Monaghan Camogie Notes

The ulster Camogie elite camp

Well done to Rachel Markey Castleblaney and Karen Boyle Clontibret who have been selected to take part in the above camp,
The camp is for the Best 90 – U15 Camogs and Ladies Footballers in Ulster.  It is funded by the Ulster GAA Council as part of its ongoing Integration Program and acts as massive stepping stone for underage development at such a crucial time in a player’s career.
The players are put through an intense programme by the Sports Institute Staff, the Ulster GAA and Camogie Coaches, they get to make use of the superb facilities at the Institute including the new Strength and Conditioning department and 3G indoor Pitch.
The Programme the players undergo includes:
ò    Nutrition/ Hydration and Lifestyle Management
ò    Movement Competencies and Core Stability
ò    Injury Prevention, Dynamic Warm-up and Flexibility
ò    Fitness Testing
ò    Skills Assessment and Development
ò    Small and Full Sided Games under Heart Rate Monitoring
ò    Leadership Skills
ò    A Talk from an Invited Speaker

 “”The Programme the girls receive is superb; basically they are treated like a professional athlete for 2¢ days.  The coaching and experience is second to none, I’m not saying it’s easy for the girls because each evening they are completely drained.  It’s a great opportunity to see what it actually takes to get to the top.  No one is saying you have to go through the camp to make it as an Inter-County Star but it certainly will not hinder you.””

Inniskeen Camogie notes
The team are picking themselves back up after their Championship defeat , training continues every Monday and Thursday  and our trainer Shane Darcy is putting in a big effort with the team ,whilst he may have come on board a little late for the c’ship his intentions are very strong for the League.
Every best wish goes to the very popular Sarah Flynn as she represents the club in the æ’ Raglan road Festival Queen competition æ’
Well done to the footballers reserve team who drew with Monaghan harps last weekend 

The news from Lisdoonan /Donaghmoyne is that great interest is been shown at training every Thursday, long may this continue and hopefully Monaghan will see the birth of a new club next year, any girls wishing to join in the fun just come along to the pitch any Thursday evening 

Truagh Camogie 21st. July æ08


Truagh  have gained  4 points in the League this season when they defeated Castleblayney and Clontibret but lost out to Inniskeen in the first round. Our next match in the second round takes place on Wednesday 23rd.July, when we travel to Clontibret and hope to collect two more valuable points.


Training has intensified in the past week, having gained a place in the Championship Final when we defeated Castleblaney on Monday week last. We take on Clontibret who were last year’s winners.


Training continues on Tuesdays at 7pm.
