DIT Bring Gaelic Football to the Girls in the City

Dublin Institute of Technology in conjunction with the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and Dublin City Council held a number of very successful Gaelic4Girls programmes recently in Ballybough, Gloucester Street and Aughrim Street.


The first five weeks of the programme saw all participants develop their gaelic football skills through coaching from students from the Dublin Institute of Technology. These students received six weeks of training prior to this programme and qualified as coaches and referees. In addition the students received event management training which assisted in creating links with the local Community and they then went on to organise a blitz day for the  sites involved.  The day saw everyone get an opportunity to experience ladies football in a safe and fun environment.


As a result of participating in this programme all students have gained lifelong skills transferable to many aspects of academic and social situations both inside and outside the school. In addition the students were provided with the opportunity to secure sustainable links with the local schools, sports clubs and councils in the catchment area.


Another very successful Gaelic4Girls Programme!
