Coach the Coaches

We are delighted to announce the formation of a GAA football skills initiative for boys and girls with special needs aged between 9yrs – 12yrs.

The aim is promote inclusivty within the club whilst ensuring lots of fun and enjoyment.

In order to run the sessions we will need a 1:1 coach to child ratio.

To help with this, our club Games Promotion Officer Will Lillis is going to run a coaching session for beginner coaches on Friday 2nd September from 5 - 6.30pm. Parents need have absolutely no 

coaching experience to attend the session - it will be designed to help beginner coaches.

The fun sessions will initially be rolled out as a pilot from Friday 9th September and open to club members on a first come first served basis.

If you are interested in having a child attend or you or a family member would like to get involved in coaching, please contact: Maria O Cinneide (086-1969701 or email:

Parents or Coaches interested in getting involved in coaching at the sessions please get back to us before 31st August. There is a requirement that all our coaches are GAA Garda vetted. For any 

coaches not yet vetted we can start that process on 2nd September.

Many thanks,
