THE LEINSTER GAA ROADSHOW ROLLS INTO BELLEFIELD & COURTOWN

Leinster GAA Roadshow

The Leinster GAA Gaelic Games Roadshow is a mobile games based activity unit designed to enhance the promotion of gaelic
games in our Clubs, Schools and Communities. It is unique because of the
modified and novel GAA specific equipment that will ensure that each
participants experience is fun, enjoyable and leaves a lasting memory.

The Roadshow hits Bellifield this Friday 3rd at 11 am and Courtown Cricket Grownds this Saturday the 4th from 11am to 4pm.  To register your team please contact Kevin Kennedy 087-7678524 or Marian Doyle for more information

Roadshow’s main attraction will be the presence of Europe’s largest 45m x 30m
inflatable Go Games pitch designed in such a way to help boys and girls play our
games in a truly unique and fun environment. In addition to the pitch two
inflatable stand alone goals will be on offer with targets to enhance the
promotion of the GAA U Can Skill Awards. These goals can also be used for normal
games. As part of the overall package Handball and Rounders activities will be
included.

The
mobile and accessible nature of the Leinster GAA Gaelic Games Roadshow means it
will be available in a number of settings during school time, after school in
local communities and during school holidays where larger grounds and centres of
excellence give huge scope for all clubs to get an opportunity to experience the
project. Outside of this opportunities
will exist at games to enhance families match day experience and festivals. It
is planned that the Roadshow will be trialled initially at selected Easter Camps
around the province and will go operational towards the middle/end of April at
which point the venues selected and schedule will be available on
www.leinstergaa.ie.
‘Leinster GAA is delighted to have pioneered such an innovative and
wonderful project, the first of its kind in Ireland. I would expect clubs and
schools will be queuing out the gates to get the chance to experience Go Games
in such a novel environment. If this means more children getting the opportunity
to play our games well that will be a wonderful success and a nice headache for
us. The attractiveness of the roadshow will definitely help us make an impact in
areas where participation could be higher’ said Martin Skelly, Chairman of
Leinster Council.
‘The Roadshow is big, its bright and hugely impressive said Dave
Kavanagh, Chairman of Leinster Games Development Committee. He went on to
say…..It’s a flagship project and one we hope will raise the profile and
compliment coaching and games development activities currently ongoing in the
province. I’ve no doubt it will have a huge impact wherever we bring it to and
will help raise awareness of Go Games – which is to get more children playing
our games, more of the time. I suppose ironically we don’t know where or how far
the roadshow will take us and this will be determined by demand over the next
few weeks which will ultimately dictate our schedule and format of
delivery.’
