The Phonewatch Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2015 international club football tournament and festival took place across the Dingle Peninsula at the weekend with over 1,000 men’s and ladies players representing 12 counties as well as teams from Madrid, Brussels and London.
It was a London derby in the junior men’s final with Cricklewood’s Garryowen GFC proving too strong for North London rivals Tara. 2012 Cavan count junior champions Laragh United beat Ballydonoghue and Annascaul of Kerry but couldn’t make it three Kerry teams in a row as they were not strong enough in the intermediate men’s final losing out to Kerry side St. Pats of Blennerville.
The senior men’s cup, named after former Defence Forces Chief of Staff Dermot Earley, was fittingly contested between the Defence Forces Gaelic football team, with Dermot Early junior part of the management, and Castlewellan of Down.
The army men had a strong backbone with Kildare’s Gary White and Padraig Fogarty lining out along with Roscommon midfielder Ian Kilbride.  Castlewellan boasted Down goalkeeper Michael Cunningham among their ranks along with Down Half forward Cahal Crilly. it was the Defence Foreces who proved too strong winning by 3-9 to 2-6.
In the ladies competitions, Kerry’s Rathmore defeated Corca Dhuibhne of West Kerry in the senior ladies final. Mayo’s Burrishoole beat local side John Mitchell’s of Tralee in the Intermediate Final. Dublin’s Man O’War beat North Kerry’s Causeway in the Junior FInal.
Padraig O’Sen said, ‘Thanks to all the clubs for a great weekend of craic and football. A special thanks to all the local clubs who gaveup their pitches for the weekend. We couldn’t have done this without Lee Strand, Kerry County Council Tourism Unit and Opel Ireland. You can check out all the results and photos from the Comortas on paidiose.com
