A Camogie 2nd level “”Come And Try it Day”” was held in Buncrana GAA pitches, Buncrana, Co Donegal on Thursday the 7th of October 2010. Over 100 girls took part with four schools being represented, Errigal College, Letterkenny, Moville Community College, Moville, Crana College, Buncrana and Colaiste Chineal Eoghain, Buncrana.
During the 2 hour session players received elite coaching from county star Deirdre Grant, Johnny Downey (Burt Club) and Gavin Craig ( Donegal County Development Officer). Special thanks to the coaches for their time and effort.
After receiving excellent coaching and playing techniques the players tried out their newly acquired skills playing games against each other. The spirit that we associate with sport in Donegal was clearly evident on the Buncrana GAA pitches as the girls competed enthusiastically for every ball.
Prizes of sliotars were awarded to one girl from each school. These players had demonstrated talent, effort and enthusiasm throughout the day. They had made huge improvements during the coaching and competed excellently in the games.
With the enthusiasm shown by all involved the future looks bright for Camogie in Donegal.
Following the success of this Come & Try It day and the interest expressed by secondary schools in the county, we hope to run another day similar to this in the new year.
Many thanks to the teachers, coaches, Buncrana GAA club, Donegal Camogie County Board, Gavin Craig and all who helped to make the day so enjoyable.
