It is summer camp season and the Kelloggs Cul Camps are in full swing. Full details of all camps can be seen on: https://www.kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie/
Pictured above the Aghada Cul camp in Cork had 175 boys and girls take part in GAA games from July 18th-22nd.
Guests at the camp included Cork Senior Dual Star Alan Cadogan, Hannah Looney (Cork camogie) and Roisin Phelan (Cork Ladies Football). It was a great opportunity for future stars of the game to meet their current inter county heroes.
120 girls attended the Dublin rising stars camogie camp in the GAA National Games Development Centre this week. Coaches from the Dublin intercounty team coached at the camp aimed at girls aged 8-12 years.
