This is an open session for new and old players to try out and have a kickaround. All welcome.

Australia Day - Looking a little further ahead we will be doing a Gaelic footy activity at Kingston Beach on Australia Day, Thursday 26 January. Check out the page of A Day On The Beach as there is lots on so it'll be well worth a trip down. We're looking for both people to help run the skills clinic between 9-11 and 11-1 so please get in touch if you are keen. Free breakfast :-)
Irish Festival - We also have a big trip planned in March...we're going to be at the Westbury Irish Festival! This is a fantastic day of Irish music, dancing, food, culture and now sport. The TGFHA will be running a come-and-try clinic for all ages, followed by exhibition match of Gaelic football. The times are still to be confirmed with the organisers but we will have a very good set up at the new venue of Westbury Showgrounds. The Association will be providing transport assistance to Westbury so make a day (or even weekend) of it at Westbury Irish Festival, Saturday 11 March.
