The Gaelic4Mothers initiative is an innovative way to introduce mothers and other women to playing Ladies Gaelic Football. Mothers often drop their kids to training and call back to collect them, but the Ladies Gaelic Football Association wants to change that.

The Gaelic4Mothers initiative sees women playing Ladies Gaelic Football in a fun, non-competitive and social environment. Gaelic4Mothers provides an opportunity for women to get their recommended weekly exercise in a fun way while meeting other mothers in the area.

The initiative has proved hugely popular with women of all ages and has taken off in all 32 counties with success stories popping up all over the country for example in the Hurling County of Kilkenny the Conahy Shamrocks Club has attracted over 60 women to participate in the initiative.

There is one provinicial blitz organised in each province every year and one national blitz day  which have been a huge success with over 1000 mothers participating in the 2010 National Day.
