The policy of the Camogie Association is that doping is contrary to the spirit of FAIR PLAY and all members have a responsibility to ensure that our sport is free of doping.
The fundamental aims of doping control are threefold:
1) To uphold and preserve the ethics of sport.
2) To safeguard the physical health and mental integrity of players.
3) To ensure that all competitors have an equal chance.
All members of county panels taking part in the Senior Championship (O’Duffy Cup) may be subject to drug testing at any senior championship match. Players should be aware of the Irish Anti-Doping Rules available at www.irishsportscouncil.ie/anti-doping
Players are also responsible for checking their prescribed and over-the-counter medications to see if they are permitted for use by players. If a medication is not permitted, the player may need to apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption. The website http://eirpharm.com/ has a 'Drugs in Sport Database' where players can check prescribed and over-the-counter medications bought in the Republic of Ireland. Medications bought in Northern Ireland should be checked on http://www.globaldro.com/Home or contact the Irish Sports Council for assistance with your query.
