Finglas in North Dublin will be a hive of noise, colour, craic, and football as the Leinster North Provincial Festival visits Erins Isle for the second year  in a row. It’s hard to beat the sights and sounds of participants disembarking their busses and other modes of transport with smiles and fancy dress painting the festivals with a kaleidoscope of costumed themes.


This year Leinster North will boast the biggest number of participating clubs it has ever seen and is a testament to the growth and popularity of the programme in the East of the country.


Ulster has now, for consecutive years, provided two offerings for its clubs to choose from. Omagh St Endas and Creggan Kickhams, Randalstown  will provide the podium from where friendships will be made and memories of a lifetime created. Similar to their counterparts in Leinster, the Ulster G4M&O Festivals have grown to numbers that have surpassed anything ever recorded. The football will, no doubt, be accompanied by some of the best dance moves seen since Portmarnock in 2023 and this will go long into the night after the final whistles are blown.


A huge amount of work has gone in by the Provinces and hosting club volunteers as well as the staff in both provinces to the huge benefit of all who will participate in the weekends ahead.


Let the Festivals begin!!!
