Ladies set to share secrets of success at skills camps

FRESH air and lots of good football ... that's the Raytown guarantee.

The first-ever Dublin Ladies Gaelic Summer Camp will take place at Clanna Gael Fontenoy.

It's for players, aged from eight to 16, who are already playing the game. It's being run in association with Elvery's.

They'll get top-quality coaching form some of the best players in the business.

Dublin goalkeeper, Cliodhna O'Connor, is co-ordinating the course, and other Dubs include Sinead O'Mahony, Fiona Hudson, Sinead Goldrick and Colleen Barrett.

Sinead Deegan is also on the roll, as is top basketballer Lindsay Peat, who helped Dublin bring home the All-Ireland in 2010.


Participants will receive a Team Dublin T-shirt. And at the end of the camp, every player will get an individual assessment.

There will also be high profile guest coaches, and the emphasis will be on fun and on improving the skill levels.

The inter-county players will discuss the discipline needed to make the grade.

There will be two one-week camps. Both run from 10am to 2.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Week one starts on July 30. Week two begins on August 20.

The cost is ¤60 for eight to 12-year-olds.

And it's ¤70 for 13 to 16-year-olds. More infofrom www.dublinladiesgaelic.ie; email dublinladiessummercamps@ gmail.com or call 085-7501619.
