Galway Hockey Club

Ladies 1st XI

The Senior Ladies Firsts and Seconds teams train together under our two Senior Ladies Coaches, Alex McQuaid and Ollie O'Connor. The Senior Firsts and Seconds are both competing in the Connacht Division 1 League.

Recently our Senior Ladies Firsts team has secured promotion to the EYHL 2 Ladies National Leauge for the 2020/2021 season.

The Galway Senior First Team have a long-standing history of success in the Connacht League, Connacht Cup and in the Irish Hockey Trophy Competition. Our Seconds Team have also been
runners-up in the Irish Challenge Cup, narrowly missing out on the title.

Numerous Senior Ladies 1sts and 2nds players continue to be selected to represent Connacht on the U16, U18, Junior and Masters Connacht teams at the Interprovincial tournaments held during the season.


Involvement in Team management: 

We are very keen to involve parents and patrons in our club, especially in the Senior section of the club. We would be delighted to hear from any persons who wish to volunteer or coach within the club!


Training Cancellations: 

Hockey will be cancelled where the club management believe the pitch or surroundings are unplayable and dangerous.


Medical Conditions: 

If you or your child has any allergies or medical conditions (that you have not already advised us of this year) please let us know by email, in advance of the first training session.

Training times

Tuesday, 7.00-8.30pm

Thursday, 7.00-8.30pm

Training takes place at the Dangan Hockey astroturf.

Training resumes after the Summer break in late August.
