Gaelic for Mothers
Yet another great day for St Sylvesters as our Ladies Section hosted the inaugural G4M Blitz - 8 fields in play simultaneously - nearly 500 players from 45 clubs - take another bow guys - Declan, Brian, Angela, Gerry, Suzanne, Martin, Eddie, I'm sure Martin will give us all the details. And Hedgo fed everyone in record time back at the club. When I saw our corner back walk up the Lucan corner forward at the start of their game and say 'Hi, I'm Linda . . .' and proceed to have a chat, I knew we watching a new chapter open in the annals of Gaelic Football. The games were none the less competitive for all that, however. Long may it continue.
This Sunday from 12noon to 4pm, the Gaelic for Mothers All Ireland Blitz will take place in Broomfield with 42 teams taking part. This is a fun day for all involved on the playing field and also a huge day for St Sylvesters to profile our club and its facilities to clubs all over Ireland. The organisation of the event is in full swing at the moment, and we want all areas of the club to get involved !
The Jackies put in the performance of their lives and were extremely unlucky to lose by a point to a Cork team winning their fifth All Ireland title in a row. If only we could get this performance out of our footballers and hurlers, we would be top of the world in boith codes. Special congratulations to our own Sinead Aherne and her Naomh Marnóg colleagues Denise Masterson and Cliodhna O'Connor. You did us all proud girls. And at Broomfield on Saturday the Syls and Nmh Marnóg ladies again surpassed themselves with another excellent All Ireland 7's. Not to be forgotten are the Gaelic4Mothers from Syls who graced Croke Park and the legions of supporters who also did Dublin proud.
Lads…MOVE OVER…Gaelic 4 Mothers is on the road again. G4M is a new initiative created by the Ladies Gaelic Football Association section in Croke Park, which aims to encourage all women to become involved in sport, with some fun and fitness while learning the skills of Gaelic Football. Girls, remember all those times you had to listen to the likes of
