Know Your Sport

Leader Board

After two false starts, 40 horses finally set off in the English Grand National on the 30-fence, four-and-a-half mile marathon & with just two obstacles to clear, Blaklion came to the front & looked the likely winner. However, One For Arthur made a late dash & was cheered home by all 26 people who correctly picked him!

Sergio Garcia won his first major title at his 74th attempt with a sudden death play-off victory over Justin Rose at the Masters. On the first play-off hole, Garcia sunk a birdie putt for victory after Rose could only manage a bogey.

4 people collected points on both events this opening weekend with the Tynan brothers leading the way along with Rita Burke & Neil Smith.

Next up is the World Snooker Championship which kicks off this coming weekend.

***Ladies Football 2017***

Hi Everyone,
As we all know the GAA season will be officially kicking-off with the Spring League next week. In the meantime, we are looking to gauge if any of you have any interest in helping out with the Ladies Football team in any way this coming year? Whether that means devoting your time to a few training sessions throughout the summer (even if that’s just to pick-up some cones, help put up nets etc.) or being a key part of our coaching/managerial team for the whole year; we would love to hear from you. Our projected numbers this year are through the roof so we’d love all hands on deck!
Please contact Mandy Doohan or Maria Eviston at to further discuss your interest and begin planning the year ahead.
Thanks a mill,
The Ladies Football Team

Ladies Gaelic Football Association Visit

The Ladies Gaelic Football Association came to Vancouver from April 22 to 28 to provide some coaching work shops and observe our club.   Here is a short note from Lyn Savage, LGFA Development Tutor, following their visit to Vancouver.

“We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you all for the warm welcome we received in Vancouver over the last few days as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  We would like to commend the club for the hard work that is taking place currently to ensure that gaelic games continues to grow in Vancouver and we hope that the support and assistance we provided will be of benefit to you into the future.”

These Tutors provided some great training to our members and observed our club for a few days, from a unique, informed perspective.  Here are the 3 key aspects of our Club that they believe we can focus on.

  1. Internal Communication
  2. Schools Project
  3. Playing Rules

If you would like to hear more about how they believe we work together on these items to improve Our Club, feel free to connect with Ronan Deane, ISSC Club Development Officer,
