Clonard Ladies GFC recently held their presentation night for the U10 and U12 girls in Clonard Community Centre during which the girls were presented with their well-deserved medals for an outstanding year by Wexford Senior Ladies/Clonards Number 1 Goal Keeper Natasha Walsh and her Senior team mate Aoife Tormey.

MC for the night was Coach Brendan Rochford who thanked the girls from all the teams, parents, family and friends for their continued support which has helped Clonard Ladies to grow the club successfully for another year.

2016 will be another busy year for the town club as they cater for young girls from U6, u8, U10, U12, U14, U16, Clonard/Volunteers cater successfully for minor and adult football.

For the first time Clonard Ladies will host The club nursery programme in the juvenile section of our club. Clonard coaches feel it is important to give girls the opportunity to participate in Ladies Gaelic football from an early age.

The main aim of a nursery programme is to introduce children aged 4 - 9 years of age to Gaelic Football in a fun, safe and relaxed environment. The ethos of the nursery is 'to learn skills while having fun.' This programme will be run in May.

The club will also be hosting The Gaelic4Mothers&Others initiative as it 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, this 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, however, this is not just for mothers as anyone can come along and join in the sessions.

This initiative from LGFA allows the team to play in a Provincial and National Blitz days. For more information on Clonard Ladies training sessions for all age groups please contact Suzanne @ 0866063488 or Denise on 085 1397986.
