Bunscoil Phobal Feirste, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, won both tournaments at the Irish medium football festival a couple of weeks backs (14-4-11) when their A and B teams won the Laochra Loch Lao shield and the Liam Ó Muirí cup. Organised in conjunction with Gaeltacht Quarter football team, Laochra Loch Lao CLG, the féile was a huge success with 10 schools taking part and over 250 young people there on the day. Two pitches were in use on the day, with Rossa and St Pauls kindly obliging. The féile raises the profile of the Irish speaking club amongst the young gaels of the Irish medium schools and makes a valuable contribution to the Irish language revival in the city.


The Liam Ó Muirí cup is the main tournament of the day, with the cup being presented in honour of the well renowned Gael, Liam Ó Muirí, who died tragically in January 2010 due to illness. A past pupil of Bunscoil Phobal Feirste, Liam played Gaelic games for St Pauls and alo worked full-time for Comhairle na Gaelscolaíochta. (The Council for Irish Medium Education)


Seán Fennell, head of sport in Gaelscoil na bhFál and the competition’s main organiser, said, ‘It was a great honour last year to be given permission by Liam’s family to name the cup in homage to him. He was a diligent, brave Gael who stood for the same values that we expect from the members of Laochra Loch Lao CLG and the Irish language community in general. Liam was a past pupil of Bunscoil Phobal Feirste and it’s fitting that this school won the cup this year when celebrating 40 years since the school was founded as the first Irish medium school in the North of Ireland.


‘The competition was fierce on the day and Bunscoil Phobal Feirste’s footballers did brilliantly. Their B team beat Scoil an Droichid in the semi-final of the Laochra Loch Lao shield while the A team beat Bunscoil an tSléibhe Dhuibh in the final of the Liam Ó Muirí cup. In addition, Campa Chormaic Aontroma,  presented special jerseys and scholarships for the Boy and Girl of the tournament. Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh, from Campa Chormaic Aontroma, presented the camp scholarships which will take place in the first week in August. Every school and every young person who took part deserve a big congratulations and we’re already looking forward to next year. We’d also like to thank Laochra Loch Lao CLG, the Greater Falls extendeds schools cluster who funded the competition and the Ó Muirí clann themselves of course.’
