There was no National league action for the Tyrone senior camogs last week but there was interest in another league fixture. Cavan and Kildare played out a draw on Saturday at the Breffni 3G complex in Cavan. The result leaves Carlow and Tyrone sitting at the top of the league and the table toppers will meet on Easter Sunday when the Red Hands make the long journey in what should be an enthralling match. Last year Carlow had a narrow win in this fixture and it is envisaged that this year’s match will be just as close.
Training will continue on Thursday evenings and there will be a friendly against a strong Armagh senior squad on Sunday 24th March possibly at the new Garvaghey complex. The match will be good preparation for the Easter Sunday fixture.
There was some disappointing news as Tyrone back Jane Canavan sustained a muscle injury in the Kildare match and she will unfortunately be out for 3-4 weeks. This is a massive blow for Tyrone and we wish her a speedy recovery.
In domestic news the senior championship was drawn amidst the ever changing landscape of senior camogie in Tyrone. In the junior section of the competition Brocach will play Éire Óg in a preliminary round with the winners going on to play Edendork. Dungannon will play Father Shields of Greencastle in the other semi-final. In the senior championship Doiretreasc will play a ‘Junior Select’ team and Derrylaughan will play Eglish in the other half of the draw.
Ulster Camogie ran a Foundation Coaching Course which was held in Derrytresk. The event was fully booked with over 20 participants all completing the accredited course taken by Ger Gribben and Marie Greenan. There will be a Level One Course later in the year and it is hoped that all participants that took part will go back to their clubs and help manage at underage in preparation for the Level 1. A big thanks to Derrytresk for the use of their facilities on the day.
The annual Camogie Congress will be held next weekend in County Mayo and Tyrone Camogie will have full representation at the event. It will run over two days and feedback will be reported on shortly afterwards with some motions being more pertinent than others.
There was some great news for Moortown camog and St Pius X of Magherafelt year 14 pupil Maggie Hagan when was successful in her attempt to get a Colleges Camogie All Star award. Maggie who was last year’s Tyrone Minor captain and a member of the senior squad is an outstanding camogie player and it wasn’t a surprise to hear she achieved this award.
Finally the Tyrone goalkeeper and Eglish captain Kelley Anne Fay tied the knot at a ceremony on Friday past. We wish her and husband Barry every happiness for the future but Kelley please hurry back to training.
