Glenveagh is proud sponsor of the Gaelic4Girls programme, which aims to drive participation through coaching sessions and blitzes for girls aged 8-12

Glenveagh today launched the 2023 Gaelic4Girls programme alongside Ladies Gaelic Football stars from all four provinces including Aimee Mackin (Armagh), Jennifer Higgins (Roscommon), Emma Duggan (Meath) and Laurie Ryan (Clare). The players came together in Croke Park to launch the 10-week programme run by the Ladies Gaelic Football Association.

Glenveagh is proud to be supporting the programme since 2021, as it is crucial to driving participation in Gaelic Games for girls aged between 8 and 12. The 10-week programme incorporates coaching sessions with fun, non-competitive blitzes, with a particular focus on young girls who are not currently registered with a Ladies Gaelic Football Club.

Glenveagh is committed to building inclusive communities and supporting them to grow and flourish, recognising how its partnership with LGFA and support of their purpose to increase participation and enhance the experience of all of their members can deliver a shared goal.

Gaelic4Girls ambassadors Aimee Mackin, Jennifer Higgins, Emma Duggan and Laurie Ryan will be supporting Glenveagh with initiatives to promote the programme.  Aimee Mackin’s path to the top flight with Armagh began with her club Shane O’Neills’ Gaelic4Girls programme, and the former Player of the Year alongside her fellow ambassadors are keen to inspire the next generation of LGFA stars.

To mark the launch of the 2023 Gaelic4Girls programme, Glenveagh is giving all clubs the chance to be in with winning a training session with one of their four Gaelic4Girls ambassadors. To enter, people simply need to post their best team photo from their club account on Instagram or Facebook and tag the LGFA and Glenveagh with the hashtag #G4Gskills.

This year, 25 clubs from across Ireland and Britain will take part in the programme, with 15 counties represented across the representation. Clubs from Galway, Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo will the flag for Connacht in the 2023 programme, while Leinster will be represented by ten clubs from six counties. In Munster, four clubs have been selected, two each from Cork and Kerry, while the Ulster presence amounts to four clubs from three counties.

Speaking at the launch, Cameron McDonnell, Head of Marketing at Glenveagh said: “We are delighted to be supporting the LGFA’s Gaelic4Girls programme for the third consecutive year. At Glenveagh, we are passionate about building strong, inclusive communities and providing them with a solid foundation to flourish in the future. The Gaelic4Girls programme is an ideal way of doing this with significant benefits for participants and their wider communities. This initiative drives participation in Ladies Gaelic Football amongst young girls, and equips them with the confidence and skills needed for a brighter future on and off the pitch.”

Ladies Gaelic Football Association President Mícheál Naughton commented: “From humble beginnings, our Glenveagh Homes Gaelic4Girls programme has grown and evolved into a thriving initiative. For many young girls, the Glenveagh Homes Gaelic4Girls programme is their first introduction to Ladies Gaelic Football. It is a touchpoint that can lead to a lifetime of unforgettable memories and experiences – and we eagerly anticipated the commencement of the 2023 programme in Ireland and Britain. I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of our programme sponsors, Glenveagh Homes, who have been on hand to provide invaluable assistance in the programme roll-out. Glenveagh Homes display a similar passion for Gaelic4Girls and Ladies Football – and we thank them most sincerely for their ongoing support.”
