Camogie Update

The Senior Championship got underway last week with the Round 1 games. The Clane girls continued as they left off after their League Final success with a 2-9 to 1-3 victory over St Laurence’s. The two other games in the Round resulted in victories for both Maynooth and Celbridge. After Round 1 the League Championship reads as follows;

Our Primary School girls also did us proud last week by getting to the U13 Cumann na mBunscol Final Thursday where they played GS Ui Fhiach, Maynooth. The Maynooth girls proved too strong in the end but what an accomplishment for our girls in the first year of participation in the competition in over 20 years. Well done girls and to Ms Doyle and all involved.

A busy week for the Club as they host the Kildare Seniors who will have a training session in the Club on Wednesday evening at 1930 and also will play Round 2 of the All Ireland Intermediate Championship on Saturday at 1430 in Clane. All support for the girls is greatly appreciated and we would like to wish the girls and management all the best this weekend.

Please note that Clane Camogie will be carrying out a Church gate collection on Saturday the 1st of July and Sunday the 2nd of July at all Clane Masses (permit granted).

  • Austin Gleeson Has Become The Victim Of His Own Ability June 22, 2017
    Austin Gleeson, at just 21-years-old, is one of the most ridiculously talented men in the country. That said, he has already become the victim of his own success. The 2016 Hurler of the Year burst onto the scene as an exciting minor in 2013. The Mount Sion man’s talents were clear as day even back […]

  • Opinion: The GAA Need To Move With The Times When It Comes To Nutrition June 22, 2017
    The GAA train of thought regarding nutrition is still very much old-school. With pre-season campaigns starting earlier and earlier, as physical training begins to entail so much more than just ‘a few laps’ and ‘sprints to the 45’ and as amateur athletes are expected to perform at professional levels, even on the club scene, we examine […]

  • Lack Of Coverage Doing Hurling Minnows A Disservice June 22, 2017
    For the Carlow minor hurling team 2006 was a landmark year not only for the Barrowsiders but also for every minnow hurling county in Ireland. Reaching a Leinster final against Kilkenny was a huge achievement, especially for a county where success in any GAA code is a rarity. Over a decade later in 2017, Carlow […]

  • Derek McGrath Introduces Two Waterford Legends As New Selectors Following Sunday’s Loss June 21, 2017
    Derek McGrath has acted swiftly to eradicate the issues in his Waterford camp which saw them come up short against Cork in Sunday’s Munster SHC semi-final.  The Déise were second best at the weekend for the majority of the game, with the Rebels fully deserving of their 0-23 to 1-15 win. Even after Cork were […]

    One of the most physical teams in the country, Kilkenny possess quite a few beasts in their ranks. But one pair amongst them, Paul Murphy and TJ Reid, have now attempted to find out who’s top dog in a test of strength. Murphy is a member of the defence forces and, therefore, an animal by […]

The decider, in two weeks’ time, is a clash between arguably the […]

  • Eoin Larkin Column: Austin Gleeson Needs To Play For The Team June 20, 2017
    I was disappointed with Waterford on Sunday. I knew they were going to set up with the sweeper but to me, Derek McGrath hasn’t progressed with this Waterford project. Playing this style was alright in his first year to steady the ship but he hasn’t really moved on. I know they were within a puck of […]
