Belfast Primary Schools Blitz
36 Girls from Victoria College, Bunscoil Phobal Feirste, Ballymacrickett and St Teresas participated in 'Have a Go' day in Rossa GAC. The blitz ensured a fun-filled morning playing camogie with friends and an introduction to competitive games to enable increased participants getting involved in Camogie in the local Belfast Camogie clubs.
Many thanks to Rossa GAC and Margaret Flynn for hosting and assiting in the running of the blitz.
Monaghan Primary School Blitz
51 girls from Gaelscoil Eois, Latton, Castleblaney and Gaelscoil Lorcan took part in a participation blitz in Cloughan, Monaghan. Only 22 of the 51 girls currently play camogie regularly in school and in local clubs so the hope after the blitz is that the other girls will pick up the hurl and play for local camogie clubs.
