Brian Molloy Uachtarán of the Camogie Association said:

“Our UNESCO recognised national sport Camogie has been played in Ireland back through the mists of time, but 2024 is a particularly big year for the Camogie Association as we celebrate 120 years since our formation as a National Governing Body.

We have many plans to celebrate our 120 years including; our fabulous commemorative jersey and our Camán to 120 blitzes across the country, where we’ll have 3,000 under 12’s participate. It’s great to see so many young people take an interest in the game and we hope that continues to grow.

We’ll also host our own Gala Ball in the Lyrath Hotel in July and we’re inviting clubs internationally and across Ireland to take part in the 120 celebrations in their own unique way. Finally, we’re very much looking forward to this year’s final stages of the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Camogie Championships.”
