Fantastic result, congratulations especially to the Gaels lads on the team Orin Walsh, Conor Mc Namara, Richard Walsh, Joey O Malley, Gustavo Rodriguez, Tim Lambe, Aodha Hession and Dylan Horan



Registration is a must for the year ahead. In order to play any match, friendly or competitive, each player must be properly registered, particularly for insurance reasons. Unfortunately we cannot allow a player who is unregistered to play a match. To that end, all Squad members must be registered. We have a list of those currently registered and will be asking those that are not to register as soon as possible.. If you have any doubts about whether your daughter is registered or not, please contact your coaches.


Communication to Parents

Communication will be via text messages, emails, and notes at training. We would please ask that you provide us with your phone number and email address so that we can make sure that you receive all communications we send out, if you have not done so already.
