WELL DONE MENTORS!

A final thank you to the dedicated mentors who got the teams prepared for Féile na nGael 2017, working so hard for many months to hone the skills of over 70 children and who coordinated the passing of information to parents both game related and non game related for the event. Your efforts were incredible and a particular nod goes to the hurling management who made our club almost unique in entering two teams for the Féile thus ensuring meaningful game time and experience for so many club boys. Well done managers Mickey Laffan, Shane Carley, PJ Gaynor, Pascal Cooney, Georgina Roche and your great backroom teams!!

FÉILE NA NGAEL CLUB COMMITTEE 2017

And these are the pretty amazing people who made it all happen! Glynn Barntown GAA and Camogie club thanks our FÉILE COMMITTEE 2017 who have worked tirelessly to bring to fruition the successful club event we witnessed over the last few days.
Anyone who has been involved in an event like this knows that it does not “just happen”. Countless meetings, phone calls, emails go into ordering gear, organising food, organising various presentations, garda vetting, organising and allocating the host families, fundraising, organising sponsorship, hours of administration and a hundred other things ,and then as if that’s not enough…..you’re on duty all weekend “delivering the goods!!!” And they certainly did deliver -in spades! Well done- take a bow (and a very well earned breather!)

THANK YOU SPONSORS

Thank you again to our many fantastic sponsors for their support for Féile na nGael 2017.

 

THANK YOU

We’d like to express a big thank you to all the host families and all families involved in Féile na nGael 2017 in Glynn Barntown parish. Your support for the club and courtesy towards our visitors has been exceptional and reminds us why we are all involved in the great organisation which is the GAA.
We’d also like to thank the wonderful club people who did not have children involved in Féile but still gave up their free time to bake, make sandwiches, serve food, serve in the bar, wash and clean, flip burgers etc. So much work has gone into making the club “Féile ready” and so many have been involved -THANK YOU!

MAKING US PROUD

To the Glynn Barntown boys and girls who took part in Féile na nGael 2017 over the weekend we would like to express the great pride you have instilled in your club. You carried yourselves with great dignity with the perfect measure of good fun and we salute the excellent ambassadors you have been for our parish. We hope you have made great friends and will cherish the memories of this weekend.

FÉILE WEEKEND IS A HUGE SUCCESS!

After months of hard work, planning, anticipation and preparation the Féile weekend has swept by in a blaze of energy, games, excitement, companionship, appreciation and cooperation. Our three visiting clubs Éire Óg, Annacarty Co. Tipperary, St Fechins, Termonfeckin Co. Louth & Na Piarsaigh Co. Westmeath slotted in like old friends and despite being pitted against each other in our group games, all clubs based in Killurin followed each others progress through the Féile na nGael 2017 competition with interest and good wishes. We thank the three visiting clubs for their company and courtesy over the weekend and wish them safe journeys back to their respective counties, safe in the knowledge that we have all been responsible for creating a weekend of wonderful memories for the 140 odd children who visited Glynn Barntown parish. We also wish all other clubs we met along the way on the field of play well for the remainder of the playing season and thank the Bunclody and St Martins Clubs who hosted group games for our B hurling team and camogie team on Friday evening. A massive thank you must go to Wexford Co Board and the overall Féile na nGael committee for their incredible orchestration of this huge event in Wexford, Carlow and Kilkenny. I think its fair to say that the GAA has put itself forward on a huge stage over this weekend and has painted itself in the annual glory that is Féile .

FÉILE HELP!!

In order to make Feile 2017 a major success and to showcase our great club to our visitors we need the help of everyone in the club. The Feile Committee would greatly appreciate donations of cakes, buns and sandwiches to the clubhouse from 9:30 onwards on Saturday Morning and would love to see as many people as possible stay around to support our Feile teams.

FÉILE PEIL UPDATE

FÉILE FOOTBALL UPDATE:-Our 1st team won all three of their preliminary games v St Martins, Sarsfields and Shelmaliers in Killurin on Saturday morning. This qualified them for a semi final meeting with Naomh Éanna Gorey in Monamolin that afternoon. The game was tight but a last minute goal from Alan O Mahoney gave us a 1 point win on a scoreline of 2-4 to 1-6 . So the boys March on to a football final. Details tbc. Well done lads and mentors!
Meanwhile our 2nd Féile team travelled to Tagoat on Saturday morning where they defeated Wygram Gaels and Crossabeg Ballymurn but lost out by a goal to Rosslare.  Well done boys and mentors!
