Castlebar Mitchels will line out in the men’s senior competition as part of the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2022 taking place all across the Dingle Peninsula from the 25th to the 27th of February.
The six team competition sees them up against Kerry’s Listry, Padraig Pearses of Roscommon, Galbally GAA and St Kieran’s GAA from County Limerick and Carberry Rangers of Cork.
14 counties across the four provinces of Ireland will take part in the 33rd edition of the Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé, with 20 adult men’s and ladies club teams at senior and junior level coming for a weekend of competitive football and social events at Páidí Ó Sé’s pub in Ventry, West Kerry.
Some familiar faces will be lining out over the weekend including The Corona’s frontman Danny O’Reilly with Dublin’s Templeogue Synge Street GAA as well as TV sports broadcaster Aisling O’Reilly with County Meath’s Ratoath LGFA.
The football festival, which was cancelled due to Covid-19 in 2021, is supported by Lidl Ireland, McKeever Sports, EJ Menswear, Kerry County Council Tourism Unit, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Lee Strand Milk, and has attracted over 17,000 club players since it was founded in 1989.
