend of football both on the playing field and as a host club and host venue. In Kilmore over the Feile weekend we hosted 5 games for our visiting clubs of Western Australia, Oran ( Roscommon), St Brigids from Leitrim, Bective Canninstown from County Meath and Arravale Rovers from Tippeary town. 

 The Feile Committee would like to acknowledge and sincerely thank the following groups.

The Host families who opened their homes for the weekend and provided food and accommodation to the players and coaches from Tippeary  Host Families: Kennedys, Wynne’s , Murrays, Taylors, Flanagan’s, O Connors , Lowes, Dwyer’s , Devaney’s , McElhone’s, Holahan’s, McKeon’s and Caslin.      

Feile Sponsors Between new team sports kit for the players, food and entertainment for the teams including our host team, and food for the 5 teams, coaches and supporters visiting Kilmore, Leitrim Crystal plaque presentations to Western Australia and Arravale Rovers the total Feile bill came to just over €3,000. All of this was financed by very generous sponsorship from the following Door Motion (Paddy Murray)

Supermacs, Carrick on Shannon, Taylor Cleaning Services ( Tom Taylor), Masonite International ( Gerard Holahan) ,National Automation, McHugh’s Carrick on Shannon, Connacht Gold / Homeland
PC Cabs ( Paul Corcoran ), John Craughwell, A number of parents who made contributions towards the team kit. Support team based in Kilmore Thanks to the support team based at the pitch in Kilmore for the host games who served up 400 portions of sandwiches to the visiting teams , coaches , officials and supporters. 

Barbara Devaney, Patricia Holahan, Clare Collins, Josie Munnelly, Teresa Kenoy, Aoife Devaney , Maeve Holahan, Deirdre Devaney, Rachel Devaney, Sarah McLoughlin & Olivia Munnelly. 

Thanks to Shane McElhone and Brian Carroll for their work at the pitch over the weekend and thanks to the line’s men and umpires for the host games Gerry Tiernan, Michael McGuire , Niall McLoughlin and Aaron Devaney. Thanks to the Dangan Community Centre committee for the use of the centre for entertaining our host team and to Gary Kelleher for putting on the disco on the Saturday night.    

 Team and Coaches. Huge congratulations to the team on coming so close to All Ireland glory and to the coaching and backup team of Paddy Murray, John Craughwell, Bobby Lowe, Kevin Creighton, Harry Rhynn, Lorna Kennedy and Ian Bushell.  The three combined clubs worked very well together in association with the Shannon Gales ladies committee in preparation for the Feile for several weeks before the event and over the course of the weekend. There was 836 games played in 48 hours by 352 teams with 176 clubs acting as host clubs. It was a mammoth task in organising such an event and great credit must go to the Roscommon GAA County Board, Connacht GAA and to the event sponsor John West. The Feile weekend show cases and represents the very best that is our unique “Gaelic Athletic Association”. Kilmore Shannon Gales and St Ronans look forward to Feile 2020 where we will be the Div 1 representatives from County Roscommon in the competition hosted by Donegal, Tyrone and Derry.
