Féile Peil na nÓg – Good Luck Laoise!

Best of Luck to Laoise Prendiville who is part of the Kilkenny City girls football team heading off to Connacht for the annual Féile Peil na nÓg this weekend. The girls will be hosted by Claregalway GAA club.

We wish them all the best as they try to complete the 3-in-a-row. The city girls won Division 3 in 2012 and won Division 2 in 2013 and will compete in Division 1 this year. Laoise was part of the 2013 squad and it would be a wonderful achievement to bring back a second Féile football medal to the parish.

St. Brigid’s U12 camogie news!

The St Brigid’s U12 Camogie girls who recently played O’Loughlin Gaels in a friendly challenge.

This was the second encounter against O’Loughlin’s so far this year.  On both occasions St. Brigid’s won in convincing style.  Of particular note was the excellent hand-passing and hooking techniques employed by St Brigid’s which was evident throughout both games. 

On Saturday 28th June, St Brigid’s will be hosting an U12 Blitz in Kilmanagh. Participating clubs include Freshford, Conahy and Lisdowney.

Many of the U12 girls are also involved with the U14 panel and we wish them the very best of luck as they prepare to take part in the Feile this weekend.
