Preparations are well underway for the National Feile na nGael - an Annual Festival of U14 Camogie and Hurling - this year hosted by Dublin. We are delighted to be taking part as the Host Club to Roscommon Champions - Athleague. We are looking forward to welcoming them to the East Coast and ensuring they have a memorable trip to Feile 2012. This all happens at the beginning of July. Athleague arrive in Kilcoole on Thursday July 5th and we play our first group match against them. Both teams head to Croke Park in the evening for the traditional Feile Parade which will take us from Croke Park via Mountjoy Square and Parnell Square past the Reviewing Stand in O'Connell Street and on to Middle Abbey Street.
It's off to Portmarnock early on Friday morning where ourselves and Athleague play Naomh Mearnog and their visiting Club from Donegal. Semi-finals will be on Friday evening at 7pm with Finals in Croke Park and Parnell Park on Saturday morning. All promises an exciting few days for Camogie people around the country! We invite everybody to come along and join in the days' activities - anybody in the local community with Roscommon connections is extra welcome to come and welcome our visitors! More details will be available over the next few weeks.
