The profile of Ladies Gaelic Football in Ireland is at an all-time high, not least in the football stronghold of Galway. Ladies football is one of the fastest growing sports in Ireland.
Galway LGFA have recently commissioned SportLoMo to create a brand new mobile and tablet friendly website. It went live in the last week of February 2021.
Congratulations to Ann Galvin Murray and the Galway LGFA Board Committee and SportLoMo’s Mairead O’Malley and her team on a very impressive website.
This is an extensive website, with a huge reservoir of information. The website has clear navigation and looks well on mobile and tablet.
The site is fully ready for return to play (when Covid restrictions are lifted) with a section on fixtures, results and competitions.
The site has a specific area for players, clubs, coaches, referees, county, club development and webinars. There is a lot of sub-links and information under each of these sections.
The website also has the SportLoMo Club finder which is connected to GPRS so players and supporters can find directions to grounds, on their phone, on the way to matches in Galway. This Club Locator s a popular feature on our customers websites.
The News is divided into two sections (via API’s in the back-end) so visitors to the site can choose to view Club News or the County News.
The site receives a direct API feed from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. As the LGFA social media administrator adds a new item to their social media, the item is automatically (in realtime) published to the LGFA website (no work for admin). This is great for keeping the website update.
A quick way to go directly to O’Neills LGFA Galway Women’s shop is provided on the homepage.
