Having won the South West Antrim Under 14 Feile title with a win in the final over St Enda’s they went one step better and annexed the All County Title with a win over a very strong O’Donovan Rossa team from Belfast.

Indeed the Rossa club were winners of the All County title in each of the last two seasons.

As a result of this success the team has been rewarded with a trip to the National Feile competition to be held in Connaught in late June.

The National Feile will see the All Saints boys competing with Under 14 Gaelic Football teams from across Ireland and beyond in a weekend of competition.

The club has embarked on a fundraising drive to facilitate the trip and recently hosted a successful “Sponsor a Player” initiative where members and friends were invited to support individual players with their preparations while plans are well under way for a Monster Table Quiz in the Adair Arms Hotel on Friday 30th May.

The club’s hard working juvenile committee have also enlisted the support of Ballymena Borough Council with their efforts and the Council has provided a total of £1000 from its Civic Representation Grant Scheme to support them.
