The Camogie Association is pleased to announce that following engagement with the GPA, the player protest will be suspended.
Hilda Breslin, Uachtarán of the Camogie Association said: “We welcome this breakthrough. It will enable the unhindered progression of the Glen Dimplex All Ireland Championships. Our semi-finals this weekend and our finals on 6th August will be the centre of attention and we look forward to wonderful games. We are committed to working with players and other stakeholders to continue to improve and expand the player welfare supports currently in place in a very fair and evidenced based manner.”
The Camogie Association formally engaged with the GPA in mid-June on player supports and undertook to work with the GPA to examine the issues and respond. In this context the Association were determined to continue to engage constructively, based upon our shared commitment to player welfare and passion for Camogie. We have now agreed a positive way forward to meet the player welfare needs of our inter county camogie players ahead of the 2024 season. This will entail further research and collaboration in putting in place a Player Charter for 2024. We will work with the GPA to grow the resources and funding available to the Camogie Association to support the implementation of this Charter.
The Camogie Association reaffirms its commitment to player welfare and continued collaboration with players and other stakeholders to further improve supports in advance of the 2024 season. We will continue to work to grow the resources and funding available to the Camogie Association to support the implementation of this Charter.
The Camogie Association would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers and members for their patience and commitment to supporting Camogie throughout this process.
We look forward with great excitement to our Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Championship Semi Finals taking place this weekend and our All Ireland Finals in Croke Park on August 6th. We wish all the players and counties well and encourage everyone to come out and show their support.
