Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others:
This week sees the start of our advertising campaign to recruit members for our new programme. Keep an eye out for the posters which will be displayed around the local area.Our wish is to reach out to as many ladies in the community as we can, as “Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others” is open to ALL females over 18.We will be holding information sessions at a later date to answer any questions you may have. In the meantime, feel free to contact Miceal (087 6522957)or Mella (087 2364252) and we’ll do our best to help. And just to remind you : G4M&O is a fun, non-competitive way to get involved in learning about Ladies Gaelic. The emphasis is on fun, fitness and having a bit of craic.You DO NOT have to be a former player (although retired footballers are welcome!)We will be teaching the basis rules of football in a relaxed atmosphere with a bit of exercise thrown in. Perfect for a mammy who might have a future lady footballer in the house, or someone who is looking for something different to do for the Summer evenings.
