Cork GAA For All

Cork GAA For All 

Cork Sports Partnership, Rebel Og Coaching and GAA Health and Wellbeing are delighted to highlight Cork GAA For All, an exciting development. 

In line with the GAA value of Inclusiveness, this club development aims to assist GAA clubs in Cork to support children with disabilities to access their local community club and take part in adapted gaelic games. This development promotes the ethos of a community club for all. 

To kick off the development, Cork Sports Partnership and Rebel Og Coaching hosted a club briefing evening with interested healthy clubs. 

Back L-R Kevin O' Callaghan (Rebel Og Coaching), Mairéad Beausang (Healthy Club Officer Midelton GAA), Gillian Murphy (Midleton GAA), Kate Feeney (Sports Inclusion Disability Officer). Front L-R Ger Fitzgerald (Midleton GAA), Mike Lynch (Killeagh GAA), Liz Sinclair (Healthy Club Officer Killeagh GAA) and Maurice O Sullivan (Sport & Marketing Manager).

 

Following this meeting, clubs highlighted their commitment to the development and coaches from Midleton and Killeagh GAA club were identified. With the support of CARA and Rebel Og Coaching, 21 coaches participated in Disability Inclusion Training (GAA specific). This proved to be an essential component to support coaches in welcoming new players of all abilities to their club.
