Feile comes to an end

03 July, 2011

What has been a momentous week for Midleton GAA club and its juvenile section is now coming to an end. You can check out the photos from the week by clicking HERE
Midleton on Friday last played two games; the first against Fr O'Neills which they won and the second against Erins Own which went the other way.
New York on the other hand won all their Friday games and went ahead to the Semi Finals in the Glen where they played St Enda's from Belfast. Coincedentally Midleton's Fe 13's were due to play St Enda's on their recent trip to Belfast but the match was cancelled due to St Enda's having a Feile qualifier on the same day. As for the New York match, well it was not to be their day and not only did St Enda's win but they went on to take the final win as well.
All the lads went to the finals on Saturday and in the afternoon they returned to Clonmult Memorial Park for a farewell BBQ for our visitors. This proved to be a great success with the weather providing a great backdrop for the evening.
Ceoltas kids performed some wonderful traditional music while all waited for the food to arrive and then John Shanahan took over the entertainment on his guitar.
As for the food Pa O'Farrell provided some great snags, burgers and chicken which went down a treat.
It was a joy to see all the kids out on the pitch enjoying the new friends made over this week.
Later in the evening presentations were made to the New York team by Midleton Chairmen, adult and juvenile. New York reciprocated with a presentation to the Midleton club and wonderful commemorative Feile 2011 medals and jerseys to the Midleton Fe 14's.
On a word of special note, Coleman Quirke presented a marvelous poem which contained all the names of the NY players and in the same frame was a lovely painting.
New York paid tribute to the host families who took such good care of their charges and Gerry Smyth (Midleton Fe 14 team manager) returned with some great complements on the fine behaviour of the New York lads.
Following the presentations it was down to the chat and a few songs - one of a couple of great social nights which brought our club house to life.
It only remains to wish our visitors a safe trip home and we hope you bring some life long memories back with you.
