LGFA National Master Plan


Public Relations


Contact the PROs for any issues with which you may need assistance.

Adult PRO - Mary Keane 086 8579415 clareladiespro@gmail.com

Juvenile PRO - Alan Copley 087 2704491 clareladieschair@gmail.com

A good PRO does not have to be a novelist. Their main motivation is to get their club mentioned regularly on the local radio, newspapers, church newsletter etc. A brief text or email with the relevant details will get the message across. It also helps in attracting new players and recognising the efforts of the present members.

  • Promote your team by text or email

For example:

Best of luck to the Clooney-Quin ladies footballers U12s and their mentors who are training every week. Keep it up girls. From all at the club.

A brief mention on the radio is a small recognition of all the effort being put in by the panel, mentors and officers of the club.

Weekly Newspapers

Apart from providing current information for today's interested people, news paper reports are a fantastic way to preserve club history. Thanks to the early match reporters, there are match reports preserved in the Clare County Library newspaper files since before 1900. All these records are available for access by future club officers, researchers and descendants of today's players.

Writing your report

  • Keep report simple and to a reasonable length
  • Give all relevant information such as teams, scorers, referee and venue
  • Use players Christian names and surnames
  • Make sure your report is balanced - remember there are 2 teams
  • Remember your Ws - who, what, where, when
  • Keep paragraphs in sequence
  • Avoid flowery - the facts are more important
  • Mention Your Sponsor - They will be more inclined to renew their sponsorship next year if they hear / see their name mentioned regularly.
Submit a Team Photo Whenever You Can

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association has adopted a policy in relation to the use of images of players on our website and in other publications. This policy does not seek to eliminate the use of photography or video but rather to minimise the risk and threats that inappropriate use of photographs or the recording of images may pose directly or indirectly, particularly for young people. Remember having photographic and filming guidelines is not about preventing parents from taking pictures, but rather to ensure that only those who have a right to take photographs do so. - Code Of Ethics & Good Practice LGFA

  • Observe the Photography & Filming Guidelines of the Code of Ethics & Good Practice when dealing with underage players. Link to Photography & Filming Guidelines
  • Avoid taking team photos with shadows across the players face.
  • Don't be too far away when taking the team photo. Avoid photos with lots of grass.
  • Name the people in the photo but they don't necessarily have to be named Back (L-R) & Front (L-R).
