Monaghan Coaching & Games Football After School Programme 2018

Monaghan GAA Coaching & Games delivered two After school Gaelic Football Programmes in North & South Monaghan. Monaghan GAA Coaching & Games realise the importance of player development and providing pathways for young players so that they can reach their full potential.

The venues for the programme were St Macartans College for the North Programme and Patrician High School for the South Monaghan programme. These schools provided excellent facilities with grass pitches, indoor halls and all-weather pitches. A big thanks for allowing us to use the facilities.

There was 70 boys registered for the North programme and 48 boys registered for the South Programme. The North programme catered for boys in 5th class while the south programme catered for boys in 6th class. For the 5th & 6th class programme the boys where introduced to the Activ8 warm-up, while also working on skill development, skill conditioned games and small sided indoor gaelic.


Also, this year the cost of the programme was €10 which resulted in them receiving a training top on the last week as seen in the photo’s. The tops went down a treat with the boys.

Big thanks to the boys who attended and made the after school programme a huge success. The enthusiasm these boys have to improve themselves and play Gaelic football was evident over the 4 weeks and brilliant to see. We look forward to working with them over the next number of years.

Also, a huge thanks to the parents who brought and collected them on time each week, while also signing them up for the programme. We hope they really enjoyed it.


Thanks to the St Macartan’s & Patrician TY’S who helped out over the 4 weeks with the after school programme. With the huge numbers registered there help was very much appreciated.
