INGENIUM TC kick off a new dawn for Limerick Ladies Gaelic Football

THE Limerick Ladies Gaelic Football Association (Limerick LGFA) is on an exciting new journey for the 2018 season ahead. With a ‘span-new’ Limerick LGFA County Board in situ for 2018, a revamped underage structure (incorporating new development underage academies and more girls coming through the Limerick County development pipeline), new management/coaching structures in underage to adult teams,  then it is not surprising that the ‘icing on the cake’ should be the addition of a new exciting local commercial sponsor i.e. INGENIUM Training and Consulting who have become a welcome and significantly prestigious partner of the Limerick Ladies Gaelic Football.


Established in 2015 and head-quartered in Limerick, Ingenium TC provides a range of industry programs domestically and internationally in the development of People, Culture, Leadership and Strategy within organisations. Operating in 12 countries globally, Ingenium works in Ireland with Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in a variety of sectors, including technology, pharmaceutical, professional services, telecommunications, construction and the public sector, as well as with global businesses in the energy and resource sectors. The Ingenium brand is quite fitting with Limerick Ladies Gaelic Football in that that the company strives to leave a positive, impactful and sustaining imprint with the people they help develop and safeguard which is very closely aligned with the Limerick LGFA key objectives for the sustainable development of Ladies Gaelic Football in Limerick.


Speaking at the Ingenium TC sponsorship launch (at the UL Pavilion on Friday night last), Ingenium operations manager Alan Higgins spoke of the Ingenium pride in supporting the development of Limerick’s girls in Gaelic Football.  Alan highlighted that ‘The partnership aligns closely with the business core values in respect and talent development. We look forward to supporting all of the girls’ teams in Limerick LGFA, from all areas in the county, to allow them to participate in and enjoy sport’.


In appreciation of the Ingenium TC sponsorship, Pat Madigan (Limerick LGFA Development Officer) thanked Hugh and the Ingenium Team for their very generous sponsorship of the underage programme. Pat outlined some exciting times ahead for Ladies Gaelic Football in general and how the national game has evolved and increased in popularity in recent years.


Demonstrating his passion for Limerick and Ladies Gaelic Football, Pat spoke of how ‘Ladies Gaelic Football in Limerick is reflective of the national growth in participation in the sport and the steady increase in audience attendance over the last number of years. Pat outlined how supporter attendances to the senior All-Ireland Final 2017 (between Dublin and Mayo in Croke Park) broke all Irish, European and World attendance records to any women’s major sporting final in 2017 and these record attendance figures coupled with increasing Irish TV viewing figures, proves that the sport is now one of the fastest growing team sports in Ireland, Europe and Worldwide.


Pat went on to talk about Gaelic Football at a Limerick local level and that “As a proud, traditional sporting county, Limerick will not be left behind in Ladies Gaelic Football and ‘all stops have been pulled out’ at grass roots level to ensure that the Limerick teams today will compete at National level well into the future”.


The Limerick LGFA underage development programme has been on a long but hugely positive development journey (from last October to where we are today). With over 250 girls (from 24 LGFA clubs across the city and county) participating in development programmes since last October, the staggering growth and hunger for Ladies Gaelic Football in Limerick is very evident.


Limerick County underage squads are now facilitating 150 girls (from clubs across Limerick) and competing in various Munster and National Competitions. With further plans to increase the number of girls coming through the development pipelines (including Limerick Development Academies, Summer Camps, Schools of Excellence etc.), there’s really no sign of any slowdown in Ladies Gaelic Football activity and development.
