Féile competitions will not be rescheduled in 2020

March 19, 2020

Cork's Eire Og - John West Feile Division 1 Camogie champions 2019.

The news that Féile na Gael (hurling and camogie) in Dublin, Kildare and Meath and Féile na nÓg (football) in Derry, Donegal and Tyrone were cancelled came as a huge blow to hosting clubs and teams who have already qualified. The announcement wasn't unexpected given the Covid-19 emergency.

Clubs, mentors and players had already been fundraising, organising host families, obtaining vetting and working through a host of preperations ahead of the event. There was some still hope that the events might go ahead later in the year but it has now been confirmed that this year's event will not be rescheduled.

In a press release to Meath clubs, county PRO Ciaran Flynn, a former Féile Secretary said: "There is no plan to have the 2020 tournaments rescheduled."

The counties that were due to host the event this year have been confirmed as hosts for the 2021 Féile instead.
