In order to promote the skills of Gaelic Football and to mirror outdoor Gaelic Football, we use halls where Pella Posts are installed. These halls are: Blackrock GAA, Ballinacarriga Community Centre, Donoughmore Community Centre, Mallow GAA, Little Island Community Centre and Whitechurch Community Centre. All schools will be able to choose the venue of their choice, and every effort will be made to facilitate this choice. Schools will be assigned groups and play in a non competitive blitz during November or early Decemeber.
Please see the ONLINE ENTRY FORM below for this year Peil Faoi Dhíon. The closing date for entries is Monday November 12th. The fixtures will be emailed out next week and games are scheduled to commence during the week of November 19th. Please send payment of €20 per team entered to the office, P Ui Rinn.
