The Ladies Gaelic Football Association launched our Strategic Roadmap 2017-2022 in 2018 and a key area of this is to ‘Define a Model to Promote Female Leadership Across the Association’. The first step of this was to put a Female Leadership Work group in place and they identified the need for a Female Leadership Programme to be in place as part of an overall Female Leadership Strategy.


We are delighted to announce that expressions of interest are now open for this programme and we will have 5 places available for each of the strands below:

  • Coaching
  • Officiating
  • Administration
  • PR/Media


This programme will take place over a 12 month period with four generic leadership themed days where the full group of 20 participants will be together and then 6 evenings dedicated to their specified strand. These interactive sessions will be delivered by expert leaders in each field and some of the most high profile females in Ireland.


When will the Programme take place?

  • Day 1: 23rd March 2019
  • Day 2: 8th June 2019
  • Day 3: 19th October 2019
  • Day 4: 15th February 2020

There will also be two evenings between each date assigned to your strand.
