Connacht Development News
All coach education courses have now been completed in Connacht for spring 2019.
Almost 200 coaches have now completed the foundation courses and Level one courses from all three counties. This is hugely positive for Connacht Camogie.
Just a word of thanks to each and every participant who took part, to our tutors, to the venues for facilitating the courses and to the county development officers and county secretaries for taking all the bookings.
Well done to all coaches who completed coach education or upskilling workshops in the past few months. Hopefully now you can put it into practice in the coming weeks of action in clubs and counties.

Mayo camogie continues to grow from strength to strength with many new schools coming on board at primary school level. In total 19 schools took part in Cumann na mBun Scoil events over the past 12 months. This number has been steadily rising and it is a credit to all the good work that is currently going on in Mayo.
A beginner’s school blitz was held on the Astro turf pitch in Castlebar on April 30th which saw almost 50 girls from 4 beginner schools taking to the field to play a blitz. The schools who took part were Cloonlyon NS, Straide NS, Meelick NS and Fahy NS. Thanks to Adrian Hession for his assistance in organising the event and to everyone involved.
