One of the key aims of the LGFA is to celebrate our volunteers, officials and players and create role models on and off the pitch.
Central to delivering on this is to provide safe, supportive, respectful playing and non-playing environments for everyone.
As we see other sports struggle with culture and behaviour around the match day experience, and specifically with regard to the respect shown to match officials, we are committed to instilling a culture of respect and positivity amongst our people both on and off the pitch.
The LGFA wants to encourage and celebrate a culture of positivity and mutual respect on match and meetings days. The aim is to create and deliver a campaign, that promotes and celebrates positive match day behaviour between players, coaches, referees, parents and spectators, plus officers in meeting rooms.

This toolkit is available at with full details at; https://ladiesgaelic.ie/lgfa-hub/clubs/take-a-second/ The Take a Second logo will feature at many of our key events both on pitch signage, big screen and officials jerseys.
We can all work together to ensure we respect everyone involved in our games and celebrate everything that is great about participating in Ladies Gaelic Football. We urge you to promote this campaign and display the assets in your clubs, both in buildings and on social or perhaps gear, plus at county and provincial events including meetings or anywhere you feel people can benefit by taking that time to breathe – Take a Second
