Postby SpóirtFest » Wed Apr 06, 2011 2:28 pm

We are organising a 32 County Junior B Football Tournament (13 a-side)and 16 Team Junior A Hurling Tournament (11 a-side)in Ballincollig, Co. Cork, just outside Cork City, over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

We also are looking for Junior Camogie and Gaelic for Mothers teams, for adult blitzes in those sports.

These events will be run under the broader umbrella of SpóirtFest, a brand new festival of sport (funnily enough) and craic and there will also be many other sports holding similar competitions, as well as a Sports Expo and Festival Marquee featuring several top Irish acts. All the competitions are being aimed at the non-elites i.e. the Senior teams, as it is the lower grades that are all too often overlooked when it comes to organised tournaments and blitzes.

This is our first year at this, we are a community collaboration of sportsfolk from the town and we're a bit behind on things like our website (should be finished in 2-3 weeks), but we are sending out the invites now. However, only 1 team for each code from each County will be accepted, so you will in essence be representing your County, but it is first come first serve.

The entry fee per player is €20, which includes access to the Sports Expo and reduced prices on the Marquee events. There will also be plentiful cheap but quality accommodation available, as Ballincollig is just 5 minutes from hundreds of college campus accommodation rooms, and we are working with these centres to get the best deals possible.

So if you would love your club to take part email me at rebeloreilly@gmail.com and we'll get the ball rolling.

Our Facebook page should be up in the next week where we'll be updating on a very regular basis.
