Almost 3,000 girls aged 12-19 take part in Post-Primary schools camogie nationwide, with over 180 schools competing annually. 
 
President of the Camogie Association Aileen Lawlor said: 
 
“It is fantastic to see O’Neills supporting and promoting the growth and development of camogie amongst our young players. At present there are up to 3,000 girls aged 12-19 years of age, taking part in camogie at Post-Primary level.
 
These girls are provided with the opportunity to experience playing camogie during their school days, both competitively and recreationally. Today’s announcement is a strong endorsement of the importance of supporting Post-Primary schools camogie. I want to acknowledge and thank O’Neills for their support in this initiative.”
 
Tony Towell of O’Neills said: 
 
“On behalf of O’Neills, I would like to wish the Post-Primary Schools every success. O’Neills have been part of the Camogie Association family for decades and we are delighted to be involved with such a wonderful sporting event that promotes the involvement of so many young girls. We wish all competing teams the very best of luck.”
