We’re keen to keep you informed of all that’s happening in the Camogie world so watch out for these.


I’ve just undertaken visits to Donegal and Derry County Boards and then Mayo last night. Excellent development work going on and good ideas on improving access to coaching and playing opportunities. Great to hear about the involvement of Carrick on Shannon (Leitrim), Sylane (Galway) and Western Gaels (Sligo) along with Na Brideoga, Castebar Mitchells and Westport in the work of Mayo County Board. You can encourage and support this new teams by giving their young players games opportunities particularly in the age ranges under 8-12s.


Ar aghaidh leis an Cham¾gaÝocht!
