25 clubs to participate in 2024 Glenveagh Homes Gaelic4Girls Programme

THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association is delighted to announce details of the 2024 Glenveagh Homes Gaelic4Girls Programme – with 25 clubs from Ireland and Britain set to benefit.

The Gaelic4Girls programme has been a huge success story for the LGFA since its inception in 2008 – and is boosted once again next year by the presence and support of sponsors Glenveagh Homes.

In 2024, 16 Irish counties are represented among the 25 clubs, while John Mitchels (Liverpool/Britain) will also participate.

Two clubs from Mayo will fly the flag for Connacht in the 2024 programme, while Leinster will be represented by eleven clubs from six counties.

In Munster, five clubs have been selected, representing Clare, Cork, Kerry and Tipperary, while the Ulster presence amounts to six clubs from five counties.

The roll-out of the 2024 programme will be assisted by leading inter-county players serving as ambassadors, with further details to follow in the New Year.

LGFA President Mícheál Naughton commented: “The Gaelic4Girls initiative continues to grow in stature and for many young girls, it is their first introduction to our wonderful sport.

“We are delighted to announce the 2024 participants today and it is encouraging to see such a wide spread of clubs from the four provinces, along with John Mitchels, representing Britain.

“I would like to acknowledge the sterling support of our programme sponsors, Glenveagh Homes, who have provided invaluable assistance since coming on board with us in 2021 to sponsor one of our most important development programmes.

“Glenveagh Homes will also sponsor our 2022 National Volunteer of the Year awards night next year and they share our passion for grassroots development.”

Cameron McDonnell, Head of Marketing Glenveagh Homes, added: “We are delighted to continue our support for the Gaelic4Girls initiative in 2024, which has grown year-on-year in popularity fostering both sporting and social skills for girls at local level.

“As part of our Building Lasting Communities programme, we have a variety of grassroots partnerships benefiting the wider community in areas where we are active and we look forward to working with the LGFA to further develop this brilliant programme over the next year. Best of luck to all the new clubs and players participating in the 2024 programme from all at Glenveagh Homes.”
