The Seabreeze Festival of Football took place on Saturday, the 19th of July as part of the Seabreeze Festival in Arklow.
Teams of U8/U10 girls from Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow descended on Pearse Park to partake in what turned out to be a football extravaganza. The level of skill on display from this age group was amazing. Well done to everyone involved!
Mick Healy, the AGB Ladies Chairman, thanked all who were involved in making this event a resounding success: The parents that brought sandwiches, cakes, buns, biscuits etc; all the AGB volunteers who helped with setting up, organising, refereeing, tidying up etc; the visiting teams Kilanerin (Wexford), Clonee (Wexford), Baltinglass, An Tochar, Newtown, Clonmore (Carlow )and all AGB’s own teams for taking part.
Every girl playing in the tournament received a beautiful medal for their morning’s football and most importantly, every girl went home with a smile on their face. Thank you to Eamon and Mary Burke, and Pat Fitzgerald, for sponsoring the event. Colm Moules from the Seabreeze committee addressed the large crowd. He thanked everyone for coming and thanked all the teams for taking part in the tournament. He also thanked AGB Ladies for a wonderful morning of fun and enjoyment. Well done all!!
