The Irish Daily Star Leagues throw in on Sunday February 26th with Wexford bidding to record a hat-trick of Division One titles.
Wexford vice-captain Catherine O’Loughlin, Galway’s Tara Ruttledge, Waterford skipper Nicola Morrissey and Aishling Jackson of Antrim joined President of the Camogie Association Joan O’Flynn and Irish Daily Star Sports Editor Eoin Brannigan for the launch of the Irish Daily Star Leagues at Croke Park this afternoon.
This is the second year of the partnership between the Camogie Association and the Irish Daily Star.
Speaking at this afternoon’s launch President of the Camogie Association Joan O’Flynn:
“It’s great to be getting ready for another year of top camogie action, commencing with our leagues this coming Sunday. The National Leagues are of huge significance and have formed an important launching pad for future All Ireland success later in the year as shown by our current Division One and Two champions, Wexford and Waterford who secured Senior and Premier Junior titles, respectively last September.
The Camogie Association values the enormous contribution of a strong national brand like the Irish Daily Star in promoting the National Leagues.”
Ger Colleran, MD of the Irish Daily Star said:
"We at the Irish Daily Star are committed to providing the very best coverage of sport at all levels in Ireland to almost 400,000 readers.
Last season was our first year as sponsor of the Irish Daily Star Camogie Leagues and it proved to be a great success. We got a great reaction to our enhanced weekly coverage of the games and this helped cement our position as Ireland’s premier sporting newspaper.
We have enjoyed an excellent relationship with the Camogie Association over the years and we look forward to continuing this. We are honoured to be the title sponsor of the Irish Daily Star Camogie League again this year."
