Interested Irish and American-born camogs (AKA female hurlers) are meeting tomorrow night – Tuesday – 8:30 p.m. – to discuss the current plan to launch a camogie team under the Hoboken Guards banner, with their own jerseys already guaranteed. Whether you are interested in playing, coaching, assisting in recruiting, etc., please know that the Hoboken Guards Hurling Club has already received serious interest and player commitments from interested lady hurlers, and in order to bring this concept to reality, we need a few gals handling small duties (player recruitment primarily) to spread the word.
Helmets and jerseys will be provided. Girls will have to provide their own shin guards, ashgard if desired, an extra hurley or two. Issues to be discussed include club annual fee, prospective match dates being determined by NYGAA and North American GAA, fun events, insurance, etc.
Many hands make less work! Spread the word…I know its short notice, but a couple New York Gaelic Athletic Association camogie development meetings have transpired the past couple months regarding the two teams presently being created (one representing the Bronx, the other…all areas of NYC and NJ!)
Tir na Nog, 33rd and 8th, is located near Madison Square Garden, and is the location of this meeting. Pass the word along if you know anyone headed to NY or already in the NY/NJ area interested in being a part of playing or helping organize a camogie team.
