EMPOWERING WOMEN IN SPORT
Welcome to the official website of the New York Ladies Gaelic Football Association's #EmpoweringWomen in Sport Campaign that launched in January 2022. The Aim of this campaign is to recognize and celebrate that 2022 marks 30 years of Ladies Gaelic Football in New York and how the Association has gone from strength to strength. Through our events and fundraising in 2022 we hope to:
~Facilitate growth, support & promotion of our Ladies game here in NY for both our NY Ladies County team and our underage Gaelic for Girls & Feile Teams that travel to Ireland to compete in All-Ireland Competitions
~ Empower & Support our current Ladies clubs players, coaches & volunteers by providing the resources & support needed to increase participation, match attendance & promotion of Women in Sport
~ Create space & the support required to inspire the next generation of young Irish & Irish American female GAA players in NY. Strategize for the future with a focus on playing facilities & games development
~ Celebrate the women (& men!) who were the stalwarts of getting the LGFANY off the ground and overcame many challenges to get us where we are today.
The Ladies Gaelic Football Association of New York is the largest Ladies Football Association outside of Ireland.
