Gaelic For Girls U14s Team Win Tournament

Yesterday was a fantastic day for the future of Gaelic Football in St. Albans and Hertfordshire.

The Gaelic for Girls training program that is underway at St. Colmcilles got their first competitive outing in a tournament held in Cotlandswick that contained 2 teams from London and 2 teams from Claddagh Gaels in Luton.

After 5 weeks of training and learning the game of Gaelic Football, the new St. Colmcilles U14s Girls team were delighted to get out onto the pitch to try out their newly acquired skills.

They absolutely hit the ground running as they won all 3 of their matches. It was great to watch as all of the players, some of whom had never played, or even watched, football until recently, took to the game naturally and scored some brilliant goals and points.

The girls will be out again in three weeks in another mini tournament before its off to the All Britain Championships in July. In the meantime, training continues Monday evenings from 7pm to 8pm at the St Albans Irish Club (AL2 1DW).

A big well done to all the players and also to the manager Neil and coaches Ellen, Eilís and Laura who were awesome yesterday and a massive thank you to Active St Albans who support the Gaelic for Girls program at St. Colmcilles.

Colmcilles Abú!!
