Féile fever on the rise as Blue carnival edges closer

THE Féile Fever is beginning to rise that bit higher with every passing week.

It will be some summer in Dublin.

The town will be painted blue as the carnival hits the streets in July for what will be a festival of hurling, camogie and handball.

Last week, Eva Roantree proved she was on the ball as she correctly answered that the Dublin senior hurling manager, Anthony Daly, is from Clare. Eva is from the St Jude's club.

This week's Féile question features handball, and one of the best players to have ever played the game.

He is the Kilkenny Top Cat, Michael Walsh, but what is his nickname?

Scoil star in blockbuster

THE Dublin Féile Division 6 Football final turned into a Blakestown blockbuster as Scoil Uí Chonaill forged a dramatic late win over Geraldine Patrick Morans.

"The game was everything Féile should be," commented Scoil PRO, Niamh Farrelly.

"It was competitive, intense and it ebbed and flowed. It was played in an excellent sporting spirit, and both teams were warmly applauded at the finish."

CCC2 supremo, Alan O'Connor, agreed: "That is what Féile is all about."
