Feile na Gael – well done to all our girls and boys who took part and enjoyed the Feile. Keep up the hard work and practice. Thanks to all the coaches for their hard work and time.


Feile na Gael - As our U14 Hurlers will be representing Down in the National Feile competition in Carlow/Kilkenny/Wexford on the 16th June to the 18th June, the club has undertaken a major fundraising drive to collate the necessary funds that will be required to facilitate this trip. Our team will be hosted by ‘Young Irelands’ of Kilkenny, home of the legendary hurler DJ Carey. Any individuals who are willing to make a donation that will assist in covering these additional expenses, it would be greatly appreciated. It is planned to advertise all submitted donations in the Down Recorder and Facebook, the week prior to the team going south with a message of good luck from our sponsors and donators. All donations received will be greatly appreciated and completely confidential. Contact Niall Magee 07843911072 or
