St Peregrine's purring following Feile success

THE echo of St Peregrine's Feile success is still bouncing down the Blakestown Road.

The Division 3 victory is a further boost as the sport continues to prosper.

"Camogie in the club has come a long way," declares Andy Kavanagh, who managed the Feile Flyers with Glen Corcoran and Pat Heffernan.

"A lot of work has gone into camogie in the last few years, and the Feile victory will give everybody a lift.

"We were delighted to bring the Feile trophy back to the club."

Peregrine's have one of the best homes in the county. It includes their famous 500-seater stand, the only one in Dublin outside of Parnell Park.

Not surprisingly, the venue has hosted many big gigs over the years, including the Dublin Senior A Championship final.

The fine clubhouse offers the best of grub and entertainment.

"We have terrific facilities, and we try and make the best of what we have," says Andy.

"Everybody works together in the club, and there's a great spirit there."

All are pleased to see a cluster of Peregrine's personnel with the Dubs.

"We have girls involved with the Dublin Development squads and, no doubt, we'll have future Dublin seniors as well."

And, reflecting on the Feile spectacular, Andy feels the game is packed with promise.

"We played Erin's Isle in the final. We also played them in the group stage. It was so close between the two of us. They were such enjoyable games. And in the end, it came down to one score. That's all."
