Queensland Gaelic Football and Hurling Association are determined to provide opportunities for young men and women to play Ireland’s national game here in Queensland. We are hoping that this will be the first step of developing and strengthening an underage structure that will see us compete at National Championships for years to come. Your son can assist us in developing a new generation of young players, playing a game that you will all come to love.
We appreciate that this is a very busy time for students at school, and also acknowledge that many families may have prepared holidays for September. Whilst it is not ideal to have left our notification till this stage, we are willing to work with families to ensure the participation of their son/s. I would encourage you to discuss any queries or concerns that you might have about the above arrangements.
