There hasn’t been a camogie team in Castleisland or its surrounding parishes for a few years with four decades.

The rise of ladies football at the time, probably, had a lot to do with the demise of the ancient and noble game throughout the district.

The good news is that it’s back – and back with intent and with a support structure in place backboned by the county board itself.

History Will Show

History will show that Cork woman and Cordal resident, Anne Walsh became the chairperson and driving force behind the just christened Sliabh Luachra Camogie Club.

The official launch of the club will be held at Castleisland Desmonds GAA Club grounds tomorrow afternoon Thursday, February 14th at 4:30pm.

Overwhelming Turnout

“We are delighted to announce that due to the overwhelming turnout at our open day on February 3rd in Castleisland that we will be launching Sliabh Luachra Camogie Club this Thursday the 14th,” said club secretary, Jennifer Snook.

“We would also like to sincerely thank all children, parents, teachers, players and volunteers who attended the open day,” said Jennifer.

Equipment Provided

“Registration is at 4.30pm with a short training session afterwards until 5.30pm. Equipment will be provided. Future training times will be confirmed later.

“Registration cost for the year is €25. If anyone cannot attend, they can still register their child by contacting us directly.

Pass it On

“We would greatly appreciate if you could pass this on to any interested children or parents.

If any further information is required please do not hesitate to contact myself, club secretary, by phone or email, or our Chairperson, Anne Walsh on 087 75 90 967,” Jennifer concluded.
