Mother’s Day will have a competitive edge this year, with the AIB All-Ireland Camogie Club Championships Finals taking place at Croke Park this Sunday, March 6th – the traditional day of celebration for Irish mums.
To mark the special day, the Camogie Association have announced a range of special ticket deals and are urging families and sports fans to come out and support the women taking part in the All-Ireland Club Finals.
This year’s Senior Final will see Killimor from Galway taking on Milford from Cork, while the Intermediate Final will feature Eyrecourt, also from Galway, and Cahir from Tipperary.
A special Mother’s Day ticket offer for the March 6th double-header will be priced at €25 for two adults and two juveniles. A Juvenile Group ticket offer will also be available with two free adult tickets for every ten juvenile tickets purchased.
Speaking at the launch Camogie Association President, Catherine Neary said “The level of dedication and commitment exemplified by the players from all four clubs in pursuit of All-Ireland glory must be acknowledged and commended.
“The club championships are undoubtedly one of the toughest competitions to win and occupy a special place in the hearts of all Gaelic games followers. The club is where it all begins and on March 6th communities will unite behind their sides as they represent their parishes on the biggest sporting stage in Croke Park on what is a very special occasion.”
It was also confirmed today that the Senior Cup, known as the Bill Carroll Cup, will now be known as the Bill and Agnes Carroll Cup. The change came about thanks to Ann Carroll, the double All-Ireland Club and County Champion, who has chosen to re-dedicate the trophy in honour of her father and mother.
The Club Finals will also include mini-games, whilst eight teams will compete in the Camán and Run relay race throughout the afternoon, with teams from all around Ireland taking part.
