Boyle camogie club promote county draw

While there are justifiable concerns about the fall off in girls’ participation in sport, Boyle Camogie Club has proven to buck that trend. Established in 2016 starting with only u6 and u8 players, the club has seen huge growth and now provides camogie for girls from Boyle and surrounding areas at the u6/8/10/12/14/16 level. The club’s philosophy is one of participation, enjoyment, and skills development, in a setting of respect for all and having fun. They play, they stay!

In 2019 the club participated in its first competitive matches, the Roscommon Camogie u12 League. In the past five years, the club has established itself as a significant presence in under-age camogie. The club has welcomed girls from not just Boyle but also from neighbouring clubs, St Michaels/Ronans, Northern Harps, and Eastern Harps. The club has also been instrumental in camogie now being played by three local schools, Cootehall NS, Abbey NS, and Abbey Community College.

Boyle teams have competed in and won County Finals and qualified for National Feile. Girls from Boyle Camogie have been involved in development squads and County teams for the past 3 years. This year there are 5 girls involved with the u14 development squads and 6 girls on the u16 County panel. One of those 6 was also brought up to play minor this year.

None of this could have been possible without the support from the local community and Roscommon Camogie. That support is appreciated by the players, coaches, and the families in the club who are now asking for you to support the Roscommon Camogie county draw, to raise funds to support the County teams which travel across the country throughout the summer, flying the flag for their local and County teams, as well as for girls in sport. Tickets start at €10, with 15 prizes and special discounted rates if you buy tickets online. All details available at
