Castlehaven Ladies GAA

Castlehaven Ladies GAA club was established on the 17th June 2103. It was decided that after running a very successful Gaelic 4 Girl’s course with over 50 girls ranging in ages from 6-12 attending, that the interest was sufficient to found our own Ladies Gaelic Football club. Over 30 people attended the inaugural meeting where there was overwhelming support for the foundation of a ladies club. John McCarthy chairman of the West Cork Board preceded over the election of officer, Martina Burns' fixtures, secretary of the West Cork Board was also in attendance and offered very positive support. Vincent and Sheilann O’ Neill of O’Neill Landscaping generously sponsored our first set of jerseys which have been widely admired.

The first club foray into competitive football began in the summer of 2014 where the u12 team competed in the West Cork league. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and some great performances were displayed throughout the summer, the highlight being a home win against Rosscarbery.

We had some great experiences during our first year and we were honoured as a club to establish and host an U10 Blitz in Memory of Eilish Collins which will become an annual event held in September. The Club also had a very exciting experience on Sunday 28th September 2014 when our U10’s were selected to play an exhibition match in Croke Park at half time during the Ladies All Ireland Final.

The future looks very bright for the club as we now have U12, U14, U16 and a Minor team all ready to compete competitively. Our U8’s and 10’s have been entered into an all-Ireland Blitz’s that’s held annually in Passage West, Co Cork where 74 teams from all over the country come together and celebrate all that’s great about Ladies Gaelic Football.
