Páirc an Cróchaigh have commissioned a 50th Anniversary Medal which will be presented to each group winner.


In recent years clubs having entered, paid their Feile Fee, and then in the days leading up to Feile withdrawing, or even sending notification on the morning of the competition that they were unable to compete. This caused major difficulties for Coiste na nÓg as it meant that Groups had in some cases to be redrawn while in others with last-minute withdrawals it meant that some groups were left rather lopsided.


Latest date for entries in both codes is 5pm on this Friday, July 23.
