Newcastle Ladies Gaelic Football club are delighted to announce details of an exciting new programme called Gaelic4Girls that is commencing on the 18th of April. Gaelic4Girls is initially an 8 week programme aimed at increasing participation in Ladies Gaelic Football. The programme targets girls aged between 9-13 years who are not currently registered with a Ladies Gaelic Football Club.

Gaelic4Girls 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 Newcastle GAA pitch every Thursday from 7:30, commencing on the 18th of April. On completion of the programme, participants are presented with certificates and t-shirts for their participation. 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.A Mini Blitz will also be held with another Gaelic4Girls site after the 8 weeks and this is a major highlight of the programme.

This is the first Gaelic4Girls programme to be held in the area and all girls from Newcastle and the surrounding areas are encouraged to attend and learn the basic skills of Ladies Gaelic Football. This is a great way to make new friends and learn a new sport! The cost for the entire programme is only €8. For more information contact Kate Dennehy – 0862450876 or John McCarra 0878743009.
