Naomh Colmcille are entering a team for the national u14 Feile
competition being held in Derry from 28-30 June 2013. A quiz night
is being organised for Thursday June 6th, with proceeds being used
for training / playing gear for the Feile team clubhouse (note the
date has been changed from the initial plan of Friday 7th). We look
forward to seeing as much support as possible for the event – it is,
after all, exclusively for the Feile team. We would also welcome
parents getting involved in other fundraising activities to minimise
the individual cost of the gear we hope to get for the boys. Other
clubs have had multiple fundraising events for their Feile teams, so
any fundraising now will reduce the cost to everyone.
The Naomh Colmcille Cul Camp is due to take place on 8-12 July.
