Tir Conaill Harps, Glasgow

A major milestone in our 3-year plan took place on Saturday when we attended the Foundation coaching course.

Part of our plan is to increase the amount of coaches working within the club and for us to support them as much as we can so to have 15 club members attend was a massive achievement.

We now hope they can get out to help at training as much as they can, in order to develop their coaching skills.
If there’s anyone else that would be interested in coaching, please get in touch.

This week saw us running a primary school tournament in Toryglen Football Centre, which was a great success.

This tournament saw 4 primary schools taking part and we hope to expand on this over the
course of the year.

The Under 10 Football team have a tournament on Saturday at Clydebank Sports Hub between 3-5pm.

It would be amazing if we could get as many club members out to show the team the support they deserve.

Our 14-17 year old will be having a amalgamation match after the Tournament as well.

We would like to thank everyone that has been involved in organising our race night at Cambuslang Rugby Club on Saturday 23rd March.

We also would like to thank everyone who has sponsored races for the night and everyone who has bought Horses and Jockeys.

A special mention has to be made to Shaun O’Donnell who has sold all the tickets for the night, so that means our first night in our new home is sold out with 3 weeks still to go!

Youth Gaelic Football training is on Friday from 6:10pm – 7:30pm @ Merrylee Primary School, Friarton Road, G43 2PR

All children from Primary 1 through to Secondary School are welcome to come along to try Gaelic Football, 1st month free. Call or text Christina on 07977449497 for further information.
