County Camogie Board notes
Published 27/02/2016 | 00:00
Hard luck to the Minor camogie team who suffered defeat to Limerick in the opening round of the All-Ireland 'A' championship on Saturday, and also to the Intermediates who suffered an agonising one-point loss to All-Ireland finalists Kildare in Coolgreany on Sunday.
The camogie foundation course on Saturday will start at 9.15 a.m. in Piercestown. All coaches attending are asked to bring a hurl, €20 fee, water and lunch.
There has been a very healthy response to the course and credit must go to the coaches and clubs committing to undertake the first qualification on the camogie coaching ladder.
There was a great buzz in Oulart on Saturday as Oulart-The Ballagh camogie club took part in the Thar an Trasnán competition for TG4's Seó Spóirt programme. The competition is for G.A.A. clubs throughout Ireland, giving them a chance to win a full team kit sponsored by O'Neills.
The Seó Spóirt team will visit different clubs to check out what skills they have on offer when it comes to hurling, football, camogie or ladies' football.
Seven players - Ciara Storey, Shelley Kehoe, Stacey Redmond, Mary Leacy, Shauna Sinnott, Louise Sinnott and Karen Atkinson - had to try to score as many points or goals, individually, in order to get on top of the leader board.
The challenge they faced was Una Sinnott who was tasked with dispossessing the players as they attempted to score for their club.
Laura Sinnott was the club's gaelgóir for the competition. The details of when the show will air will be available closer to the time.
Jacinta Roche was in Croke Park on Saturday to receive national recognition for being Wexford's club volunteer of the year for 2016. Catherine Neary, Uachtarán of the Camogie Association, presented Jacinta with her award.
Justin Heffernan was also present and in receipt of an All-Ireland medal, as all the referees that took charge of All-Ireland finals in 2015 were honoured also.
