The GAA has confirmed that ‘Bus Eireann’ will be the new sponsors of
‘Feile’ . This year’s football competitions take place in Cork between June
30 and July 2 while the hurling event will be held in Galway between June 24
and 26. GAA President Christy Cooney Gael welcomed the new partnership and
expressed hope that the reach of both organisations would complement each
other.

He said: “”Féile Peile na nÓg and Féíle na nGael are competitions that are
revered by our players”. “Since 1971 they have provided our young
footballers and hurlers with the opportunity to compete for national titles
at a variety of different grades suited to their ability. “They stretch
right across the GAA family catering for both boys and girls and as
competitions they foster the building of bonds with clubs and players, some
of which last a lifetime. “Like Bus Éireann, the GAA and these competitions
reach into every area of Ireland and we look forward to working together to
promote these valued competitions in the coming months”.

Andrew McLindon, PR Manager, Bus Éireann added: “Bus Éireann is delighted to
sponsor Féile Peile na nÓg and Féile na nGael. “We believe this is a great
match for Bus Éireann as the tournaments are a fantastic showcase of the
commitment and energy of communities across Ireland.” Bus Éireann replace
Coca-Cola who were sponsors since the inception of the competition back in
1971.
