Limerick Camogie Games Postponed Following Illness Outbreak

Last weekend Limerick made it two wins from two in the Liberty Insurance Camogie Championship with a 1-18 to 1-10 victory over Wexford in Croagh last Saturday.

However, after the game players from both sides reported ill as well as members of the Limerick and Kerry Junior panels who played in a curtain raiser with an issue with the water at the grounds.

As a result Limerick’s senior camogie clash with Galway this Saturday in Athenry at 5pm has now been postponed due to the illness in the Limerick camp.

The Junior tie with Offaly in Birr on Saturday has also been postponed.

The Campogie Association have issued a statement explaining their decision.

“Due to an outbreak of gastro-enteritis at last weekend’s double-header fixtures in Croagh GAA (Saturday June 29th), involving Limerick, Kerry and Wexford teams, the Camogie Association has made the decision due to player welfare to postpone all fixtures involving these sides this weekend (Saturday July 6th) in order to give the affected players an opportunity to fully recover before the next round of the All-Ireland Championships.

The Camogie Association have been liaising with the counties involved throughout this week to ensure that they are fully informed of the situation and provided with any necessary advice and assistance.

The HSE’s Public Health and Environmental Health Departments and Limerick City and County Council are investigating the matter and is requesting that any player who has been ill following the matches and has not already been in contact with the HSE to make contact with their Local Department of Public Health.

The fixtures postponed this weekend are: Galway v Limerick (Senior), Offaly v Wexford (Senior), Offaly v Limerick (Premier Junior) and Kerry v Wicklow (Premier Junior).

Details regarding the re-arrangement of these fixtures will be confirmed in the coming days and we wish to thank all of the counties impacted by these fixture changes for their co-operation this week.”
