Galway clubs Micheal Breathnach and Kilconly were among 60 last week afforded the opportunity of playing at Croke Park last Thursday (April 13th).

60 clubs, representing 28 counties, were afforded the opportunity of playing at Croke Park on Thursday, April 13.  

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association was delighted to once again welcome budding young stars from around the country to the famous venue and the LGFA Under 10 Go Games Activity Day certainly did not disappoint, with participants leaving with memories to last a lifetime. 

All counties were given the opportunity to select two clubs to be involved but they had to show evidence of a county-organised Under 10 Go Games programme in order for this to happen.  

The lucky clubs selected from local draws arrived in huge anticipation for an exciting day ahead and despite some outbreaks of rain and hail, the weather generally held up well.  

Players and spectators were treated to some fantastic football played in a terrific spirit.  

Go Games promotes full participation and fair play, while catering for the developmental needs of the participants.  

All clubs had a panel of 15 players, with everyone having the opportunity to play in four mini games throughout a morning or afternoon session. 

Go Games rules were employed at all times and all referees were representatives of the participating clubs, along with 10 representatives from Whitehall Colmcille in Dublin.
