Sligo Notes 11.03.2013

The sites for the 2013 Gaelic4Girls programme were today confirmed by the Ladies Gaelic Football Association. 43 clubs were chosen to host the initiative throughout the coming months in 27 counties.  There were several entries from Sligo but Eastern Harps and Owenmore Gaels were the chosen elite for Sligo.  This is an excellent opportunity for both clubs to boost the numbers of girls playing within their club and help to integrate those new players in a safe and nurturing environment. Clubs will also have the opportunity to up skills for their coaches as the LGFA provides free training to coaches and Co-Ordinators.  Congratulations and best of luck to both Clubs.


The Sligo Sports and Recreation Partnership are holding a “Code of Ethics” course on March the 11th from 6.30 to 9.30pm in the Embassy, Sligo.  All new and existing members holding a position where they are mentor over a team or a senior role within the club or County Board are encouraged to attend this course.  Please contact your club secretary for an application for this Course.  (Places fill up quickly so don’t delay)


Last year the Sligo County Board launched a new fundraising initiative in association with the Carers Association of Ireland.   A ribbon has been specially designed with both logo’s for St. Patricks Day. This ribbon will be on-sale all over Sligo in selected outlets and will sold on the streets in the weeks coming up to St. Patricks Day.  Each ribbon will cost €2.  The proceeds will be split with the Ladies association and with The Carers Association.   All clubs have been given there portion of Ribbons for 2013 to sell and they will be actively selling them over the coming weeks, so your support will be greatly appreciated.
