Another Hugely Successful All Britain Games

Over 200 girls, ranging in ages between 9 to 17 years of age and representing 18 ladies football teams across Britain participated in a fun filled day of ladies Gaelic football in Greenford, London on Saturday at the ABC Games. This was a yet another huge increase on participation for the event held in the same venue last year.

There were teams at under 12, 14 and 17 level and all players received a special LGFA goody bag and medals from LGFA President Marie Hickey and CEO Helen O Rourke. This was to recognise their efforts throughout the day and over the last number of weeks for those clubs involved in our Gaelic4Girls programme.  The Brendan Martin Cup was also on hand for the many kids involved to take a picture and dream of one day lifting the same cup in Croke Park. Great fun was had by all and there was plenty of encouragement and laughter heard all over the venue throughout the day.

It was another busy weekend at the ABC’s with primary school competitions on the Thursday, post primary on Friday morning and Go Games in the afternoon. There were plenty of girls involved in these also and the LGFA representatives took the time to talk to the many teachers, coaches and parents involved.

We would like to thank Britain GAA, especially the CDA’s, for their excellent organisation once again and also our own British council for their promotion and assistance with volunteers for the weekend.

From what was witnessed at the recent ABC Games, it seems ladies football is continuing to grow throughout Britain!
