Over 1,200 young camogie players will take part Camán to Croker next Tuesday. Organised in association with Torpey Hurleys, players from 64 clubs, including Parteen and St Joseph’s Doora Barefield, will have a wonderful opportunity to experience the atmosphere of Croke Park.
This is the fourth year of the development initiative catering specifically for U-12 players. A series of regional blitzes took place earlier this year in Semple Stadium, Thurles; Newry, Pearse Stadium in Galway and O’Connor Park, Tullamore.
President of the Camogie Association Catherine Neary said, “Camán to Croker is a fantastic initiative which focuses on a very important group, players under twelve years of age. It provides them with an opportunity to experience the skills and fun of the game and leaves them with fantastic memories of playing in Croke Park, a place where all young GAA players want to play.
Seán Torpey of Torpey Hurleys said, “We are delighted to have seen the growth of this event over the past number of years. Torpey Hurleys have always been proud supporters of camogie and we are particularly pleased that we can support an initiative which provides young camogie players with a truly memorable experience.”
