The GAA provincial Council of Britain, Warwickshire Juvenile G.A.A and

Warwickshire Community G.A.A are inviting a number of partner G.A.A Clubs and

schools in Ireland and Britain to participate in the Feile Peile International 2009.

The festival will be a celebration of the growth of Gaelic Games in Britain and will

involve boys and girl’s championship & shield competitions, exciting skills

competitions, opening festival parade and closing ceremony.

The Warwickshire G.A.A Juvenile Board is the governing body for Gaelic Games in

the Midlands. The Warwickshire Community G.A.A will continue the good work done

by Warwickshire Schools GAA, which was responsible for the most extensive Gaelic

Games School’s Initiative outside of Ireland.

The Feile Peile International 2009 will be run on similar format to the annual Feile in

Ireland, but will be 9-a-side from teams including a squad of 12 and 3 mentors.

Partner teams from Ireland and Britain will be paired with a local host

club and participate in a league competition on Saturday before progressing to a

shield or cup competition on Sunday.

Irish clubs will be hosted by local Warwickshire G.A.A Clubs and will be provided with

accommodation for the squad of 12 players throughout the duration of the Feile.

The event will take place over three days Friday 29th, Saturday 30th and Sunday

31st May 2009. Host clubs will expect guests to arrive Friday with the Opening

ceremony taking place on Friday evening. Each team is expected to

parade their own club banner. The competition will commence on Saturday morning

and continue through to Sunday evening with the closing ceremony on Sunday night.

Teams will be expected to leave on Monday morning.
