Founded in 1974, Ladies Gaelic Football is one of the fastest growing sports in Europe with over 190,000 registered members. With over 1000 clubs in Ireland and membership growing by the day, Ladies Gaelic is reaching women and girls from all over the country.

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association provides a social outlet and a healthy activity for thousands of people around the world.
