Eighty club sides from Ireland, the UK, Europe and the US will compete in the John West Féile na nGael National Camogie and Hurling Finals 2022 across ten venues in Dublin and Meath on Saturday.
What has grown to become one of the biggest underage sporting events in Europe is once more returning to regional venues for its final stages this year - for the first time since the pandemic.
Close to 2,000 camogie players and hurlers will descend on the GAA’s National Games Development Centre at the National Sports Campus in Abbotstown as well as UCD, Belfield and Westmanstown in Dublin and Donaghamore Ashbourne, Boardsmill, Dunganny, Kildalkey, Kiltale, St Peter’s Dunboyne and St Patrick’s Stamullen (all Meath).
Uachtarán CLG, Larry McCarthy, said Féile has been an integral part of the GAA calendar for 50 years.
“It nurtures a love of our games and ensures friendship and memories are among the key benefits of involvement in the GAA. Generations have experienced the joy of being a part of Féile na nGael and Féile Peil na nÓg, and I look forward to seeing this great success story continue in all our clubs.
“Our thanks to John West for the support they give us in the promotion of this iconic competition and to the national organising committee for their work on John West Féile 2022.”
Hilda Breslin, Uachtarán, An Cumann Camógaíochta, said Féile na nGael is, for many players, their first time to compete in a national competition.
“I know their experience will be positive and inclusive and pay tribute to the volunteers who make such a valuable contribution.”Tweet
