The New York Ladies Gaelic Football Association's #EmpoweringWomen in Sport Campaign launched in January 2022. This campaign aims to recognise and celebrate 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. Strategise 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.
Your donation will help to grow the Ladies Game here in New York; support our Ladies County team that travels to compete in the All Ireland Championship each year. It will also help us support our underage girls and help us achieve the greater goal of having better access to playing facilities in New York and promote our Association widely. Through this campaign, we hope to empower every player, volunteer and supporter involved with the LGFNY and continue connecting and strengthening our Irish diaspora.
