The Camogie Association has announced a substantial investment of €250,000 to support grassroots camogie clubs in Ireland. This investment will benefit over 600 clubs by providing games equipment packs. The funding has been made possible through a ‘Return to Sport’ grant from Sport Ireland, which the Camogie Association’s Ard Chomhairle has committed to match and further invest in clubs, with the aim is to increase player numbers and retain existing players in the sport. In March, the Camogie Association reached out to all clubs to gather their feedback on the type of assistance they would prefer. 69% of those surveyed felt the investment would benefit them best by supplying games equipment.
