On behalf of the committee of St Galls I want to congratulate all of our members and families who have been involved in the Under 14 Féile Hurling event which has taken place this weekend.

Comhairdheas to Joe and Karl for the organisation of the event. Well done to the team for their excellent performances and true sporting attitude. A great effort by all the players.

We hosted the Kilmacow club from Kilkenny and I know they were made feel very welcome and the boys had a great time with their host families. There was great craic agus ceoil in Cumann Naomh Gall on Friday and Saturday.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh to the families of the under 14 boys who hosted the children from Kilmacow. I know they had a wonderful experience. As Joe said last night the boys will remember the friends they have made and the marvellous time that they had forever.

There are so many people to thank but first and foremost I must thank our secretary, Sinéad , who worked tirelessly to get things in place for the event and who spent most of Friday and Saturday working in and around the club for Joe and Karl and the team.

We all had our duties and everyone participated in the true St Gall’s spirit.
