Antrim Have a go day
Antrim schools were invited to attend a secondary schools blitz in Cherryvale Belfast, to provide opportunities for the girls to play more camogie. 80 girls from Aquinas Grammer, St Patricks Ballymena, St Josephs Belfast, Victoria College and Colaiste Feirste all attended the blitz. It is hoped from the enjoyable day of Camogie that more girls will join their local Camogie club as many are currently not involved at club level. Many thanks to Shane McCann Ulster GAA Active clubs co-ordinator who assisted on the day. (Missing from photo Colaiste Feirste)
