Practically every parish has a Ladies Football Club, with as many as 3 clubs in some.

The County Board Sec would probably be happy to supply you with a List of Clubs

Her contact details are

Email kildaresecretary@gma​il.com & mobile 086 3796957

Does she not have the choice of any club, I thought the Parish rule only applied if you had registered and played with a club after the age of 12 - therefore if you are new to football or applying for a transfer from another county can register with any club in Kildare for the 1st time?

Ballygall, before committing yourself to any other you should consider the parish club Monasterevin. We are the ONLY club catering for all the girls of the parish. This year alone we have won the Feile, Senior League, Under 15 League, Under 13 league and numerous other competitions.
We also had a fantastic win in last years community games, albeit with some players from some of the other clubs. This year we won the community games basketball and did tremendously well in the gaelic, only losing out to a very strong Clane team. Our coaches are fully vetted by the Garda and most have completed the fundamentals so are well founded with modern coaching practice.
We have a thriving social scene, check out our facebook page-just search for Monasterevin GAA. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly club.

To clarify

The Parish Rule applies, so if a person is resident in a Parish in Kildare that has a club (or clubs) and they want to play football in Kildare they must play with a club in the Parish. Where there is more than one club in the Parish the player may join any of the clubs in the Parish.

I hope ballygal enjoys her football in Kildare but as a former County Board Officer it would be totally inapproprite for me to offer any advice on which of the 3 clubs she should join. They are 3 very good clubs.

As pointed out in another post, there are several grades to pick from in the parish, Ballykelly would be the strongest and the longest established.

Plenty of top class experienced players at adult level and plenty of good underage talent to back it up.

• Ladies Junior champions 2005
• Ladies U 16 champions 2005
• Ladies u 15 champions 2007, 2008, 2009
• Ladies Senior League 2004, 2008,2011
• Ladies minor champions 2008
• Ladies Junior A champions 2010
• Ladies u12 Div. 1 championship 2011
• Provided 8 players to the community games All Ireland winning u12 team 2010
• Kildare best club grounds 2011, one of only few clubs in the county that have designated ladies pitch and dressing rooms

I hope that goes some way to helping you choose

Welcome to the community ballygal i'm sure if you go around to each of the clubs to see how you would be catered for i'm sure you could look no further than Ballykelly GFC. Its facilities are top notch and its by far the club playing at the highest grade at senior level in the parish. Gerry i read with amusement your note that your club ' albeit with a few other players from other clubs' won an all ireland title last year in ladies football but i know the breakdown from all the clubs involved and i know from a panel of twenty players Monasterevin contributed 1 player to that panel so i think you are slightly off there. I think she's a little old for u13 and u15 as well and if she was she might be interested in playing at a higher level. Both Kildangan/Nurney and Ballykelly play at a higher level in these age groups as well. Anyhoo welcome to the community i'm pretty sure you'll be well looked after

Ballykelly might be the longest established, however I for one know that Monasterevin are the more progressive club. We are only established a couple of years and already we are winning competitions at all levels and grades.
We have a far more friendly set-up, most of the senior girls are involved in the underage. This year our senior team overcame Athy in the championship final-need I say more.
Ballykelly might have the dedicated pitch, however we have the players.

Well now Gerry123 that post says it all, Everyone else who commented on here did so by promoting their own, you choose to run down everyone else, I wouldn't call that progression, more like bitterness to me

With due respect to Athy, you seem to be trying to make a connection with what they are doing at men's football, Athy and yourselves contested the junior D ladies final, which you won and more luck to you.

I don't normally snipe at other clubs or their efforts as I know the amount of work that goes in by all concerned, but by Jesus I am not going to give you a free hand to snipe at mine

So if the player is Senior she has either play with one of the 3 clubs in the parish, none of which are senior - seems a bit strange espeically if your coming from a county where the club standard might be higher than Kildare.
In which case "near Kildangan" could put her in the Vicarstown parish (laois - Stradbally) or Kilberry (athy parish) - which would allow her to play in Rheban, Athy, Castlemitchell or Grange?

ballyboy I was not running down your club, far from it. You have a wonderful set of facilities, however if everything in the garden is so rosy how come so many Ballykelly players have transferred to ourselves?
I have checked re the community games team and far more than the one player you mention are member of Monasterevin,
Monasterevin are a coming force in Ladies football, why would anyone join a lesser club?

Well now I'm not going down the road you are going, all anyone has to do is read through the posts on this topic, then can then choose a level that suits their ambitions. As for the transfers, its was always obvious that as soon as ladies football started in Monasterevin some families would move, but I'm sure you expected a lot more. You have a long way to go before you catch up, but I'm sure if you work hard enough you might.

By the way, spoke to the secretary, that young lady contacted him, she's starting in the new year

I'd hate to see what you'd have to say about a club you WERE running down Gerry, because that reads like you're running down Ballykelly to me. Well done on your success, it's always good for a new club to come through, but you're being disingenuous when you say you're winning "at all levels and grades". I'm not going to bother going into the details of this because it would be construed as putting down your success and that would go against everything I believe in. I'm a huge defender of "all levels and grades".

gerry123 wrote:

Is this numerically, or in quality?So at all the age groups, from bottom up, Monasterevin would have more players? Or they'd beat Ballykelly in a game from adult (let's not call it senior, it's not accurate for either, it would be intermediate for Ballykelly and junior c for Monasterevin) down to U12?

Anyway, from what Ballyboy is saying, the girl has made her decision.

There are actually a lot of clubs between Monasterevin and Athy there now, should make for some great games if they begin to operate at similar levels

to be fair ballyboy fatherted was the first one to run down monastervin claiming they only had 1 player on some underage winning team so this drew a reaction out of gerry just like your reaction to gerry in return so lets not be picking on gerry here you do the same yourself.
also fatherted says ballykelly play at a senior grade fair play ta ogie for pointing out they play at intermediate

It's obvious from the Ballykelly posts that I have struck a nerve so I am not going to say anymore on this matter other than for Monasterevin Ladies there is only one way to go "ONWARDS AND UPWARDS".

The parish rule is one of the most ridiculous rules of any sporting organization anywhere in the developed world. Camogie, Mens football and hurling dispensed with this rule years ago. Why should anyone be confined to an area controlled by a parish priest-what has that got to do with sport.
As if this wasn't bad enough there is a proposal being considered at the moment which says that ladies must play for the club that was in the parish that consisted of the townlands controlled by a parish priest in the year 2000.
This is Father Ted stuff, you couldn't make it up.

No they did not, its just ignored in Kildare GAA, leaving many teams open to question if opponents so desired but its in the GAA Rule Book hence recent trouble in Kerry !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apoligies centreback what i meant was Ballykelly are the most senior team in the parish of course they are Intermediatebut that is the most senior team there. And i wasn't running down monasterevin as you will see from gerrys original post he seems to be claiming credit for a lot of things including basketball !!! and seems to be having a cut at Ellistown, Kildangan/Nurney and Ballykelly who all made a huge contribution to that all ireland winning team. And Gerry you might want to check your sources as well on the number of players from your club that won all ireland cos i'm pretty sure i'm right.

And finally welcome to the club ballygal i'm sure you'll enjoy plenty of success in our club, i look forward to meeting you cheers
