Tyrone camogs will make the journey to Kildare on Sunday 10th March to play their first All-Ireland National League Division 4 fixture. Training continues apace with a recent session at Eoghan Ruadh ball wall in Dungannon. This was ahead of a friendly with a talented Derry minor  side in Brocach on Sunday.

Kildare II’s are an unknown quantity who will be buoyed by their new sponsorship deals with their new jerseys also on show. The Tyrone team have unfortunately lost Catherine Hanna for a couple of weeks due to injury. We wish her a speedy recovery and hope to see her back for her county before too long. Tyrone manager Dean McParland said of the up and coming league fixtures,

“With the new positional changes this year and the merging of our talented minors the team has a good blend of experience and youth. The Kildare match is intriguing as both teams know little about each other”

Meanwhile Tyrone captain Julie Lagan is confident of the team’s hopes for this year and she said,

“The training, facilities and equipment available to the team this year is of the highest order. It’s nice to see we have the youth of our county making up a large part of the team. This is a team for now and future years and I’m excited for the season ahead”

Tyrone camogie had full representation in Croke Park on Saturday last at a PRO event organised by the camogie association. Jerome Quinn gave an interesting presentation on print, radio and video with Ed Donnelly giving an insight into I.T and social media. President of the camogie association Aileen Lawlor launched the, ‘Camogie Association Social Media Policy and Guidelines’. This policy and guidelines will be circulated to all clubs in due course.

The Foundation Training course set for Doiretreasc on Saturday March 9th is now fully booked. Ger Gribben will head the course with the help of Marie Greenan and all participants are asked to be there no later than 9:45am. Everyone should bring their own hurl, boots and a packed lunch with the course set to end at around 4:00pm. It is fantastic the course has such high profile tutors in Ger and Marie and the uptake shows the importance of such an accredited course to all those trainers. There will be a Level 1 course later in the year to accommodate those who have taken this foundation course. It is hoped that coaches will go back to their clubs and help manage an underage team in preparation for the Level 1.

We all wish Niamh McNulty, St Joseph’s Grammar, and Rebecca Barker, St Patrick’s Academy, every success when they try to overcome the final hurdle to secure a College’s camogie All-Star award at the MUSA complex on Monday 11th March.

Bríd Ui Dhonnghaile from Éire Óg was Tyrone Camogie representative for the All Ireland Camogie Volunteer awards on Saturday in Croke Park. Bríd has been a tireless worker throughout the years for her club and county. She was treated to a day at the All Ireland Club finals and a dinner afterwards.
