FEW COMPETITIONS IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAA HAVE THE SAME ICONIC STATUS AS FÉILE. IN 2021 WE CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF FÉILE.
To mark this anniversary and to address the challenges of Covid 19, two
National John West Féile events will be held this year.
- 21st August 2021 • John West Féile na nGael (Hurling & Camogie)
- 28th August 2021 • John West Féile Peil na nÓg (Football & Ladies Football)
In 2021 each county is requested to run a County Féile competition with the finals taking place on 21st and 28th August 2021 as set out above. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Féile, it is hoped that every county will participate and that every club will be encouraged to take part.
To help mark the occasion, the National Committee is working on a number of different initiatives including
- A Commemorative medal
- Draw for competing clubs for ‘Croke Park Experience’.
- Draw for sets of jerseys / merchandise and more
Tournament is an Under 15 Competition – Under 15 years and Over 11 years, i.e., born 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009.
Each county is asked to organise their tournaments with a sufficient number
of divisions graded accordingly to allow the tournaments to be run off ideally as a one-day event. While each county will be
responsible for the running of its own Féile tournament clubs are asked to refer to the attached guidelines which are the specific playing rules of the John West Féile na nGael and Féile na nÓg tournaments and are recommended for use.
