Ladies’ football  boost for north  east inner city

Ladies’ football will be promoted in the north east inner city.

THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association (LGFA) has announced details of a North East Inner City (Dublin) Sport and Wellbeing proposal. 

Under the terms of the project, the LGFA and Dublin LGFA will, in conjunction with Dublin City Council, commit to developing a quality school club link programme that will:

• Promote teenage girls being active via ladies’ football in North East Inner City Dublin,

• Create a culture of ladies’ football in the proposed schools,

• Provide a fun four-week programme of ladies’ gaelic football activities to attract new girls aged 13-15 from local post primary schools into the local club,

• Provide a fun blitz day whereby the girls can demonstrate skills learned in a safe and enjoyment environment, and

• Provide teachers and coaches with LGFA coaching skills that will be transferable to many aspects of academic (PE Curriculum) and social situations both inside and outside the school i.e. local LGFA clubs.

The key stakeholders involved in this programme are the Dublin Ladies County Board, Scoil Ui Chonaill Ladies Club, Larkin College and Mount Carmel Post Primary School. The schools are based in the city.
