The second of two new cups sponsored by Jimmy Coppinger for the Féile championships is up for grabs on Saturday with the semi-finals and final of Féile na nGael taking place in Holycross.
A very promising couple of matches are in store as Moycarkey-Borris go in search of the Peil / Iománaíocht double, or can the host club Holycross-Ballycahill go one better than last year and lift the title.
Gortnahoe-Glengoole will also fancy their chances after accounting for Boherlahan-Dualla in the quarter final, while JK Brackens would also love to add the crown to their role of honour having lifted the Peil title last year.
The action starts at 12.30pm and is certainly an occasion for the diary. Following fast on the heels of the Féile final, the U16 Poc Fada and Féile Skills also take place in Holycross.
All participants are to wear their club jersey competing in these events and club secretaries are reminded to have the names of those taking part to be sent into the divisional secretary by this Thursday, April 11th.
