Congratulations to pilot clubs involved in the LGFA TALK Project

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Ulster LGFA would like to congratulate the pilot clubs involved in the LGFA TALK Project for all their hard work: Tír na nÓg (Armagh), Creggan Kickhams (Antrim), Lisnaskea (Fermanagh) and Ballinascreen (Derry).

The LGFA TALK Project is a six-week club-based initiative in Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh and Tyrone aimed at increasing the awareness of positive mental health in young members aged 13-18 years, and removing the stigma associated with the subject area. The project was started in March 2020 and was delayed due to the impact and restriction of covid 19. The clubs have all had to adapt to some online learning and events in their club. We were delighted to partner with the Northern Ireland Youth Forum who shared their expertise and experience with al clubs involved through LIFEMAPS, a mental health model that harnesses valuable techniques in how to cope with the ups and downs of life.

The clubs were finally able to roll out some face-to-face activities in April 2021 and complete the programme to transform the club into a hub for positive youth mental health in the community and the clubs were invited to the Ulster Senior Championship Final last weekend to be presented with their certificates.

We were delighted to visit Creggan Kickhams in Antrim recently to chat about the programme and applications for the next phase of this will be opened in the coming months.

We want to thank all the clubs for taking part in a very successful talk project and the clubs were awarded with the status of an ‘LGFA Positive TALK Club’ when we presented them with certificates at the Ulster senior final.

Well done to everyone involved and let us keep talking.
