Sharing Féile memories has meant a funding boost for four GAA clubs, despite the John West Féile na nÓg and Féile na nGael competitions not taking place this year due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Boys and girls under-14 teams from all over Ireland who were gearing up for this year’s John West Féile competitions were asked to create a My Féile Memories video to win €1,000 for their club, courtesy of John West.
Although the competitions cannot take place in 2020, sponsors John West are committed to honouring their commitment to the competition to enable teams to prepare for the 2021 events.
The winning clubs are: Kiltale Hurling and Camogie Club, Co Meath (hurling), Westport Camogie Club, Co Mayo (camogie), Brickey Rangers, Co Waterford (boys gaelic football), Blessington LGFA, Co Wicklow (girls football).
The 2020 John West Féile na nGael hurling and camogie finals were due to take place across Dublin, Kildare and Meath in June, with the John West Féile na nÓg football finals scheduled for Donegal, Derry and Tyrone.
“The cancellation of the 2020 John West Féile came as big disappointment to hundreds of young footballers, hurlers and camogie players all over Ireland, but safety must always come first,” said Lucy Gratton of John West.
“The John West Féile will be back stronger than ever next year, promoting the philosophy that every player should participate at a level fitting with their age, skills and strengths as well as allowing clubs to play against and foster links with teams in other counties and provinces.
“Creating and sharing special memories is a very important part of the John West Féile experience and we are grateful to all the clubs which used the Teamer app to share videos which highlighted this.”Tweet
