Up to 40 girls turned out on the day to be trained in the skills and fun of camogie, under the watchful eye of Jenny Duffy, Regional Camogie Development Co-Ordinator South Leinster of Cumann Camogaiocht and her colleagues.
“”We had a great turnout and hope to field at least two juvenile teams and a junior team,”” said Deirdre O’Flynn, chairperson of Carnew Emmets Camogie Club. “”This summer, we intend to build on the skills of our players and coaches so that we’re fully ready for competitive games next year. In the meantime, we’re going to link up with local clubs to arrange blitzes and friendly games as we build up our skills base.””
The Fun Day was also attended by Dave Murray, chairperson Wicklow Camogie County Board; Breda Byrne, Camogie Development Officer, Wicklow Camogie County Board; Fr Martin Casey, PP Carnew; and Tim Balfe, chairperson Carnew Emmets GAA Club.
“”We’ve received great support from the Camogie Association and Carnew Emmets GAA, without whom we wouldn’t have got to this stage, not to mention the commitment of our own committee,”” said Deirdre. “”From here, we’ll be calling on parents and the community to support us to get girls involved in this great team sport.””
Next training on Monday, June 7 @ 6.30pm-8pm in Carnew GAA Sportsfield.
