Gaelic4Mothers Ulster Blitz

Gaelic4Mothers Ulster Blitz


A sun drenched Naomh Gall pitch in West Belfast played host to the Ulster Gaelic4Mothers Blitz on Saturday past. Sixty mums from six different teams across the province came together to play non-competitive games against each other. In a day of many laughs and lots of banter the rules were simple “Go out and enjoy yourself! Anyone being too serious will be asked to leave the pitch!”The players certainly didnt disappoint the many spectators who turned up to cheer them on. Husbands, mothers, children and indeed grandchildren could be heard along the sidelines urging the players on in what was a great family day out. Organiser Sheena Tally spoke of the great atmosphere “Its great to see so many families here today enjoying the craic. Normally its the mums on the sidelines cheering on their husbands and children, but today its their turn to shine and they are definately doing that!”

After two hours of games all players, spectators and organisers gathered for refreshments in the Naomh Gall clubrooms. As Naomh Gall are celebrating their Centenary this year a representative from each of the participating teams was presented with a Naomh Gall Centenary Tankard from Marie Gallagher from the Naomh Gall club – a nice memento of a great day out! Thanks to Naomh Gall for the use of their facilities and to all who helped in anyway.

The Gaelic4Mothers phenomenom has taken off across the province and indeed Ireland with many more clubs now taking part. In some clubs up to 50 mums are coming together once a week to get active by playing the game in a fun environment. If your club are not involved yet nows the time to get started!
