Carrying on Paidi's festival comforts us, says family
The son of Paidi O'Se has said it has brought his family great comfort to continue the late GAA legend's annual Comortas Peile.
The 26th international GAA football festival will draw teams from London, Brussels and Madrid when it takes place on the Dingle Peninsula from February 20 to 22. Paidi's son Padraig Og (21) said: "I grew up seeing it take off and get bigger every year.
"At first it was only a small tournament where Paidi organised a couple of men's senior teams to come down, and from there he started bringing more and more.
"It's great for me and the family to be able to maintain it" he said.
"We weren't sure, after his passing, what way he would go, but the feedback I'm getting from teams is huge," he said of the event, sponsored by PhoneWatch.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny described the festival as a "fantastic GAA highlight".
Paidi O' Se was 57 when he passed away suddenly in December 2012.
