Carlow-based video-monitoring security company Netwatch has announced its sponsorship of the Carlow County LGFA’s under-14 girls’ squad today, International Women’s Day.

Netwatch is no stranger to Gaelic sports partnerships in Carlow having sponsored Netwatch Cullen Park, the home of Carlow GAA, for the past ten years.

Laura Murphy, Netwatch Senior Marketing and Communications Manager was at the launch of the new kit with the squad.  She said the company was keen to show support to ladies in sport and to especially help encourage greater involvement of young girls in sport.

According to research by Sport Ireland*, the majority of girls tend to label themselves ‘not sporty’, with just 12% of 12- to 13-year-old girls meeting recommended activity guidelines for their age, which then drops to 7% for 14- to 15-year-olds.

“We are excited to take the first step in Netwatch’s support of the LGFA and this generation of girls in the development programme. We hope our support will encourage this group of talented young players and inspires other girls to get involved in this and other sports.” said Laura Murphy.
