Kerry Ladies Gaelic Football Association is literally going to the dogs.

On the 25th of May both club and county have joined forces to create a unique fundraiser at the Kingdom Greyhound Stadium for the betterment of ladies football in Kerry.

Vincent Murphy Sports as Sponsor

Meanwhile, Kerry LGFA welcomed Vincent Murphy Sports, Killarney Road, Castleisland as equipment supplier and official sponsor of the senior county league in Kerry.

“We would like to thank Gerard and Vincent for their contribution to date and we look forward to a successful year of partnership with them and on the field of play,” according to the bulletin from the association.

Funds Distributed Evenly

All funds raised from the May 25th event will be distributed evenly between club and county teams ensuring the growth of club football and the participation of county teams at inter-county level.

With a ten-card race on the night there promises to be a host of other activities to appeal to all the family from music, raffles, face painting, bouncing castle and a club relay race.

An Added Incentive

The club relay race will consist of a team of four from each club racing against other clubs in their club jerseys adding a novel race to evenings proceedings.

There is an added incentive for the clubs who sell the most tickets of having their affiliations fees paid for 2020 season along with four O’Neill’s footballs for that club.

Senior Ladies in Attendance

The senior team will be in attendance on the night for fans to meet their heroes and a chance to get autographs and photographs taken.

Tickets can be sourced from your club and if any businesses would like to place an advertisement in the race programme, they can do so by contacting Anthony or Paul. Advertisements costs start at €100 for a full page and €50 for a half page.
