THE Clare Camogie Board, in conjunction with the Clare Camogie Supporters club will host an awards night this Saturday at the Auburn Lodge Hotel.
Medals will be presented to the Munster U-16 camogie champions on the night, along with the U-14 inter-county blitz winners from the Galway blitz.
As this is the 75th year of Clare camogie the county executive has introduced the Inaugural Club Star Awards. These are a small token of the appreciation that the board has for those who work so hard at club level but may never reach county teams, but without whom clubs would not survive.
The medal and award recipients have been asked to be in the Auburn Lodge for 7.30pm. The presentation will begin at 8pm.
