The day was part of a pilot social inclusion project organised by the Camogie Association to coincide with the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue and was funded by the Irish Sports Council and South Dublin County Council.  50% of the girls participating in the project came from countries as far a field as Bosnia, Iraq, Somalia and the Philippines.  The girls received top class coaching from Director of Camogie Development Mary O’Connor, Camogie’s Regional Development Co-ordinators and local GPO’s. 

Liz Howard, President of the Camogie Association, “”I am delighted to welcome the children from the primary schools in Lucan here today.  Together you bring a variety and richness of culture from your various backgrounds that makes up the diverse society that is Ireland today.  I hope that this is the start of something wonderful and that girls from all nationalities will enjoy the day and continue to play camogie.””

At the end of an action packed day each young camogie player received a commemorative medal, hurley and sliotar from Liz Howard President and Deputy Mayor Keating.
