15 clubs that ran successful Hurl Smart Weeks earlier this year in June have received a visit from inter-county Camogie players in the past number of weeks.
Thanks to the inter-county players who when approached by the Camogie Association to get involved in this initiative were delighted to do so. Inter-county players are such excellent role models for younger players and clubs within their county. The Camogie Association really appreciates the players taking the time to work with the chosen clubs and young players in the promotion of the game.
The players visited the clubs, coached the underage players and have also talked to them about inter-county Camogie life. Pictured above Cork Camogie players Fiona Neville and Orla Cotter visit St.Catherine’s club in Cork.
