Brackey conquered all before them to preserve their All-Ireland Division One Feile title in stunning fashion at the Citywest Arena in Dublin last weekend.
Having captured the trophy twelve months earlier, the Tyrone club returned to the Feile stage for another outstanding national success, beating teams from Waterford, Galway and Tipperary on their path to glory.
Last year Matthew McCartan and Sean Kerr had Jack Campbell and Aaron Owens alongside them as they swept aside all challengers. This time round the returning pair teamed up with Tiernan McCrystal and Turlough Clarke to secure the under-14 team honours yet again. The Brackey lads, managed by Niall Kerr, polished off their campaign with a superb win over Tipperary side Ballyporeen in the All-Ireland final with an aggregate score of 35-27 on Friday night.
Sean Kerr, whose list of honours is growing at a remarkable rate, also claimed the All-Ireland Feile Skills award for the second year in a row, and then two days later he captured the 13 and under title at the Irish One Wall Nationals at the same venue.
The Brackey girls team made a bold bid to complete a famous All-Ireland double for the Tyrone club but despite emerging unbeaten, following wins over Ballydesmond and Broadford and draws against Tuamgraney and Clogh, they just missed out on a place in the final. The team comprised Elise McCrory, Emer Kerr, Elizabeth McGarvey and Michaela McCartan.
Carrickmore also participated at the All-Ireland Feile weekend in division two. The club had two boys’ teams involved and both acquitted themselves very well. The Carrickmore squad included Ciaran Cuddy, Darragh Canavan, Cormac Munroe, Lorcan McBride, Ciaran Daly, Conor Kelly, Dearcán Ó Donnghaile and Lóchrann Ó Donnghaile.
