“My First Gaelic Football Match” and “My First Hurling-Camogie Match” are newly-published GAA-themed picture books. Based around the central characters of Senan Mc Coy and Kayla Doherty, the picture books aim to inspire both a love of reading and a love for Gaelic games.

These books are available to purchase singly or as a class set. The books are also available as Gaeilge.

The publishers have put together excellent Activity Booklets to accompany the books. These would make using the picture books in class a worthwhile and educational activity. The activity booklets feature colouring sheets, comprehensions, cloze activities, writing frames, picture prompts for story writing, storyboards, SPHE activities and lots more.

The publishers GAA Books For Kids have kindly given permission for these booklets to be made available for Free on Seomra Ranga. GAA Books For Kids retains the copyright for these resource booklets. The booklets can be downloaded below.

Both the Football and Hurling/Camogie Books can be purchased for €9.95 on GAA Books For Kids
