DIT Students Complete their Gaelic4Girls Module

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association in partnership with Dublin City Council and Dublin Institute of Technology recently completed the Gaelic4Girls module in the college. The module is fully accredited and the students from the college qualify with coaching and refereeing qualifications whilst also gaining six weeks work experience running the Gaelic4Girls Programme with Dublin City Council in their areas.

Gaelic4Girls targets girls between the ages of 9-13 years in the hope that they will continue to play with local clubs in the area. The girls are taught the basic skills of Gaelic football on a fun basis by fully qualified coaches and then demonstrate their new skills through a series of mini blitz of games on the final day in Clanna Gael Fontennoy. The sites selected for this year were Ballybough and Ringsend and they were a huge success. The students really enjoyed the programme and all partners are already looking forward to next years module.

LGFA would like to thank Tonya Allen and LJ McGinlay from Dublin City Council and also Clanna Gael Fonntenoy for the use of their facilties for the blitz day. Our gratitude also to Dublin Institute of Technology for their continued support of this module.
