Portlaoise GAA club have an active and successful Gaelic4Mothers&Others set up out in our club grounds at Rathleague.
Training takes place on Monday and Thursday evenings at 7.30pm.
What is Gaelic4Mothers&Others?
The Gaelic4Mothers&Others initiative, sponsored by Sports Direct, 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 the Ladies Gaelic Football Association wants to change that.
The Gaelic4Mothers&Others initiative sees women playing Ladies Gaelic Football in a fun, non-competitive and social environment. Gaelic4Mothers&Others provides an opportunity for women to get their recommended weekly exercise in a fun way while meeting other mothers in the area.
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. For example in the Hurling County of Kilkenny the Conahy Shamrocks Club has attracted over 60 women to participate in the initiative.
There is one Provincial Blitz organised in each Province every year and one National Blitz which have been a huge success with 2500 participants taking part in the National Blitz Days each year.
