The Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2017 takes place 17-19 February in Comórtas HQ at Páidí Ó Sé’s pub in Ventry and various GAA venues across the Dingle Peninsula.



32 teams in all compete from 14 counties across all four provinces as well as teams from the UK and the United Arab Emirates in ladies and men’s senior, intermediate and junior competitions.


The football festival, which is also supported by Grant Thornton, Lee Strand Milk, Fáilte Ireland and Kerry County Council Tourism Unit, has attracted over 13,000 club players since it began in 1989. This year, as well as nightly music and entertainment in Comórtas HQ at Páidí Ó Sé’s pub there will also be a special excerpt from a John B. Keane play hosted by the late playwright and author’s son Billy Keane on Sunday evening in the pub.


Pádraig Óg. Ó Sé promises a healthy mix of fun and sport, ‘We are thrilled to have 14 counties with plenty talent among them and and we finally have coaxed a team from the East, Dubai Celts, which was always a dream of Páidí’s. The support of local host clubs is crucial in ensuring we can maintain such a high number of teams and we thank them for their co-operation.


We are delighted to bring on board our new title sponsors Lidl who are already great supporters of Gaelic Games in Ireland as well as Grant Thornton.

For the shore angler, the perfect spot is never hard to find. Miles of famous storm beaches with crashing surfs for the sportsman after bass and painted rays, quiet beaches and estuaries offering skate, flounder and plaice; and piers and deepwater rock marks containing a variety of species including pollock, wrasse and conger eels. The Dingle Peninsula has it all, enough marks and fish to suit everyone's tastes and at any time of the year.

Two books written by award winning angling writer Bob Moss: " A GUIDE TO SHORE ANGLING ON THE DINGLE PENINSULA" and " THE THIRD BREAKER" provide all the information you need to know about shore angling on the Peninsula. The first tells you all the marks and how to get to them, including where to dig and collect bait. The second tells you how to go about catching the various fish to be found at these marks. Both books are invaluable companions to any angler wishing to visit the area.
