Sharing Féile memories has meant a funding boost for a Mayo GAA club, despite the John West Féile na nÓg and Féile na nGael competitions not taking place this year due to Covid19 restrictions.
Westport Camogie Club were among the winners in a My Féile Memories video competition to win €1,000 for their club, courtesy of John West.
Boys and girls under-14 teams from all over Ireland who were gearing up for this year’s John West Féile competitions were asked to create a video for a chance to win €1,000 for their club.
The club won the Division Six Shield title in 2017 and the Division Four Shield final in 2015.
Although the competitions cannot take place in 2020, sponsors John West are committed to honouring their commitment to the competition to enable teams to prepare for the 2021 events.
There were four prizes of €1,000 on offer, one each for a boys gaelic football team, girls gaelic football team, hurling team and camogie team.
The 2020 John West Féile na nGael hurling and camogie finals were due to take place across Dublin, Kildare and Meath in June, with the John West Féile na nÓg football finals scheduled for Donegal, Derry and Tyrone.
