What is the Mini All Ireland?

This is a festival of football with hundreds of children playing. TSSGFC invite children from 6 - 12 to play in a Gaelic Football tournament played over three evenings, one game each night with the finals this year taking place on Saturday afternoon. Every child plays a final and gets a medal. Each player will be nominated a county. They will get a T shirt for that county to play in it over the 4 days representing their nominated county.

When is it on?
Its on from 5.30pm to 8pm on Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th September & we are having a finals afternoon on Saturday afternoon on the 14th September. Your child will play one match each evening. No need to stay the whole evening, but of course your very welcome to. 

Where is it on?
It's on in the VEC/ETB Grounds in Terenure. 

Are Boys and Girls mixed on the teams?
