Gaelic4Girls coming to St Monica's

HISTORY for the magical Mons of Edenmore. Next Saturday sees the area's first Gaelic4Girls Programme.

St Monica's are hosting the event. It will begin at noon and run for eight Saturdays.

At €8 for the eight weeks, it's the best value in town. It is aimed at girls between the ages of 8 and 12 who are not registered with a ladies Gaelic football club.

They will all get certificates and a T-shirt at the end of the programme when a mini-blitz will be held against another Gaelic4Girls academy. This is always a highlight.

"It is all about fun and participation," explains Patricia Monahan. "It's an introduction to football in a non-competitive environment.

"We'd encourage all girls in Edenmore and the surrounding areas to come along. It's a great way of making new friends and learning a new sport."

At the conclusion of the programme, the players will be encouraged to register with St Monica's, where they will be integrated on the existing teams."
