Following on from the successful 2018 hosting of Feile na nGael hurling by Connacht GAA in the five Connacht counties alongside Westmeath and Longford in which 128 hurling and camogie sides were in action as host sides and welcomed 128 visiting sides attention now moves onto Feile Peil na nOg. One highlight of the weekend was the thousands of supporters and hurlers who were present at the Connacht GAA centre on hurling finals day on June 10th.
Connacht GAA have been selected by National Feile to host for the second time Feile Peil na nOg in June 2019 with the weekend date to be confirmed in the near future. Games will take place on the Friday evening, Saturday morning and afternoon with semi finals and finals occurring on the Sunday morning and afternoon. Connacht GAA previously hosted Feile Peil na nOg in 2014 with 8 boys and 4 girls divisions. Currently 65 teams have expressed an interest.
As a result Connacht GAA are requesting expressions of interest in Gaelic football Under 14 boys teams as well as LGFA Under 14 teams from Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo to be involved in 2019. One compulsory requirement is that one's club must be willing to host a visiting team.
