2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

New ‘Peil’ Ladies Football Magazine launched.

‘Peil’ Ladies Football Magazine launched.


There was no action on the field at Dr Hyde Park
on Sunday last, when the foul weather put paid
to Allianz League Semi Final between Mayo and
Armagh and the final of the Suzuki Ladies National
Football League between Cork and Galway.

Off the field though, there was major news on
the Ladies football front, with the re-launch
of Peil Magazine on behalf of Cumann Peil Gael
na Mban. Earlier this year Fr. Liam Kelleher Editor
of Marathon Athletics magazine for 21 years and
Alan Gunn of Monaghan took on the onerous task
of editing a National magazine on Ladies Football.
Judging by the reaction on the publication of
their first effort, the magazine looks like being
a huge hit with the ladies. Produced in full colour
and liberally illustrated with fine pictures and
interesting and topical articles the magazine
is a must for all lovers of sport, but especially
for those with a special interest in the fastest
growing sport in the country Ladies football.

Appropriately on a weekend which saw the opening
up of Croke Park to other sports, the opening
article is a revealing talk given by GAA President
Sean Kelly at the Ladies Football Congress at
Tyrone in March. There are interviews with The
Irish Examiner Young Footballer of Year Niamh
Fahy of Galway, Ciaran Woods of the Ulster weekly
GAA newspaper the “Gaelic Game”, Paul Swift of
the Irish News speaks his mind on the “State of
Ladies Football”. The Ulster Administrator Mary
Keegan and Connaught’s Ita Hannon are profiled.

Fr. Liam Kelleher and Alan Gunn handing
over the first issue of the new Peil, Ladies
Football magazine, to Helen O’Rourke CEO,
Cumann Peil Gael na mBan

the playing front the Post Primary Senior Schools
final gets a full feature, as does the 3rd level
O’Connor Cup weekend at Jordanstown, and the Suzuki
Ladies National Football league. There is an extensive
feature on the game at Overseas level, in London,
Warwickshire, Lancashire, Glasgow and New York.
Niamh Kindlon of Monaghan Lucozade/Sport Irish
Independent Player of the Month for march is featured.
The fixture lists for the 4 Provinces are included
as well as a report on the Annual Congress in
Tyrone. President Geraldine Giles in a special
introductory message makes a plea for support
for the magazine

“Our own magazine is important, in the further
promotion of our game and will be another source
of contact for us all with all units across Ireland
and abroad. However it will only survive on your
support. During my travels around the country
and abroad I’ve been told of the need of our own
magazine, now that it has arrived, let us ensure
that we can sustain and expand this production”

The magazine was designed and beautifully laid
out by International 400m athlete Paddy O’Gorman
from Wexford a final year student at CIT in Cork.
The magazine is very reasonably priced at €2.
