  • Big thanks to Clonduff who ran a LGFA U12 Blitz on Saturday 26 August, well done to all the girls that participated and a big thanks to Clonduff for hosting! See Facebook for photos! Burren will be running the next blitz on Saturday 2

 

  • On Monday 17 July, a great display of U16 girls took part in a mini blitz in St Mary’s, Burren. The girls from Burren, Warrenpoint, Bosco and Dundrum really enjoyed the 7s games at a time when football is hard to come by and numbers at training are low. The games were played in a great spirit of competition each team playing the other team once. Although no trophies were given out the girls displayed some great skills and athleticism. Great weather, great football, great fun! Well done girls!

 

Down U13 Academy

The U13 Academy got underway in Kilcoo on Sunday morning. A total of 48 girls from 20 different clubs turned out on the first weekend of this 6-week program, which will lead on to trials and participation in the Ulster Blitz towards the end of October. Larger numbers are expected in the weeks ahead. The commitment of the girls during the sessions to enhance their skills in Gaelic football was excellent, with great work rate and teamwork on display from all those involved. Well done girls! Thank you to all the clubs for encouraging participation in the academy and also to Kilcoo GAC for the use of their facilities. Watch this page for details of next weekend’s academy. Big thanks to Brian Devlin for overseeing and organising, great work as always Brian!
