Calling on adults who do not play – Gaelic4Mothers&Others is an innovative way to introduce mothers and other women to playing Ladies Gaelic Football. Mothers often drop their kids to training and call back to collect them, but the Ladies Gaelic Football Association wants to change that. The Gaelic4Mothers&Others initiative sees women playing Ladies Gaelic Football in a fun, non-competitive and social environment. Gaelic4Mothers&Others provides an opportunity for women to get their recommended weekly exercise in a fun way while meeting other mothers in the area. Contact Carmel Reid for more details.

Dublin LGFA are hosting a Level 1 coaching course over two days, May 20th / July 8th, full details here.

U10 Go Games v Ballyboden St Endas

Lucan were due to play 3 matches and had the teams set out that way but BBSE only had 18 players. It was decided to just play 2 matches instead and we loaned 3 players for each of the 2 separate matches played to even the teams up. All girls played in the games and a high level of skill for their age was shown by both teams. All matches were very competitive.
