The National Camogie fixtures were recently released and these threw up some familiar ties between the counties. Tyrone will face Wicklow in the opening game on Sunday 24thFebruary at home. This fixture in the National league last season saw a comfortable win for Tyrone but the Red Hand girls will be taking nothing for granted. An away fixture against Kildare II on Sunday 10th March looks like being an intriguing contest as the teams have not met before. Following that there will a tough away fixture on Sunday 31st March against Carlow who produced a strong display last time when the beat Tyrone on home turf in Moortown. The final league fixture will be against old adversaries Cavan on Sunday 7th April and last year’s narrow defeat is still fresh in the minds of the Tyrone camogs.

There was some great news for Tyrone Camogie when it was announced that the county had secured the services of Dean Mc Parland as manager for the coming year. Dean was with the squad last year and with the departure of senior coach Chris Heaney to Australia he was an easy choice to replace his good friend and mentor. Dean is a well-known coach around Armagh and has had many successful years at club level. He had temporary charge of the team at the back end of last season. He has a good knowledge of the clubs and players so he won’t take long to settle into his position. There will be a players meeting scheduled for Sunday 2nd December at 1:00pm in Eglish for all eligible county senior players. It is important that everyone attends that meeting as there will be training dates discussed along with other matters.

A big thanks to all who attended last week’s referees course which saw everyone passing the examination that was held at the end of the course . The certificates will be passed to all club secretaries for distribution.

Another reminder that a ‘Strength and Conditioning’ Workshop for camogie will take place on Saturday 1st December from 11:00am to 2:00pm in St Ciaran’s Ballygawley. This course will be free of charge and open to both coaches and players. Active gear must be worn and take pen and paper for notes. Please email ross@camogie.ie or tel 07435769094.

The Ulster Camogie Awards were held on Saturday in Kellys Inn Garvaghy. Austin O’Callaghan from the BBC hosted the event and the Camogie President Aileen Lawlor made the long journey to Tyrone to present some of the awards. There was a lot of All Ireland winning medal winners present and everyone enjoyed the professional well organised day. There was success for Tyrone camog Áine Donnelly as she lifted the Ulster Minor Shield player of the year. Martin Donnelly lifted the Ulster Pro of the year award and he was presented with the award by Aileen Lawlor. A massive thank you must go to Ciaran Kearney and all his team at Ulster Camogie who laid on a seamless and entertaining awards ceremony.

The teamtalkmag.com awards are being held this Friday and we hope Julie Lagan, Aisling Corr, Catherine Hanna and Niamh McNulty have a fantastic evening at the Gala awards ceremony. There can be only one winner but as we all know they are so close in playing ability it will surely be worthy player that lifts the award. Congratulation to Catherine Hanna, and her dancing partner, who won her club’s dancing competition for charity event that was held last week in Coalisland.

A final congratulations to Eoghan Ruadh hurling club from Dungannon who had  a civic reception to honour their achievements in 2012 when players and coaches enjoyed a fantastic evening at Dungannon Council offices.
