Tyrone Camogie Latest News

It was that time of year that the under 14’s took centre stage in the Camogie calendar in Tyrone as the annual Féile was held on Sunday. Despite the winners not progressing into this year’s All Ireland Féile competition which is being held in Ulster, the level of competition was not diminished. Carrickmore, Eglish and Dungannon played each other in two 15 minute half games with the top two contesting the final. Eglish won their first two and Dungannon won one of their matches to put both teams in the final. It turned out to be an excellent game which Eglish went on to win. Aisling McLaughlin from Dungannon won the skills competition and will be the Tyrone representative at the All Ireland Féile in June. Eglish and Eire Og are hosting families at this year’s All Ireland Féile and therefore they will represent Tyrone.




Tyrone Camogie would like to thank Stewartstown Harps for the use of their facilities at such short notice. It’s not the first time Camogie was played here as last year’s under 16 championship final also took place at this fine venue. Tommy Nixon and Barry Winters must be praised for their officiating of the games.

Last week there were wins for Dungannon, Edendork, Eglish and Father Shields in the Post Primary League. Edendork and Eglish played a very entertaining game in the opening of the championship in a prelim round with Eglish progressing through to the quarter finals to face Derrylaughan on 19th May.

There will be a full round of Post Primary fixtures this week and a prelim round of the under 14 championship will take place as Father Shields will host Dungannon.
