Our U12 Camogs, their parents and extended family members enjoyed a great day out at Croke park on Saturday 18th October'14 for the 'Caman to Croker' event that seen 64 club teams across Ireland participating.
Edendork were early qualifiers for this non-competitive blitz after a very successful 'Hurl Smart' week in June'14 and subsequent selection as 1 of 10 teams nationally. The other 54 teams were drawn from 'hats' as provincial blitz participants in August'14.
This will certainly be a day to be remembered for our girls, having been photographed with the President of the Camogie Association, Aileen Lawlor and having had the opportunity to play on Croke Park turf against teams from reputable counties in Camogie.
Edendork were in the fourth/ last group of the day and competed strongly against all three teams, namely; Athenry of Galway, Enniskeane of Cork and Burren Rangers of Carlow. Perhaps someday our girls will come up against some of these girls / teams in national competitions in the future!
Well done! More pictures on our Gallery.
