After only four years in existence, the growth of Bredagh Camogie has exceeded all expectations, with approximately 150 players competing from U8 to senior level.

All the hard work is beginning to pay off as the U14 camogs will make history by representing Down for the first time at the All Ireland Feile in Laois this weekend.
Bredagh qualified for the All Ireland Feile by winning the Co. Down Feile in April where the team progressed to the final without conceding a point and won a fiercely contested final against Ballygalget in front of a large partisan crowd in Portaferry.
Bredagh will compete in Division 2 of the Feile with O’Moore’s (Laois), Camross (Offaly) and Lismore (
The team will play host club O’Moore’s on the Friday afternoon and the further two round robin matches on Saturday morning. The semi-finals are held on the Saturday evening with the final at on the Sunday.
