Minor Camogie Protests Fall on Deaf Ears

The move to have the minor camogie championship reinstated into the 2020 calendar has fallen on deaf ears as the camogie association today announced no change to their master fixture plan.

On reading the announcement Chairperson of Limerick Camogie Liz Hennessey said “there are no words to express the disappointment”

The statement issued to camogie boards across the country today reads as follows:

Further to last week’s announcement regarding the revised 2020 National Camogie Fixtures Calendar Ard Chomhairle have at their meeting of Wednesday July 1st taken time to review the decisions made.

Ard Chomhairle wish to ensure that the best fixture structures possible have been put in place so as to provide a programme of games to all members, across all levels of the Association as best as possible in 2020.

Ard Chomhairle considered all available options, and following much debate have concluded that their original decisions will stand. These decisions were made to ensure that the greatest numbers of players across all levels of the Association could play as many games as possible within the constraints we face in 2020.

2020 has been an exceptional year, with many unprecedented challenges facing the Camogie Association. While we are returning to play, we remain focused on ensuring the health and safety of our members by taking the necessary precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19, whilst providing a playing programme to all players across all levels of the Association.

As County Chairpersons and Secretaries I thank you for your support in helping to ensure that all Units and members adhere to the ‘Safe Return to Gaelic Games’ roadmap which will hopefully enable a return to activity over the coming weeks and months. Ard Chomhairle wish to express their thanks to you and your colleagues for your patience, support and perseverance over the past four months.

This has been a challenging period for us all, and we are all looking hopefully to the future and seeing games take place later this month.

If you have any further queries in relation to fixtures do not hesitate to contact our National Fixture Co-ordinator Caroline Halton on fixtures@camogie.ie

Stay safe.
