Shannon Gaels welcomes London to Féile 2017

Féile Girls 2017

Shannon Gaels are all ready to welcome their visiting club, London, to our community for Féile this weekend.   The u14 London Ladies Team, their mentors and parents will be with us from Thursday to Sunday.  It is a marvellous occasion for the club and we are so looking forward to our visitors.

Preparation for this event has been ongoing for a while as we are one of the many venues for games , spread across Cavan, Fermanagh and Monaghan. On Friday we also welcome visiting clubs from neighbour Belcoo, Scotland, Newtownbutler and John Bosco’s, (Co Down).  there will be six games of football on our pitch from 16:00 to 20:30.   On Saturday we play against our new friends from London at 10am in Phairc Gaeil Na Sionnainne.  We then travel to Lissan (outside Enniskillen) where we continue with the next round of games.

We wish our girls and their mentors,   Eugene McLoughlin, Micheal McPartlin and Tina O’Brien,  all the very best for the weekend and know that they will do us proud both on and off the field.  It is a fantastic opportunity for our young players to both compete against and meet players from different places and they will remember this weekend and the friends they make for many years to come!

Thank you to all the host families who have opened their doors and their homes to host the children and adults.  Without your support we would not be able to make this happen. Thank you to everyone who has helped or will be helping in any way over the weekend.  Your help and support is really appreciated.

Please give a huge Shannon Gaels welcome to our visitors when you meet them in the area over the weekend.  They are so looking forward to all that we have to offer.
