Poster Competition in Eglish to Celebrate the Club Finals
Friday February 24th was a great morning spent in Roan Primary school and Derrylatinee primary school.

Congratulations to all the winners. Thanks to the both staff and pupils of the local schools for taken part and huge thanks to Leona and Kelley for giving up their time and helping to create such a buzz. Best of luck to Eglish Camogie Team in the All Ireland Club final Sunday March 5th in Croke Park. Let get out and support them. #thetoughest
Ulster Indoor U12 Blitz Meadowbank
Sunday February 26th was a big day in the calendar in Meadowbank Indoor sports arena which hosted the Ulster u12 blitz. In total 33 teams took part with over 350 girls playing over the four hours. The skill on show was outstanding and there was a wide spread of club represented. Thanks to the clubs and coaches for their attendance and support.
The annual Legends Tournament will take place this weekend in Na Fianna GAA Club in Dublin. This is the 7th year of the competition which is for past players who have retired from Intercounty Camogie. It is popular not only for the games but also for the social occasion it provides where old acquaintances are renewed. For more information on the Legends event this weekend check out the link below.
Commercials to Paint ‘Big Apple’ Red & Green
They say it is the city that never sleeps so 50 girls from Commercials Hurling and Camogie Club in Dublin will be putting that theory to the test as they head off on a trip to New York for St Patrick’s Day. The highlight of the trip will be marching down 5th Avenue in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in the club’s famous Red and Green colours. The girls will play a camogie match in Gaelic Park against Liberty Gaels from Hoboken in New Jersey on Sunday March 19th.
Their very own Jonathan Kennedy from Rathcoole has kindly sponsored the team and he will host the girls in his hostelry ‘The Long Hall’ for some ‘ceol agus craic’ and a bite to eat. It will be a fantastic experience for everyone travelling and the excitement is building day by day. And Who knows Donald Trump might turn up for a puck around!! Camogie has gone from strength to strength in Commercials since it was re-established 6 years ago. They now have over 190 girls playing camogie at all age levels in the club. There is no doubt they have set a tradition for all teams to look forward to in the years to come. Na Tráchtálaí abú!
