There were eleven contenders for the overall sports award and the Lismore Senior Team were the the March winners who were nominated for their achievement of being the County's first camogire club to capture the All Ireland Intermediate Club Title. All in attendance was hopeful on capturing the overall Granville award and the overall prize was presented by Offaly's Michael Duignan after a Gala dinner in which the Nires Conor Gleeson won. Congratulations to Conor on this great achievment.
All Ireland Club Semi-Final
Preparations are well on the way for the All Ireland Semi-final against Oranmore/Maree Camogie Club of Galway, which is on Sunday February 1st. The girls were in training all over the Christmas season and are now training three times a week and have played two challenge games and are down to play the Cork minor a Camogie team in the GAA Grounds on Sunday.
We urge all businesses and private houses to put up the Black and amber in support of our girls who are showing great commitment to their game as they are in training for the last ten months without a break and indeed twelve months prior to their All Ireland achievement last year.
Waterford Camogie Fundraiser
On Saturday 31st January the Waterford Camogie County Board are holding a fundraiser at Kilcohan greyhound track. Waterford camogie had an extremely successful year in 2014 but funding the various County squads is expensive and they need the support of players, their families and local business to help them continue the excellent work that is occurring.
All clubs were issued tickets at the county board meeting on Monday night last. If there is anyone interested in a great night at the dog track and would like to support Waterford camogie tickets can be bought by contacting Mary Russell on (086) 3326128 at a cost of €10.
Advertisements in the program can also be bought if you so wish at a cost of €40 for a quarter page, €60 for a half page and €100 for a full page.
