Gaelic4Girls has taken Claregalway by storm, with over 60 girls from Claregalway/Turloughmore and the surrounding areas descending onto Knockdoemore Pitch to be treated to 60 minutes of great fun and coaching in Ladies Gaelic Football yesterday afternoon. This programme continues for another seven weeks every Saturday from 4pm in Knockdoemore. There will be a second Registration evening next Saturday 29th at the start of the Session. It is fantastic to see so many enthusiastic girls, who have little Gaelic Football experience enjoying themselves.


It is open to girls aged 8–12yrs who are not part of a Ladies Gaelic Football Club and who are interested in learning the skills of the game. All girls from Claregalway/Turloughmore and the surrounding areas are encouraged to attend and learn the skills of Ladies Gaelic Football from enthusiastic coaches. The girls will be taught the basic skills of Gaelic football on a fun basis and will get to demonstrate their new skills at a fun mini-blitz. All girls will be presented with a Gaelic4Girls t-shirt and certificate.

A major bonus from the programme is that all participants will get the chance to participate in a Mini Blitz with another Gaelic4Girls site after the county blitz. The cost for the entire programme is only €8. Anybody who would like more details on this programme is asked to contact Jimmy Gavin 0872835847.
