Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others

18/Aug/2014

Cloone GAA is launching a promotion of the new and very popular GAA initiative Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others. The Gaelic 4Mothers & Others initiative is an innovative way to introduce mothers and other women to playing Ladies Gaelic Football. Mothers often drop their kids to training and call back to collect them, but this initiative is an effort to change that.

The Gaelic4Mothers & Others initiative involve women playing Ladies Gaelic Football in a fun, non-competitive and social environment. Gaelic 4 Mothers & Others provides an opportunity for women to get their recommended weekly exercise in a fun way while meeting other mothers in the community.

The initiative has proved hugely popular with women of all ages and has taken off in all 32 counties with success stories popping up all over the country. There is one provincial blitz organised in each province every year and one National blitz day which have been a huge success with between 900 and 1000 mothers participating in the National Blitz Days each year. In order to get started there will be an information meeting next Thursday evening at 7-30 pm in the Club house at the GAA grounds. At this meeting there will be officers from another club that is already up and running, who will provide information on getting started and outline the social involvement and enjoyment that can be derived from participating. The club is inviting all interested mothers and others to come along and find what is involved and while you might not be interested now when you hear of all the benefits and the enjoyment from being involved, it might whet your appetite for the big ball game. All interested mothers and others please come along on Thursday evening at 7:30 pm.
