In the News

Thank you Aisling Nig Ruairc and Joyce Lamb!

Hi Mia and Alison,

Below is a link to an interview Aisling did about her project Keep Your Girls Playing which she has been rolling out since September with the coaches, parents and 12-13 year old girls in our local GAA club:

There has been very positive feedback from the wider GAA community about her interview and she’s been happily recommending your book to any of the coaching educators that have been in contact. Hopefully you might get a few more book orders from Ireland!

Wishing you both a very Happy New Year.

Kind regards,

Joyce and Aisling

Cuala teenager showing how to keep girls playing Gaelic Games by John Harrington

And her ‘Keeping Girls Playing Project’ is having such a positive impact in Cuala that it will hopefully give other clubs some really helpful food for thought as to how best to keep girls involved in team sport.

“When I was researching this I came across a survey saying that one of two girls will drop out of team sport by the age of 13 and are three times more likely to give it up than boys are.

“It kind of shocked me at first because I know from my own personal experience of all the benefits that come from playing team sport.

“But when I thought about it made sense because my own team lost around half of our players by the time we were 13 and struggled to field a team at that age.
