Gaelic4Mothers & Others

The Gaelic4Mothers & Others initiative is an innovative way to introduce mothers & other women to playing Ladies Gaelic Football. Mothers often drop their kids to training & call back to collect them, but the LGFA wants to change that. The Gaelic4Mothers & Others initiative sees women playing Ladies Gaelic Football in a fun, non-competitive & 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. Piltown Club will host a 6 week trial on Thursday’s at 8:15pm, starting this Thurs 30th May. Participants are advised that for the trial period they do so at their own risk & should take personal precautions. Comfortable runners/boots & playing gear will be sufficient initially. For more information contact 087-9230283

Used Old Clothing/ Sheets/ Blankets/Curtains/ Towels/Handbags/ Shoes

To enhance the wonderful facilities at the GAA grounds – a parish wide campaign is now in full swing to collect the items listed above so you can now de-clutter your wardrobes and other storage space for free and support a really good cause (Note: Clothing does not have to be in good condition.)

THIS IS HOW IT WILL WORK:- All players are being supplied with bags at training & mentors are currently distributing plastic bags, but ordinary black refuse sacks will do. The bags can be dropped off at the front of the GAA Complex over the next few weeks. After July 1st a bin will be placed in the car park for these items.
