Camogie Update

It was a bumper week for camogie in Tyrone last week. The county organised an inaugural Easter camogie camp in Edendork over three days aided by coaches from Ulster council. There were over 35 kids in attendance and the girls all acquired new skills to take into their game. There were a lot of fun games and each day prizes were awarded for the various age groups. The girls received top class coaching from Ger, Laura, Mickey Gribben and Áine Donnelly. Everyone received a camogie t-shirt, water bottle and boot bag. As the camp was such a success it is hoped that a summer camp can be organised over the holiday period. Tyrone camogie would like to thank Edendork GAC for the use of their facilities and it was noted the free time given by Pete Doherty and Bríd Devlin in preparing the premises for the camp. Development Officer Leona Gallagher also put a great deal of organising into the event.
Derrylaughan hosted the first Go Games Blitz of 2014 on Saturday. There were in the region of 120 children who took part in the u10, u8 and u6 age category. The girls all played on average 6 games each to showcase their skills. The blitz had a huge number of parents and supporters in attendance. Everyone really enjoyed the morning and a big thanks must go to all the referees who helped out on the day and Derrylauaghan for their hospitality. The supporters and children were all catered for with lots of refreshments throughout the morning. The next Blitz will be held in Eglish in May.
Edendork and Eglish took part in the Pan Celtic tournament in Derry on Saturday. The tournament was for the under 16 and senior age categories and there were 20 and 16 teams in the respective age groups. The games comprised of two 15 minute halves. Eglish played a strong Granemore side to start with and it was a very entertaining match however they did not win that one. A must win game against Bannagher followed and a convincing win secured their place in the semi-finals. It was here that they went out of the competition despite the valiant efforts of their young squad members.
Edendork got off to a flying start as they beat Dungiven in their first match. They then played county Donegal in an end to end match and lost out by a single point which would have secured their semi-final spot. The two teams management put a lot of time and effort in the competition and it’s a credit to their hard work and dedication that their teams played so well. The tournament was very well organised and Lisa McAliskey from Ulster camogie must take a lot of praise for all the hard work she put into it.
There will be a goal keeping workshop on Tuesday evening starting at 7:00pm in Derrytresk. All clubs are asked to send their coaches and goalkeepers to this. It’s a brilliant opportunity to enhance the skill set of the goal stoppers as these sorts of workshops are not held that often.
The Ulster Championships launch is next Wednesday 30th April in Belfast. Ulster camogie have requested that players and managers are in attendance downstairs at the MAC theatre before 6.00pm so their photos can be taken and refreshments will be served before the launch. It is crucial that all counties are represented by a player and manager. Tyrone’s first match in the Championship will be on Sunday 25th May against Down II’s at home with a possible final a week later against either Cavan or Antrim II’s. The players training will resume on the 11th May in Garvaghey.
There were wins for Father Shields and Dungannon in the Post Primary League last week. There will be a full round of under 14 fixtures this week.
