The Opening of Bus Éireann Féile na nGael 2014 promises to be a great night with music, entertainment and refreshments readily available as we greet the stars of the future. In Athletic Grounds, Armagh TV will provide live interviews on the large screen and these will be broadcast live on the internet through the official Armagh GAA website.
This prestigious tournament brings together hurling teams, camogie teams and handballers from all across the country to compete in this unique festival of Gaelic Games.
Host clubs across Ulster will accommodate visiting clubs from the other provinces from Friday 20th June right through to Sunday 22nd June.
To officially launch Bus Éireann Féile na nGael 2014 we are delighted to announce that there will be two opening ceremonies – at Athletic Grounds in Armagh City and at Owenbeg, Derry.
This ceremony will see the parade of the teams onto the pitch to be officially welcomed by the respective presidents and dignitaries from the GAA and the Camogie association.
There will be 90 teams and 140 handballers at the Athletic Grounds and 78 teams at Owenbeg and at each ceremony these will be led onto the pitch by a local band.
An extra bonus will be the parade of some of our local disability GAA groups. In Armagh we will have the children and staff from Lisanally Special School and in Owenbeg we will have the Derry Disability GAA team.
The proceedings at both venues commence at 7pm sharp so it is advised to get there early. Admission is free.
