The spirit of Féile continues to burn brightly years after Erin’s Own GAC Lavey hosted Ballinteer St Johns in the national finals of Féile Dhoire with a hospitality that will never be forgotten in these parts. Brendan Laverty played midfield for Lavey on that June 2010 day when the two sides met in football. He wore his county colours proudly then as, creid nó ná creid, Lavey’s strip is identical to that of BSJ and the rules required the host club to change in these circumstances. Last Saturday he wore them again, this time wearing number 6, and Hurling for his county minor team against a Dublin Under 17 squad featuring Enda Larkin, Iarlaith MacGabhann and Robert Aherne from Ballinteer. Robert was a guest in Brendan’s home over the 3 days in 2010 and was delighted to renew the acquaintance on the pitch again. Brendan, in the blue helmet, was in the thick of the action throughout but the Derry team was outclassed on the day and came off second best this time out. We look forward our next meeting and hope it 

will be soon.

If our last match was played on a meadow this playing surface was at the other extreme as Scoil Uí Chonaill hosted us on the AWP at Clontarf and it is a very tight sward indeed. Sunday was a beautiful calm day and the sun shone brightly. It may have dazzled a few of our lads who’d been out on the town the night before and didn’t get home until after midnight. Certainly it looked as if we were short of sleep as, by comparison with Scoil, we were lethargic and second to every ball right from the start.

Camogie Féile 2013

 

Last weekend the U14 camogie team took part in the Dublin Feile. After a very exciting Saturday comprising four matches, we made it through to the Division 3 final on Sunday morning in O’Toole Park, Crumlin. Saturday began at the host’s venue, Thomas Davis. We played Thomas Davis, Crumlin and Naomh Barrog in the group stage and after some fine performances winning all three games without conceding a point we faced St. Vincents in the semi final. Our girls put in a stunning performance to win by 5-9 to 0-1. Our defence had been our most outstanding feature throughout the Feile with Naoise Irwin, Aisling Hayden, Laura Joye, Sadbh NicUilegoid, Grace McLoughlin and Isobel Cullen playing out of their skins to prevent our opponents from scoring.
