Feile report

The U-15 Gaeil Na Daibheidí squad and their supporters had a brilliant day in Ballinagh, Co. Cavan on Saturday at the Feile Finals. Competing in Division 3, the lads performed very well, drawing with St. Domnics (a converted free with the last kick of the game for the Roscommon side proving crucial), defeating the host club Ballinagh and another Cavan side, Shercock, but losing to the eventual winners, Westmeath’s Milltownpass. Those set of results saw us qualify for the Shield final which was a 3rd/4th place play-off. We, and nearly everyone else there, thought that we would have been playing Milltownpass in the Cup final, having finished second in the group, on the same points but with a superior score difference to St. Domnics, but eventually it came to light that the Feile rules state that if two teams finish level on points, the team that conceded the least scores have the advantage (a great rule if you are a fan of defensive play). That meant that we got to play Ballinagh in the Shield final and won easily in the end, after a very closely contested first half. While competing with teams from other counties is a great experience for the young players, winning the Shield made the day even better. A big thank you to the Ballinagh Club who were exceptional hosts.
The Gaeil Na Daibheidí squad was:
Evan Heneghan, Jacob Kenny, Ryan Duggan, Carraig Kilkenny, Pearse Diskin, Odhran Ó’Conaire, Fionn Burke, Aaron O’Dea, Ryan Judge, Johnny Prendergast, Noeli Jennings, Malachy Devane, Seamus Byrne, Blake Bradley, Jack Brogan, Leo Corcoran, Tom Roche, Cathal Cummins, Cormac Devane, Nathan Turner, Conor Walsh, Jack Mullaney, Charlie Fallon, Adam Rattigan, Eimhin Kenny, Shaun Burke.
Management: James Fallon, Joe O’Dea, Adrian Heneghan, Gabriel Devane.
