The new year begins with the confirmation of the dates for the biggest team sporting event that will be held in Ireland this year:

Fri 26th to Sun 28th June

Full preparations are already in full swing, and Wexford will play a major role in South Leinster along with Carlow and Wicklow hosting the 2015 National Féile Peil na nÓg. It is expected that over 250 U-14 Football teams boys and girls, over 6,500 players altogether will take to the playing fields of the Sunny South East in the last weekend in June 2015, which will make it the largest Feile Peil organized since the inception of the competition with teams also coming as far as Scotland, England and America.  This is the 2nd year that the competition will be run on a provincial wide basis allowing a wider expanse of teams to partake. An estimated 30,000 family, friends and supporters will travel with the teams ensuring a busy and bountiful weekend for businesses in over 100 different parishes, towns and hotels in Wexford, Carlow and Wicklow.

The logistical undertaking involved in organizing a competition as large as this will require the help of  all in our Club in taking part and hosting and to help make this visit to Wexford and to our parish of all young traveling, budding footballers a weekend they will cherish for many years to come.
