Feile Finals Weekend – Review
Davitts U-14 Squad, having qualified for the National Feile Peile na Nog Finals for the first time in the Club’s history, travelled to Co. Fermanagh last weekend. We were hosted by the Tempo Maguires Club and honestly couldn’t have had better hosts.
The welcome and hospitality which the team and supporters received over the weekend was overwhelming and we will be forever grateful. We wish Tempo Maguires the best of luck on and off the field and we look forward to meeting our new friends again in the future.
Our Squad of boys were a credit to their families and the Club over the Weekend. Their behaviour was lauded by all that met them as was their skill and sportsmanship on the pitch.
We had big wins on Friday against Gloucestershire and Ederney St. Josephs. On Saturday morning we defeated our hosts Tempo Maguires to top the group and then travelled to Corlough, Co. Cavan to face Glencar Manorhamilton in the Quarter-Final.
We lost an epic encounter after extra-time but, while the defeat hurt initially, when the dust settled we all realised that we had participated in an unique sporting occasion and the fond memories of the weekend will long remain with us all.
