What is gaelic4girls ?
It is initially an 8 week programme aimed at increasing participation in Ladies Gaelic Football. The programme is focused on fun and participation, allowing girls to get an introduction to Ladies Gaelic Football in a non-competitive environment. It will be held in St Senans GAA Field, Foynes every Wednesday from 6.00-7.00pm from 13th of April onwards. On completion of the programme, participants are presented with certificates and t-shirts for their participation and are given the opportunity to join the local Ladies Gaelic Football Club.
Having completed the programme the girls will then participate in a fun Mini Blitz. The cost for the entire programme is €8 (although additional costs may apply for transport to the Blitz). Please note that players are covered by Public Liability Insurance only. Personal Injuries are not covered. Following the 8 weeks, the girls will be encouraged to register with our Ladies Football club, and those that do will be integrated into the existing teams.

It will be held on a weekly basis, with each session lasting one hour. The girls will be taught the basics of Gaelic Football through FUN Skill Games in a circuit style set-up.
