The National League Division 4 fixture scheduled for Sunday should have seen Tyrone welcome Wicklow at Kildress GAC however, Wicklow withdrew from this year’s League. A big thanks to Kildress for offering their facilities at such short notice. It was a massive disappointment for all concerned but Tyrone will have plenty of matches this year. The team took the opportunity to avail of the recently opened Garvaghey complex. This venue was only released from the contractors on Friday past and it is without doubt one of the best training facilities in Ireland. This venue will be the focal point for all Tyrone training sessions and matches for many a year to come. There will be training on Thursday evening at 7:30 at Dungannon Ball Wall before Tyrone play a friendly against Derry next Sunday at 2:30 at a home venue. This will be great preparation for the National League Fixture away to Kildare II on March 10th.
The senior league and championship draws for club camogie have not been drawn yet. The format of the championship was discussed at a fixtures meeting and agreed. Derrylaughan and Derrytresk will play in a senior championship in 2013 with all the other clubs contesting the Junior section. There will be no Intermediate championship this year. A new ‘Junior Select’ team will also contest the Senior championship which will comprise of some players from all the Junior championship sides. This is based loosely on the idea of ‘clustering’ of teams a format similar to this is often used to great effect in Gaelic football. It will be an exciting senior championship this year as will the Junior section. The Junior section will be fiercely contested with all teams being very similar in ability.
