Camán to Croker 2019 – Fun in the Sun
On a sun-drenched Easter Monday, 1200 girls, along with their mentors, supporters and mascots, made the journey to Croke Park to take part in Camán to Croker 2019.
This Under 12’s development initiative gave the chance to 64 clubs from across the island of Ireland to take to the pitch in Croke Park and represent their club with pride through playing the game of Camogie. Each club played 3 games with super skills on show throughout the day. 21 clubs came from Leinster, with 14 from Connacht, 11 from Ulster and 18 from Munster.
