CLG Thuar Mhic Éadaigh is to host the 2015 Mayo GAA Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta finals this year on Saturday March 28 and Sunday March 29. The west Mayo club is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the decision to welcome the other Mayo Gaeltacht clubs will be a central part of that commemoration. Speaking ahead of the comórtas, club secretary Michéal Ó Fhlainn said the competition is one of the most important club tournaments in the country, and that everyone in the parish was looking forward to the Mayo finals at the end of March. He said: “2015 is a milestone year for our club and it is fitting that we commence our celebrations by hosting the Mayo Comórtas finals. The Comórtas Peile competition means an awful lot to our club, to our players, and especially to this very important and vibrant Gaeltacht area, and we will be leaving no stone unturned as we welcome all the other Gaeltacht clubs to the shores of Lough Mask.”

Chairperson of the Mayo GAA Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta competition Piaras Ó Raghallaigh said: “Thuar Mhic Éadaigh has never failed to field a team in the Mayo Comórtas competitions and this is testament to the grá they have for the GAA and for their rich heritage and language. I would like to compliment the club for hosting the Mayo Comórtas finals this year and wish them well with all their special celebrations in the year ahead.”

“There is always an edge to the Mayo Comórtas Peile final. It is the first county final of the year and clubs want to put down a marker early for the season ahead. It certainly brings out the best in the players.”
