Mayo Senior Ladies to play Tyrone in Swinford
Mayo Ladies National League Game at Amenity Park This Sunday
Swinford Amenity Park will host a second Mayo Senior Ladies home tie in the National Football League, as Mayo take on Tyrone on Sunday. Last month Swinford hosted the opening round of this campaign against All Ireland Champions, Cork. Mayo have won the intervening two games in the National League, and will go top of Division 1 if they win on Sunday. Swinford will once again welcome two of Ireland’s leading football teams, as the northern powerhouse of Ladies Football, Tyrone, arrive in town to attempt to put a stop to Mayos gallop.
Throw in at Swinford Amenity Park is at 2pm and the Mayo girls would appreciate all of your support. Swinford Killasser Ladies Gaelic Football Club is delighted to again be chosen as the host Club for this prestigious National fixture; promoting our town as a venue for a national sports event and giving people the opportunity to witness the best Senior Ladies Gaelic footballers in the country playing in Swinford.
Swinford Killasser Ladies GFC Players Registration Evening
Swinford Killasser Ladies GFC will hold Players Registration on Friday February 27th from 6pm to 8pm at Swinford Amenity Park. Trainers and officers will be available on the evening to assist with any queries you may have. The Registration form will be available through schools, by Club email or can be got at the registration evening. We extend an open invitation to anybody who wishes to join our Club; whether you are currently playing, have never played before, wish to take up playing again after a break, or would like to help out in non-playing Club activities. While Swinford Killasser Ladies GFC has a strong history of winning County titles on a regular basis, the enjoyment of sport and the associated social activities is a priority for our Club.
Our Club has just enjoyed a phenomenally successful year in which our players broke all records by winning five County Titles. We currently have almost two hundred players from Swinford & Killasser competing at the highest club level in the most competitive ladies team sport in Mayo; which is one of the leading Ladies Gaelic Footballing counties in Ireland. Our players are coached and developed from a young age in all the skills of the game, the art of team work and above all, the respectful enjoyment of sport. Our Club was represented by no fewer than ten players on Mayo teams in 2014; with many more on Mayo Development panels.
Along with training and playing, we actively encourage players to get involved in off field activities; thus giving the players a sense of responsibility within their Club and their Community. We organise non-footballing occasions for our players; such as the underage visit to the circus and Croke Park. The annual Club Presentation Dinner Dance has now become one of the main social events for our community each year. And, every five years Swinford Killasser Ladies GFC organises a Club tour to New York. The next tour is scheduled for just two years from now, in 2017. An organising committee is currently being set up. All players from U14 to Minor in 2015 will be eligible for selection. Inclusion or exclusion on the New York Tour panel will be subject to a player’s active participation with the Club during 2015 & 2016.
As we do not want the cost of registration to be a deterrent to girls enjoying football, we will once again be subsidising registration this year. We ask all players to register on Friday the 27th of February. The amount to be paid for Players Registration is; Adult Players: €45. U12 to U18 Players: €35. U8 & U10 Players: €25. Family of three: €90 maximum. Family of four: €110 maximum.
