St. Colmcilles’ U14 Girls Win Gaelic Football Tournament

The Gaelic for Girls training program that is underway at St. Colmcilles got its first competitive outing recently, as a tournament held in London Colney hosted two London and two Luton Claddagh Gaels teams.

After five weeks of training and learning the game of Gaelic Football, the new St. Colmcilles U14s Girls team were delighted to get out onto the pitch to try out their newly acquired skills.

They absolutely hit the ground running as they won all 3 of their matches, with some players completely new to the sport before signing up five weeks previous.

The girls will be out again in a fortnight in another mini tournament before the All Britain Championships in July.

In the meantime, training continues Monday evenings from 7pm to 8pm at the St Albans Irish Club (AL2 1DW).

“A big well done to all the players and also to the manager Neil and coaches Ellen, Eilís and Laura who were awesome yesterday and a massive thank you to Active St Albans who support the Gaelic for Girls program at St. Colmcilles,” said club PRO James Thompson.
