Good Luck Sliabh Luachra Camogie Club:
A female led committee launched the Sliabh Luachra Camogie Club at Castleisland Desmonds GAA meeting room and pitch on St. Valentine’s Day.

It could have been labelled a Love Camogie Day but there were far more serious matters to occupy the minds of the organisers.

A queue gathered as the 4:30 pm meeting time approached and it lengthened and wound its way out into the fine, spring evening air as registrations were being taken indoors by club founder and chairperson, Anne Walsh.

On the field of play, mentors, Laura Collins and Jennifer Snook got down to work and split the estimated 50 plus players into two manageable groups.

If history is any guide, this can be fertile ground to plough for Camogie.In 1972 and in 1974 victory socials / dinner dances were held in the Earl of Desmond Hotel to mark significant county wins by Castleisland Camogie Club teams.

At one of these celebrations, club mentor, Garda Mick Fitzgerald told the gathering that some of the Castleisland girls had been playing the game less for than two years and one of those celebrations was for a county championship and league double.

Club officers involved in those days included: Mick and Margaret Fitzgerald, Moss and Peggy Teahan, Batt and Breda O’Connor and Jimmy O’Connell. Players included: Mars Fitzgerald, Eileen and Mai Lombard, Margaret Griffin, Margaret, Sheila and Marie Drumm, Kathleen Casey, Margaret O’Brien, Patsy O’Reilly, Deirdre Jones, Marie Dillon, Helen Roche, Mary Geaney, Margaret Gould, Judy O’Sullivan, Irene Barry, Margaret Mitchell, Mary Broderick and Margaret O’Connor.

Thanks to for the great exposure of Camogie development in Kerry.
