Coordination of Leading Provincial Females Project


The Leading Provincial Females Programme has been devised to develop the next generation of female leaders within the Gaelic Games Family (LGFA, Camogie, GAA, Handball and Rounders) in each province and will be delivered over 12 months by experts in the fields of coaching, officiating, administration and PR/Media. This programme will enable females to get a flavour of all strands of interest rather than having to specialise at provincial level.

    • Planning with the steering group for logistics and facilitators on the project in each Province
    • Organising core leadership sessions and optional modules over the course of the initiative acting as point of contact for facilitators and participants
