Féile, or Féile na nGael as its officially known, is on the go since 1971. The inaugural venue was Thurles where Cork's Blackrock overcame Dublin representatives, Eoghan Ruadh, to take home the coveted Christy Ring Trophy. 

Since then, various locations have accommodated this festival of hurling which is confined to U14 hurlers and camogie players – while it receives very little attention, handball and rounders also fall within the remit of Féile. 

Last weekend saw participants from all over Ireland head south to Cork and Kerry where the competition was played out over 3 days.
