*History of the Club**:- *The club was established in 1992 and shortly
after the club winning the County league the club disbanded in 1995.  In
2002 the club was re-established hosting an u10 and u12 team.  At our AGM
in 2008 a new committee was elected to promote the game further and expand
the club.  At the time there were 25 players registered in the club.   With
a strong committee in place and working tirelessly to promote the Ladies
Gaelic Football –  the club promoted the game through holding open days,
targeting schools in the local and surrounding communities, recruiting
trainers, advertising in the local newspaper as well as holding a public
meeting and sending recruitment letters to all the families in the
community and surrounding areas.  The club realizes that the development of
our underage teams is vital to our club as they are our future.

In 2013 Newmarket Ladies Football Club harvested the fruit of a crop that
was planted many years ago. After years of hard work and commitment the
club has gone from strength to strength and we have waited a long time for
the accomplishments that have recently been achieved. From very humble
beginnings the club has grown in stature and shows what can be achieved
through dedication and commitment from players, trainers and parents alike.

We work in partnership with Newmarket GAA and we are very grateful to them
for our designated field slots each week and also for their flexibility in
accommodating matches and blitzes.

*Other events:*

The Club runs u8/10 and u12 blitzes with other clubs in the area
throughout the season which are great for the team morale and allows them
to increase their skill. We are fortunate to have 25 members in this
group with numbers growing each year. To maintain the fun we organize
different events such as blitzes, discos, easter egg hunts etc. Each year
our u10s head of the Passage West to the biggest blitz held in Ireland for
girls. This is a very loved event by our girls.

The club encourages their coaches to upskill and continuously run
coaching and in house development courses to train them.

We are fortunate that a lot of our junior players have completed the
coaching course and Grab your Whistle course.

Every year we organize buses/trains and travel to support the Cork
Ladies All Ireland Final. Last year we were delighted to see our own
Clodagh Walsh ref the match at half time.

medals was made by Nelius Carroll our County Board and North Cork Chairman
