Camogie Notes - 13th April

The U16 team started the competitive year in Abbeyside taking on the combined Butlerstown and Ferrybank teams. The girls performed to a high level on the night with some good skill on display, Butlerstown ran out winners on the night. We had 25 girls togged out on the night which bodes well for the future of camogie in Abbeyside.

The U14 Feile is fast approaching with Abbeyside hosting girls from Mayo and playing Dungarvan, the Mayo champions and the Cavan champions on the week-end of 17th June.

Abbeyside hosted the first blitz of the year in glorious sunshine on the 10th of April. Clonea, An Rinn, Portlaw, Brickies and St Anne’s competed on the day with a total of 140 children playing camogie. A great day was had by all. Thanks to everyone who made the day a success with all clubs commenting on the hospitality and refreshments on offer. Thanks Claire.

Training commenced Friday for U6, U8 & U10 & U12. Training continues on Fridays for this age group.

The U12 will play their first blitz of the year on Saturday 16th hosted by the Brickey club.

The U14 are playing Tuesday the 12th in Abbeyside against An Rinn in their first championship game of the year at 18:45. Training for this group and the under 16 is Wednesday this week due to the U14 match.
The club would like to offer our best wishes to Laura Morrissey following her recent injury, we look forward to seeing you back in action in the near future.

Congratulations to Fiona Morrissey who bagged herself a Camogie College All-Star with Mary Immaculate, Limerick last week. Fiona has always been on hand to help with coaching when the need arises.

All associated with the club wish to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Willie Rossiter who passed away last week, Willie’s granddaughter Caoimhe is one of our bright young stars and he was a very proud grandad. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
