Castlerea St Kevins greatly appreciates the massive effort made by so many club members over the last couple of weeks to ensure that Feile 2019 was ran to a very high standard over last weekend in O’Rourke Park. This was a major event in the club with 20 games played in O’Rourke Park over the three days Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Indeed on Saturday at 2-15pm eight buses carrying eight u14 girls teams arrived at the same time accompanied by parents and supporters. This required a lot of organization with toilet facilities, dressing rooms and catering which was all done in their stride by our dedicated volunteers. Thanks to all the ladies for the catering, the wonderful meal provided for our visitors from Lancashire on Saturday night and the refreshments provided over the weekend. To the stewards, hosts and hostesses for their attention to parking an housekeeping in the O’Rourke Complex. To the referees, linesmen, umpires and scoreboard keepers thanks. Thanks to Kelly Henry medical centre for their help at the weekend. Thanks to our host families for welcoming our Lancashire visitor into their homes. Thanks to our u14 boys team and management for representing Castlerea St Kevins at the Feile. Thanks to the Castlerea Community Scheme Workers for their help in preparing both pitches in O’Rourke Park for the games. We also thank everyone who provided sandwiches, buns, cakes and tarts over the weekend. Results: the boys u12 second team were defeated by St Dominics after extra time in the spring league division six final last Wednesday in O’Rourke Park, the mens junior team defeated Tulsk in the division four league last Saturday in Tulsk, the ladies minor team were defeated by Boyle in the championship last Thursday in O’Rourke Park and a very young  boys u14 team played five games in the Feile competition last weekend in O’Rourke Park and the Connaught centre of excellence.
