While the National Feile na nGael was held in Ulster last weekend Kilkenny hosted a Regional Feile with teams from Kilkenny, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Waterford. Barrow Rangers qualified from the Group playing in Thomastown while Ballybrown of Limerick qualified from the Clara Group. In the final, played in Clara, Ballybrown proved the stronger team winning 1-16 to 2-4. Kilkenny GAA would like to acknowledge the tremendous work by both Clara and Thomastown in providing their facilities and having them in tip top order.
We also congratulate the three Kilkenny clubs on their great displays in Ulster. Kilmacow reached the Div 1 Final and lost out to St Earnans 2-4 to 1-2 in the Final. St Martins contested the Div 3 Final losing out to Kilconieron in the Final. Tullaroan qualified for the Div 6 semi-finals but bowed out at that stage.
We wish O'Loughlin Gaels and Danesfort all the very best this weekend as they take part in Féile Peil in Carlow and Wicklow.
