Tyrone LGFA are running a FUNdamentals Coaching course on Saturday 15th June (venue to be confirmed). The course is a mix of theory and practical elements.

All participants must be 16 years or older.

To reserve a place on this course please contact Club Secretary Tony Mc Gonigle or Coaching Officer Paul Philips by 9pm this Saturday.


It is hoped the Club can field a Ladies U-12 team this year and the Club is currently seeking anyone, male and female, suitably qualified (or willing to take the appropriate coaching courses) from within the Club to manage the team for the coming season.

If you can give up a few hours a week to help out please contact Ladies Youth Officer Gemma Coyle no later than Friday 7th June.

Unfortunately if there is no one to coach the team then the Club will be unable to field Ladies U-12 team this year.


Applications are now open for all those wishing to attend this year’s Michaela Foundation Camps and Campa Chormaic. Check out their respective websites for more details and application forms.
