The Monaleen Gaelic for Mothers and Others squad
GAELIC FOR MOTHERS AND OTHERS: Lisseycasey recently travelled to play Monaleen G4MOs. Both teams played open football with great passing movements. We played three periods of 10 minutes each and both teams had periods where they were the stronger. It was lovely to see some familiar faces return after being away for a while. Well done to all. Gaelic for Mothers and Others(G4MOs) is played for fun. It is designed for those who have not played in the past or who have been away from the game for a few years.
We play each Wednesday evening in Monaleen clubhouse pitch from 7:00 to 8:00. We are always looking for new members. After a break we are back on Wednesday, August 14. If you would like to join simply come along on the night.
