Speaking about the announcement President of the Camogie Association Joan O’Flynn:
“Assisting county board and club units to build and improve facilities to provide the best possible platform for the development and promotion of camogie is of paramount concern to the Association.
Despite the challenging economic circumstances, it is of significant importance that funding is made available to invest in our county and club units.
The applications to the Capital Funding Scheme were extremely competitive and of an impressive standard. It also provided an excellent snap shot of the huge commitment of volunteers at county and club level to promoting and developing camogie in their respective areas and the level of foresight and planning which goes into this.”
