Camogie News Tuesday 3rd November 2015


The Camogie season is beginning to wind down, with a few notable exceptions.  Last weekend saw the end of year U11 Camogie Blitz’s, with 4 Boden teams in action across the city. The Minor Championship begins this coming Sunday. The B team face a difficult looking trip to Lucan on Sunday morning at 11am, at time of going to press we are unsure if the ‘A’   team have a fixture or not, keep an eye on the website later in the week.

The big Camogie game this weekend is the replay of the U14A Championship FINAL v Lucan Sarsfields. This game is in O’ Toole Park on Saturday at 12 and we hope for a large Boden crowd to get the girls over the line.

Finally,  on behalf of everybody involved in the Camogie section we congratulate the Senior footballers on their terrific & well deserved win on Sunday, best of luck this coming Sunday in Drogheda.

                                    U11 Camogie Gala Blitz 2015

The 1st day of November saw the Ballyboden U11 girls taking part in this year’s Camogie Gala Blitzes at a number of nearby locations.

The Diamonds took on Ballinteer St. John’s, Kilmacud Crokes, and Cuala up in Ballinteer, whilst the Rubies travelled to Sandyford to take on Naomh Olaf, Jude’s and a second Ballinteer St. John’s team.

At home in Sancta Maria, the Emeralds and Sapphires welcomed second teams from Naomh Olaf, Kilmacud Crokes and Cuala, as well as a team from Faugh’s.


Conditions were perfect with the sun shining all the while, indeed brighter than it had for most the Summer!! The girls played brilliantly from start to finish and all were rewarded with medals at the end of their games. The mentors and coaches are delighted with the progress that the girls are making and look forward to arranging a few more friendlies between now and the end of the term.

We are also very proud of the fact that Ballyboden were the only club to field 4 separate teams in the competition. Hopefully the girls will continue to enjoy themselves and stay playing together as U12’s and for many more years thereafter!
