1st Glasgow women's celtic sports festival

Glasgow women’s celtic sports festival

Tir Conaill Harps GAC is a community based club
in Glasgow. Although we run teams in various sports
and age groups this year the club is putting a bigger
emphasis on the role of women in the club. At our
AGM we set up a women’s committee who will be looking
at raising the profile of ladies football, ladies
shinty and camogie within the club and reaching
out to the wider community through school coaching

At the beginning of June the club is organising
the first Glasgow women’s celtic sports festival,
which will feature the three previously mentioned
codes. The weekend will include coaching courses,
exhibition matches and schools challenge games,
rounding off with a ceili. We would be delighted
to hear from clubs or individuals interested in
coming over for the festival. Further details will
appear from time to time on our club web site www.conaill.fsnet.co.uk.
Although we have had ladies football in the club
for two years it is only now really beginning to
show signs off taking off with reasonable attendances
at our weekly sessions at the Cartha Queens Park
Rugby club, in Glasgow, every Friday night, at 7pm.

The team is made up of Irish women working or studying
in Glasgow along with a few young Scots who have
come through the club’s underage structure. Although
the team does get the odd game against University
teams they really look forward to hosting clubs
from Ireland. It is also been the members experience
that there are a lot of players around Glasgow who
don’t know of the club existence. We would be grateful
if you could spread the word.

You can contact us through our full time development
worker, Tommy Main, on 0044141 221 4553 or e-mail
tom@conaill.fsnet.co.uk. The club’s annual awards
dinner is in the Holiday Inn City West, Glasgow,
on Saturday 28th April. Further details on this
can be found on the website also.
