Easter Camogie EGGstravaganza in Croker!
 
The Camogie Association’s annual Caman to Croker took place on Easter Monday April 17th at GAA HQ with 64 clubs from across every corner of Ireland in attendance. 1,200 girls took to the hallowed turf of Croke Park to enjoy this games based blitz event for U12 club teams. A unique occasion and most memorable experience for these girls which we hope will keep them playing long into the future. Well done and thank you to all the clubs mentors, parents and supporters for getting involved and taking part.

Hurl with Me Programme Announced
 
The Camogie Association’s annual Hurl with Me Programme in association with the National Dairy Council has been announced for 2017.  This programme is aimed at players aged 7-10yrs in clubs and runs over a 6 week period where parents will accompany their daughter to training and learn some basic skills of the game.  The intention is that parents will hopefully gain some knowledge that they can help with their daughter’s development, keep the girls playing Camogie and expose more people to the benefits of being a member of a club/team.  Funding is being provided for 20 prorgammes across the country!
