THE Ladies Gaelic Football Association is pleased to announce the teams bidding to become 2018 LGFA Interfirms Blitz champions.
All roads lead to Naomh Mearnóg in Portmarnock, Dublin, on Saturday, May 26, where nine companies will compete for the top prize.
In addition, 11 teams have signed up to take part in a recreational blitz, where no matter what the level, experience or ability, teams will play lots of football, socialise with each other and have fun.
Following on from last year’s successful Interfirms Blitz launch, which saw AIB crowned champions, the LGFA is endeavouring to ensure that this year’s competition is even bigger and better.
The nine companies who will aim for LGFA Interfirms glory are as follows:
Deutsche Bank, Dublin
An Garda Síochána
Baxter Healthcare, Mayo
St Kevins CC, Dunlavin, Wicklow
Irish Prison Service
The following 11 teams will take part in the recreational blitz:
Boston Scientific, Clonmel
Pramerica, Donegal (x 2)
Cadet School, Irish Defence Forces
Irish Prison Service
Pallas Food (x2)
Speaking about the 2018 LGFA Interfirms Competition, LGFA President Marie Hickey said: “There was huge interest in an Interfirms competition for Ladies Gaelic Football last year, and we were very pleased to deliver that.
“Now, we are in a position to expand and grow with another eagerly-anticipated blitz day.
“Ladies Gaelic Football is a great way for women to take up a healthy activity outside of the workplace with their co-workers.
“It will provide plenty of laughs around the office but it will also help to build morale which is so important in any working environment.
“This competition is open to players of all abilities and not just accomplished intercounty and club players and, whilst there is a trophy at stake, this is very much about participation and enjoying time in a different environment with co-workers.
“We look forward to welcoming the participating teams to Naomh Mearnóg and we look forward to some fantastic entertainment in the competitive and recreational games.”
