Dublin take honours at Glasgow Womens Sports Festival


All the honours went to Dublin at the second annual
feile na mBan, the Glasgow women’s Celtic sports festival, at the
East End Healthy Living Centre. Skerries Harps took the camogie
title with a convincing win over Gort Na Mona, Belfast in the final,
but their hopes of doing the double in the football final were thwarted
by county rivals Cuala, who scored three goals in the closing minutes
to win the game by the narrowest of margins.

The festival is organised by the Tir Conaill harps GAC and is only
in it’s second year is already growing in popularity with a total
of twelve teams from Scotland and Ireland participating in the two
competitions. The programme also featured ladies shinty, come and
try camogie and hurling and a coaching children workshop hosted
by Ulster GAA officer Terence McWilliams. The social side of the
weekend was not missed with a large crowd joining all the teams
at the festival Hooley in Drummonds Night Club.

The importance of the festival in promoting minority sports and
diverse cultures was not missed on the city’s sports council who
helped fund the event with additional support coming from local
construction firm Mevagh Contracts Ltd.
