The annual Congress of Cumann Cam¾gaÝochta na nGael will take place at the Abbey Court Hotel, Nenagh, Co. Tipperary on Friday/Saturday March 27/28.


This is Liz’s final Congress as Uachtarßn marking the end of a hugely successful three-year tenure and the fact that it is being held in Liz’s home town is of immense pride to her.

Liz, who played camogie with her native Tipperary and Dublin, held various administrative posts in Camogie before going on to become PRO of the Tipperary GAA Board. She was GAA analyst on the first RT+ showing of the Sunday Game having previously worked on Sports Stadium and other sports shows.

Liz returned to Camogie in 2003 with President Miriam O’Callaghan. She served as a member of the Management Committee and was elected as Uachtarßn at Congress in Tullamore in 2006 – making her the first Tipperary person to be elected as President of the Camogie Association.

There are many highlights to Liz’s term as President:

Only this week Liz saw the launch of the Coaching Education Courses – the Foundation Course æCamßn Get a Grip’ and the Level 1 æCamßn get Hooked’. She has also overseen the revitalisation of the game in counties like Mayo, Kerry, Donegal and Sligo, while all over the country the standard is increasing all the time. The bar was set by her own senior Premier County in the early 90’s.

Another major achievement during her presidency is the playing of the All Ireland U21 hurling final alongside the Gala All Ireland Senior and Junior Camogie finals in Croke Park. Also, Gala coming on board as sponsors of the All Ireland senior championship in 2006 and the junior championship in 2007 was another highlight for the President.

She has seen the administrative structure in Croke Park grow, with 12 people now working for the Association from five when she took over as President. There is one more full time position to be filled. The new O’Duffy Cup was also

d with a magnificent new one two years ago.

Funding from the Irish Sports Council has increased during Liz’s term. Also of great joy to the Uachtarßn is the activity day allocated to Camogie in Croke Park during the summer – this is used for Coillte U14 Development Squads.

Recently, Liz oversaw her third Media Awards, which are sponsored by RT+ and are held in conjunction with the late Mick Dunne.

Congress dinner will be held on Saturday night in the Abbey Court Hotel.

Congress weekend begins with a Civic Reception hosted by Nenagh Town Council at 6pm on Friday.
