Boyle Park was host to more than 240 children last weekend during Féile Peile na nÓg. On top of that players, mentors, parents and supporters enjoyed skillful and competitive games under the summer sunshine. Friday evening saw first and second round games for the girls division 4 and Saturday morning, Drumgoon boys and girls played their host teams, with the boys playing Carndonagh, Donegal and the girls playing St. Bride’s of Knockbridge in Co Louth. In the afternoon, the boys teams left for Belcoo and Kinawley for their quarter-finals with Boyle Park hosting the girls division 4 quarter – finals. There was great excitement as our two pitches facilitated 6 games on Saturday after, with one game finishing on a tie-breaker of 21 meter frees after extra-time couldn’t separate our visitors St. Bride’s and Naomh Eoin of Derry. Though the quarter-finals wrapped up by 6 o’clock, duties weren’t finished yet for the many club volunteers who spent the weekend stewarding, supplying refreshments and organising. Drumgoon players, visiting teams and all host families returned later in the evening to Boyle Park for fun activites on the pitch as well as some music – a real festival atmosphere was enjoyed by parents and children alike. Many enjoyed viewing theUlster semi-final between Down and Monaghan in the club rooms. A warm meal in the club house was welcomed to finish off the brilliant two days. Some small presentations were exchanged between Drumgoon, Carndonagh and St Bride’s to acknowledge the bonds of friendship and fun created over the sporting weekend.
