The North Antrim Féile Skills took place on Thursday 28th April in Oisin’s Glenariffe. The turnout continued from the success last year with over 14 players from clubs throughout North Antrim taking part and competing for their chance to represent North Antrim at the upcoming County Féile Skills Competition.

1st place went to Seamus McAuley from McQuillans Ballycastle

2nd place went to Michael O’Boyle from Oisin’s Glenariffe

3rd place went to Colm McKeegan from Ruairi Og Cushendall

The top 2 go through so Seamus McAuley and Michael O’Boyle will now represent North Antrim at the upcoming County Féile Skills Competition and we wish them both all the very best and as much support as possible on the day. At present the date, time and venue is still to be confirmed.

The Féile Skills this year was ran like clockwork once again and as you all know competitions like this don’t run by themselves. Oisin’s Glenariffe are to be thanked for the use of their facilities, we thank the clubs and players who participated, the mentors present who offered their assistance at the various skill stations and North Antrim representatives on hand helping out and organising the competition.
