Division 3 Feile All Ireland Champions.

On Friday 16th June our fe14 team and mentors started their journey to Kilkenny for the All Ireland Series of the Feile na nGael.   All the lads parents went by cars.   Our first stop was Danesfort in Kilkenny where we had 2 games to play, the first against Danesfort the score being 4.3 to 1pt, our second game was against Westport Co.Mayo and this team were a different kettle of fish, very physical and hard hitters but came out on top with a score of 1.4 to 2pt.    We then went on to our host club Piltown GAA where the lads were put up in their houses.   Some of our supporters then went camping in Piltown, some ended up in Waterford City.   Saturday 17th June our third group game was against the host club Piltown where the final score there was 3.6 to 4pt.    We now found ourselves in the quarter final of the Cup and had to travel all the way to Ferns in Wexford for this game to the Wexford GAA School of Excellence and what a set up.   We played Rathnure and easily disposed of them on a score of 4.9 to 2pt.
We then all travelled back to Piltown GAA where the club put on a spectacular night for us by giving a bbq and music and a presentation, we returned a presentation to them for looking after our lads.   We couldnt say enough about Piltown they were so good to us and looked after everyone.  Very, very nice people. 
On the Sunday the 18th we had to travel back down to Ferns to play a semi final against Eire Og of Clare the games from hereon in started to get more intense and we had to play out of our skins, but in fair to the lads they picked up the pace, heat and all, and beat Eire Og on a score of 1.5 to 3pt.  Next up was the final against a very fancied St.Vincents side we found ourselves down by 4 points at one stage, but battled away and took our points then we got a goal and it was all level with about 4 minutes left, we got a penalty and it was blasted to the back of the net thus we were leading 2.3 to 1.3 a barrage of shots to our backs followed but they were just awesome it was the longest 4 minutes ever then the final whistle went, we were Division 3 All Ireland Champions.  And the icing on the cake was Cork and Christopher Joyce beating Waterford in the Munster Semi Final.     Well done to all the lads and a special thanks to the mentors involved, Tommy Gunning, Paul Farmer, Kieran Hegarty & Edward Kenny, they got it right on the day.   We would like to thank all the parents who played their part not only for the weekend, but also for the spots they gave for the quiz fundraiser they were absolutely outstanding, thank you.   
For their win we are one of four teams who have been honoured with the monthly awards for June with Rebel Og on Monday.   Photos of the weekend are up on our Gallery for everyone to look at.
