Replying To Galgetgael:  "1981 was last year of the sensible Feile, hurling is a 60 min game were the strongest, best representative usually goes forward - not these 7 min lottery games of nowadays were a fluke could send a good team home and rubbish to National Feile."
Was full games into early 90s aswell played over the weekend

Looking like a good sunny day for Feile in Portaferry today. Looking forward to a great days hurling in the Ards.

Portaferry strong favorites for the A competition.

Ballycran will probably take the B and Warrenpoint look stronger than the others in the C.

Great day of hurling and well done to all the boys who turned up and played there best. Portaferry won Div 1 and Warrenpoint won Div 2. Ballygalget won the Shield after beating Bredagh.

Great day out in Portaferry and thanks to the Ports for a very well organisied tournament. The trip over on the ferry always adds to the excitement.
Our lads didn't perform they way we know they can in the B final. Fair play to Warrenpoint they deserved the victory & good luck to them down in Galway in June.

I didn't stay for the A final but I'm not surprised Portaferry won it so easily. The games I did see earlier they were by far the best team. Good luck to them and Ballygalget in Galway.

Fantastic day out on Saturday and a really well run and organised tournament!

Warrenpoint were the best team on show in Div 2 and deservedly took home the trophy.

That Ports team really are exceptional! They were head and shoulders above every other team in the competition and beat the Galgets easily in the final. In fact, I don't think any of the other teams came even close to beating them - very very impressive.

The Galgets keeper (not sure who he is) is a serious talent! Some of the saves he produced really were top drawer!!

According to the programme, the Galets also go to Galway (along with the Ports and Warrenpoint)...hope they all have a great time and best of luck to them all.

The keeper was son of Ulster keeper Graham Clarke, plenty of coaching freely available there.

Is this the new generation of ex senior hurlers sons that are being pushed heavily at the highway to hell?

A lot of the new generation of players are sons of ex senior players in all clubs. Ex - players believe it or not are a valuable source of knowledge and can relay excellent training sessions - better than being dragged around the hills of McKenna.

Hills of McKenna?

There are no hills, hence the wind!
