The capital girls secured the Biddy Philips Cup for the first time with a win over Tipperary in the final on a scoreline of 4-5 to 3-5. Galway had a good win over Derry in the shield competition.  Thank you to Na Fianna for hosting the tournament and to all the organisers.

U18 “Strike for Glory” Reaches Final Stage
 
The Semi-Finals of the Strike for Glory competition were held on Saturday April 8th 2017. Wicklow faced Monaghan who had defeated Donegal in the Quarter-Final last weekend, whilst Mayo took on Kerry in Tubber, Co Clare. Both semi-finals were a close affair with Kerry and Wicklow coming out the eventual winners. They will now contest the 2017 Strike for Glory Final.
 
We hope that all players and teams enjoyed representing their counties at this level and come away with wonderful memories of a great competition. This competition is tremendous for the development of the game and we would like to thank all the counties for their participation this year and helping make it such a success.

South Kildare Fundamentals Workshop
 
An evening course took place at St. Laurence’s club, Ballitore, Co. Kildare to equip new mentors from South Kildare with the basics of camogie coaching for young players. This was a very successful workshop with 16 new mentors participating and was very effectively ran by tutor and former Camogie Development Officer Patrick Mullaney. The course covered many basic tools for the new coach to employ and they will now enhance their capacity to coach by putting the lessons learned at the workshop into practice.
 
 
Kildare & Meath Primary Schools Coaching Initiative
 
The Kildare Primary Schools initiative has been now completed in four schools St. Brigid’s Kildare Town, Scoil na Naomh Uilig and Ballymany SPS (both Newbridge) and Curragh GNS with the programme also in progress at St. Evin’s GNS, Monasterevan and Scoil Bríd Athgarvan.
 
In Meath, the initiative also has commenced at Moylagh NS, St. Mary’s Enfield, Dunboyne SPS, St. Paul’s Navan, Our Lady’s Kells and Realt na Mara, Mornington. The programme consists of coaching across 6 mornings in the schools over a 6-week period. The coaches have been excellent and the response has been very positive with strong links also being forged between the schools and local clubs.
