In Pictures: Laois Ladies football club get on board with 20×20 drive

One Ladies football club has firmly got behind the 20×20 campaign by hosting an event recently.

Timahoe Ladies, Laois’s most success Ladies football club, were in Stradbally GAA recently for a series of blitzes and games aimed at promoting their sport.

20×20 is about creating a cultural shift in our perception of girls and women in sport.

By increasing visibility of women’s sport it will become a greater part of who we are and what we follow. There is already so much to celebrate when it comes to women’s sport in Ireland, but there isn’t enough noise.

The initiative seeks to change the subliminal bias in the Irish psyche that exists around girls and boys, or women and men, when it comes to sport.

Timahoe Ladies PRO Yvonne Hennessy said: “We are supporting the 20×20 campaign.

“Our senior girls have also pledged to help out at underage training to alert our underage cohort that women in sport are important and we as a society must value it just as much as men in sport.

“Our senior girls are excellent role models and we need to bridge the gap between underage and adult football for our club.”
