One of the Most Successful Youth Sports Organisations in Ireland, Rebel Og, an exciting initiative launched in 2011. Rebel Og develops and organises Gaelic Games in Cork for players up to the age of 18yrs. Formed as part of the Cork GAA Strategic Vision, Rebel Og has revolutionised the structure and brand of underage Gaelic Games in Cork.
Rebel Og has over 230 Clubs and last year, on the Sportlomo System over 3,700 games were managed by officials.
Cian O’Brien, PRO Rebel Og works tirelessly to promote gaelic games and the Rebel Og brand. He recently instigated the redesign of the Rebel Og website. The new site developed by Sportlomo is eye catching, modern and user friendly. It is responsive on mobile and tablet. www.rebelog.ie
Rebelog.ie is an extensive site with four separate regions tied in to the parent site (Central, West, North, East). The website has long been one of the busiest sports websites in the country.
In the three months, following the launch of the responsive website. Analytics on the site registered 37,000 unique visitors and over 662,000 pages viewed (Feb-May 2017).
Most impressive and reinforcing the decision to go responsive is 65% of visitors accessed the site on mobile with 10.87% accessing the site on tablet. The decision to go for a mobile responsive website is already paying dividends.
The site boasts a 73% return visitors to the website, this is a reflection on the excellent content, updated continuously by Cian, and up-to-the-minute results, fixtures and tables across all four regions.
Rebel Óg competitions span clubs and schools, regionally organised with teams competing in Rebel Óg Central, East, North & West in Under 13,14,15,16 and minor age groups. Teams are graded based on ability ensuring balanced and fair competition.
Rebel Óg operates schools of excellence and development squads which offer players an opportunity and incentive to represent our Rebel Óg inter-county teams in the hope of one day pulling on the famous red jersey of Cork.
Another popular initiative is the Rebel Og’s Sports Awards which are in their 5th season, with over 60 monthly awards give out to date. http://rebelog.ie/content_page/10016568/ I am sure the clubs in Cork are looking forward to the 2017 Awards.
