Very Ambassador and Cork’s Amy O’Connor said: “Very has been an integral part of supporting Camogie and players over the past 7 years, and getting bums on seats is so important. As a Very ambassador and a passionate Camogie player I know how hard we all work for the love of the sport, every team across all divisions have athletes of immense talent. Having people in the stands to witness our skill helps inspire others to take part and support Camogie while also giving the players the boost they need when competing.”
Very Ambassador and Galway’s Dervla Higgins also said: “Having spectators in the stands and the atmosphere that brings to Croke Park breathes life into the teams playing. I am buzzing for Sunday’s game. There is no better feeling than representing your county and taking those first steps onto the pitch in Croke Park and it’s even better if we can help inspire people across the country to take part and give Camogie a go – whether it’s playing, attending matches or streaming our games.”
