Mixed Bag United are running a charity 8 a side tournament on Saturday May 25th 2013. The venue will be the all-weather pitch at Scarriff GAA Club. There will be a maximum of ten teams, so places are limited – apply early to avoid missing out. The teams will be divided into two leagues of four or five teams. In the first stage the teams will play the other teams in their league. Matches will last approximately 15 or 20 minutes (depending on the number of teams in the group). The top two teams in each league will qualify for the knockout stage, which will consist of two semi finals and a final. The winning team will be presented with the Iniscealtra Community Shield, which is to have their team name engraved upon it, and which they can display in a public venue of their choice for a year. A full set of rules is available upon request.

This will be a family-friendly event, with activities for under 12s running from 11am – 2pm. Light refreshments will be available.

If you would like to enter a team then contact Phil at 087 2368777. You can guarantee your place with a €50 deposit (non-refundable) to be received before Friday 3rd May. You can have up to 10 players in your team. The cost of entry is €10 per player.



Just how mixed is Mixed Bag?


This year Mixed Bag United will be celebrating our tenth anniversary. Over the last decade a huge range of people have participated in our weekly Monday night matches. In fact we’ve had representatives from:

2 genders (we’re always open to a third…)

age 8 to mid 60s (he wouldn’t tell us his exact age…)

6 continents (Antarctican players would always be welcome…)

20+ countries (too many to name, but there are plenty more to go…)


There’s also been the odd dog too!
