PPS Leinster Launch Set for Thursday!   05/11/2018

This Thursday, Leinster LGFA in association with Official Sponsors LIDL are launching the 2018 Post Primary Schools Competition 2018/19 in Áras Laighean, Portlaoise. Proceedings are due to get underway at 7:15pm.

Leinster LGFA are delighted to announce that special guests on the night will be LGFA Uachtarán Marie Hickey and All Ireland winning Dublin footballer Sinéad Goldrick.

The number of schools participating in the Leinster LGFA Post Primary Schools competitions has increased exponentially in recent years. There are over 300 teams taking part in the Senior and Junior competitions. The U14 competition will commence after Christmas with the predicted number of teams competing to rise above 150.

In all sixteen schools were crowned Leinster Schools Champions across the three grades Senior, Junior and U14. Last year, Scoil Chríost Rí were crowned Senior A Champions, were runners up in the Junior A Final and were victorious in the U14 A competition. The Laois outfit will surely be in the mix once again this year.

We are hugely indebted to the coaches and teachers who work alongside the school teams to allow the players succeed in their extra-curricular endeavours.

Lidl are serious about doing everything they can to grow awareness and support for Ladies Football and women in sport right across the country.

Lidl believe that Serious Athletes Deserve Serious Support and so the tagline for the sponsorship in 2016 was #SeriousSupport followed by #SeriousStartsHere in 2017. An incredible 145 Post Primary schools received Jerseys and equipment as a result of LIDL sponsorship.

We look forward to a wonderful evening on Thursday as we look to the future and continuing our development of schools' football!
