Feile Peil

Feile Peil

On the 27th-29th June, Connacht GAA will host the largest Feile Peil organised since the inception of the competition. 64 U14 boy’s teams

and 28 U14 ladies football sides will host a like number from the three other provinces as well as teams from England, Scotland and the

USA.

This will make Connacht GAA Feile 2014, the largest Feile held in either hurling or football. With 736 mentors and 4416 players

participating in the Feile Peil 2014, it promises to be the largest single sporting event for any age group at any level in the country

over the year.

An estimated 10,000 family, friends and supporters will travel with the teams ensuring a busy and bountiful weekend for

businesses in 92 parishes, towns and hotels. Best of luck to the boys and girls teams from St. Molaise Gaels in Feile ‘14 June 27-29. We

will be hosting Ballymaguigan, Derry (girls) and Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan (boys) in what promises to be a weekend of fun, football and friendship!
