NINETY-five people attended this week’s meeting organised by the Clare Féile na nGael committee at which initial plans for the hosting of the national festival were discussed.
The Féile finals will be held in Clare on the weekend of June 18 to 20 and the competition will involve all hurling clubs in the county. All Clare clubs will participate in the event as will the county U-14 hurling champions from all 32 counties.  Féile na nGael also caters for camogie and handball.
Clare previously hosted the finals back in 1987 when the event proved to be an outstanding success.
The organising committee is under the chairmanship of Ger Hickey from Feakle. He is Clare’s Central Council representative. Tulla’s Declan Hogan is the committee secretary while Pat McInerney from Éire Óg is committee treasurer. Other members of the committee include Tommy Hegarty (handball); Mary Hogan (camogie); Michael O’Regan (referees); John Fawl (parade); Seán Chaplin (games development officer); John O’Sullivan (IT officer); Sandra Reynolds (vetting official) and Syl O’Connor who is heading up the PR committee.
Amongst the details announced at this week’s meeting was confirmation that the Féile parade will take place in Ennis on Friday, June 18.
The importance of completing the garda vetting forms for all of those involved, whether it be with the preparation of teams or the hosting of visiting players, was also stressed.
All clubs were asked to make arrangements to have their grounds decorated for the occasion.
Regular meetings are planned over the coming months, as plans are put in place for the event.
