Tyrone Senior Camogie Team have reformed for 2017, after a brief period of absence from the National League and All-Ireland Competitions over the past few years. Tyrone camogie has been working very hard with its youth and underage levels and recently brought success back to the county having won all Ireland competitions in 2016 at u14 & u16 levels.
We now are very fortunate to have a new group of young talented players coming up through the ranks and aspiring towards the senior level having experience a large gap in numbers and players over the past few years. We are now able to compete at again at senior national level. Our last major success was back in 2007 and 2008 winning all Ireland division 5 followed national league division 4 and now 2017 we are entering in a division 3 level competition for 2017.
Under the new management of Keiran Leadon for the season ahead the panel is made up of talented girls throughout Tyrone Derrytresk, Eglish, Brocagh, Eire Og Carrickmore, Dungannon, Ballinderry/Moortown, Fr Shields, St Johns Belfast and Strabane that have been going through their trial sessions over the past number of weeks. This now the biggest number of camogie clubs representing a Tyrone Senior Camogie Team in several years.
Training is already on its way with an excellent new manager and trainer Kieran Leadon former trainer from who has been putting the girls through their paces from early January assisted by Sinead O’Neill former player who is currently out on a long term knee injury for the year ahead. Girls have been completing trail sessions over the past few weeks and now starting to gather momentum in their training att Eire Og Pitch and Wall ball sessions at Eoghan Ruadh Hurling Club as we prepare for the first national league fixture against Kerry towards the end of February
Camogie clubs in Tyrone always works hard to keep the sport alive and balance itself against large numbers of ladies football and with a new panel of players that still possess both some very experienced players and new younger players it is a great opportunity to start rebuilding this young senior team and leading the way again for camogie in Tyrone for the youth coming shortly behind with their most recent successes. We aim to continue to grow to build camogie over the next few years.
This years national league and all Ireland division 3 competitions will involve teams from Kerry, Dublin, Roscommon and Clare whom we will be playing over the next few months.
