Na Seamróga:  Loughgiel

Last year in 2016, Feis na nGleann was held in Glenravel for the first time and formed part of the centenary celebrations of the local Conn Magee GAA Club. Hours of planning and physical work ensured that all, who attended, enjoyed the varied programme of cultural activities including Gaelic Games, Traditional Music and an impressive display of  Arts and Crafts. Cooperation between members of the Club and members of the Feis created a very pleasant working atmosphere and supports the theory espoused by Feis na nGleann and expressed in the seanfhocal “Ní neart go cur le chéile.” /Unity is strength.  

Sadly, two stalwarts of Feis na nGleann died suddenly after each had completed their parts in the the 2016  programme. Eamon ó Faogáin died just two weeks after adjudicating the Music competitions in  Cushendall on 5th June, while Paddy Burn’s untimely death followed just a few weeks later. As we remember Paddy and Eamon, another well known Irish saying springs to mind  and it  is indeed  our opinion “Ní bhéidh a leithéid arís ann” / Their likes will not be found again.
