TEAMS FROM DOWN TO DUBAI LINE OUT FOR 28TH COMÓRTAS PEILE PÁIDÍ Ó SÉ
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.
