MINOR, U22, JUNIOR and SENIOR CAMOGIE Round-Up 2022.
Adult camogie 2022 started with usual expectations and ambitions. A new Management team was ratified and in place for 2022. Led by new Senior Manager SEAMUS KELLY there was an air of excitement as Seamus came with huge experience and huge success with camogie teams in the previous 5/6 years at all levels, inter-county adult, intermediate, underage and colleges. The challenge laid down by Seamus was simple, to try break into top 4 at senior level in 2022 while along the way grow and improve as camogie players.
Seamus gathered a team of experienced coaches/selectors in John Caldbeck, Ann Marie Hoyne, John Kenny and Adrian Ronan. Read more
Half of the proceeds of The Annual Mary McGrath Table Quiz normally in aid of St. Brigid’s Camogie Club, this year was decided to go towards UNICEF which help Ukrainian aid during these awful times. St. Brigid’s Camogie Club also matched this donation to UNICEF. Below is the acknowledgment letter from UNICEF. Thanks to everyone who supported us in anyway.
I just wanted to drop you a note from Ukraine to say a huge thank you for your generous donation of €1124.00 to help children like 15-month-old Artur. I met him and his family when I visited an air raid shelter in Lviv. This is the second time they’ve had to flee their home because of the violence, so the fact that people like you care about them means so much.
To a mother at her wit’s end after travelling on foot with her small children in the bitter cold for three days, your gift of clean water is so precious. To a child who’ll spend yet another night sleeping in an underground bunker instead of their bed at home, your gift of a blanket is so comforting.
Thanks to the amazing help of people like you in Ireland and across the world, UNICEF has already delivered several tons of hygiene products, including diapers, disinfectant, and wipes to a temporary refugee centre at the Palanca crossing point on Ukraine’s border with Moldova.
With your help, we won’t stop until every child is reached. Thank you again.
UNICEF Spokesperson, Ukraine
