LAST Thursday night a meeting was held at Pairc Ui Chaoimh where further details and the draw was held for the National Feile hurling and camogie competitions.
The national competition is being held in Cork this year on the weekend of June 7-9. In the boys competition, there are 10 divisions, with eight Cork teams and eight visiting teams in each. They are broken into four groups, with two ‘home’ and two visiting teams in each group.
In the camogie, there are six divisions, with the same principle as above applying in them as well.
At the meeting, important information was passed on to the Cork host clubs regarding garda vetting and other information needed ahead of the competition.
On garda vetting, clubs were reminded that any one of 16 and over that will be in the house on the weekend must be vetted if they are hosting players from visiting clubs.
This includes anyone that turns 16 over that weekend. Cork County Board Children’s Officer, Des Cullinane, asked all who have not done so at this point to go through the vetting procedure as a matter of urgency.
Clubs were also reminded to send their club photos as soon as possible to the Rebel Og PRO email within the next two weeks, the address is email@example.com All players on U14 panels, including those not on the Féile panel, can be included in the picture which will be used for the poster.
Clubs were also reminded to appoint both Feile and pitch co-ordinators for the weekend.
The pitch co-ordinator needs to be independent of their team taking part as they may be required to stay at the pitch when their team travels away.
Normal rules of hurling and camogie apply, except for one change, two subs must be brought on after 10 minutes and two more five minutes into the second-half.
These players cannot go off again unless they are injured. Other substitutions are also allowed as well, but these ones are mandatory.
All games, including finals, are 15 minutes a side, with extra time in knock-out stages only.
Further information will be sent to the clubs in the coming weeks. Competitions in other counties are not all finished yet, so for now, its the county and level of the team, ie Dublin 1, Dublin 2 etc, from that county is listed.
