FÉILE 2012

St Fintan’s Gaels hosted a very successful Féile weekend welcoming Enniskillen Gaels to our parish. Great credit is due to all who helped to make the weekend such a success. A special word of thanks to Colt club and their grounds people who had the pitch and surrounds in such splendid condition. To our host families who took wonderful care of our visiting team and mentors we thank you most sincerely as the weekend would not have been possible without your co-operation. Thanks also to the people who were responsible for cleaning and preparing the clubhouse. To our catering committee who provided such an array of refreshments and to all who baked cakes, buns and tarts for the weekend thanks very much. Our own team and their mentors who did us proud both on and off the field thanks very much. Last but by no means least a huge thank you to all from Enniskillen Gaels who were a pleasure to host and who made it such a memorable weekend for us.
