Munster GAA Council are breaking new ground backing an ambitious Munster Camogie Development Plan.
The plan outlines specific initiatives to promote and increase both the quantity and quality of players and coaches within camogie as well as increasing the profile of the game across the province of Munster over the next 3 years.
The Plan addresses a wide range of challenges including Primary Schools Coaching, Primary Schools Development Squads, Secondary Schools Coaching, Marketing and PR, and Weaker County Development. Munster GAA Council are making a contribution of €64,000 over this three year period.
Munster GAA Council Chairman Jimmy O’Gorman has also pledged further GAA support as regards the provision of coaching assistance. ‘We see the development of Camogie in Munster as vital to the future of our national game and we have pledged every possible support to the Camogie Association in their efforts to develop and promote the sport of camogie’.
Munster Camogie Council Chairman Morgan Conroy was equally effusive in his praise for the GAA. ‘In order to develop the game the reality is we need money. We are extremely grateful to the GAA for their financial contribution and also for their continued support with regard to other areas such as the provision of facilities, coaching, and an increased recognition of the important role of camogie players and females within the GAA family’
This is another positive move towards the integration of GAA and Camogie. And it is expected this development will benefit both organizations within the province.
