Tailteann Nua Ladies Gaelic Football Tournament
Intermediate All Ireland Club Championship Winners Parnells Ladies Football Club are going to be joining us on campus from August 2 – 5, 2013. The Parnells added an all Ireland trophy to their list of achievements in 2012 when they beat the Munster Champions, Cahir of Tipperary. Women’s teams from the UK and worldwide are invited to join in a ’round robin’ tournament over the weekend of the Festival to compete for the inaugural competition of the Tailteann Nua Cup.
The Tailteann Nua Cup goes in search of teams… Representatives from the University of Limerick travelled to an International Tournament held at the Emerald GAA Grounds, London last week, to show their support for the Limerick Exiles, who were sponsoring the tournament. They also took the opportunity to promote the Tailteann Nua Cup tournament, which is taking place at the University on the August Bank holiday weekend. Teams are invited from Ireland, Britain and Europe to play in this inaugural 9-aside competition, which is to be held on the 3rd & 4th August as part of the Tailteann Nua Festival. With world class sports facilities and superb accommodation, the University is the ideal venue to host such an event.
A full programme of activity is being provided for the weekend, so teams
are guaranteed great entertainment with lots of craic!
