TTP are proud to sponsor Ballinascreen U14 Hurlers as they embarked on the All Ireland Féile na nGael 2018 Division 2.
Féile provides an opportunity for:
- Under 14 players to participate in an annual Festival of Hurling/Camogie, Handball and Gaelic Football/Ladies Gaelic football
- Clubs to experience playing against teams from other Counties/Provinces
- Clubs to foster links with other Clubs in other Counties/Provinces
- Counties to celebrate Gaelic games by acting as hosts
A core aim of Féile tournaments is to promote a philosophy whereby every player has the opportunity to participate and play in their respective Féile tournament at a level commensurate to their age, skills and strengths.
The Ballinascreen team was made up of 32 boys, 4 coaches and a physio.
Initially, the boys travelled to Kilnadeema, Co Galway, where they played Tommie Larkins and Naas, qualifying them to travel to Galway the next day to take part in the quarter final.
On Saturday the boys played Kilnadeema and then Castletown Slieve Bloom and they qualified for the semi-final – we were delighted for them!
On the Sunday the team travelled to Connaught where we played Kilcormac Killoughey in the semi-final. We won – we were now in the final!
The boys played Naas in the final, but sadly lost out on the win. However, the boys played a magnificent game, and we could not be more proud. the boys all played with a lot of heart and showed sportsmanship throughout every game. They represented Ballinascreen impeccably well. Although we did not get the result we wanted we leave with great memories! There’s always next year boys!
