Bennekerry/Tinryland will take part in the upcoming Chill Insurance All Ireland Ladies 7-A-Side Competition at Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club in Stillorgan, Dublin.

In total, 32 teams from 25 counties will be taking part in the competition on Saturday, September 14.

Bennekerry/Tinryland will be the only team in Carlow taking part in the tournament.

Marie Hickey, Uachtarán, Cumann Peil Gael na mBan attended the launch of the Chill Insurance All Ireland U/14 Sevens at Kilmacud Crokes on Tuesday.

Marie Hickey noted that events such as the Kilmacud Crokes U14 7s help to promote all that is good about Ladies Football, and she reflected upon the positive and supportive feedback from supporters attending the games.

"This is very much in line with the messages of positive encouragement for players coming from coaches and mentors of the various teams," Marie said.

"This is the very essence of Ladies Gaelic Football and the Kilmacud Crokes All-Ireland U14 7s will see many photographs being taken, capturing beaming smiles, and images of opposition players embracing and shaking hands.," she added. 

Marie Hickey added that she hopes to see all teams participate in the competition with great determination, but with a spirit of respect for others. 

Above all, the LGFA President stressed the over-riding importance of players enjoying themselves on the day. 

2019 will see top teams competing at the Chill Insurance All Ireland U14 7s Competition, including defending champions St Ergnat’s Moneyglass from Antrim, and the national Féile champions Claregalway from Galway. 

Games will commence from 10am in Páirc De Búrca Glenalbyn, Silverpark and Naomh Olaf, with the Plate Final at 4:45pm and the Cup Final at 5:30pm in Páirc De Búrca.
