THE FIRST GAME FOR BOTH TEAMS IN THIS COMPETITION

Saturday August 28th was a day that will live long in the memory of O’ Loughlin Gaels Camogie Club participants.
Following on from the hugely successful Mamogie initiative which started earlier this year, it was the turn of the Mums and Chums to take centre stage for a change. An immensely enjoyable evening was had by all, as two competitive teams had an opportunity to display the skills honed by coaches Sheamie Cummins and Stephen Hogan all summer.
It was hard to believe that many of the eager skilful participants had never played camogie until recently, as there were many moments which drew gasps and claps from the crowd.
Guest referee was Seán Cleere, who ensured that the match ran smoothly and enjoyably.
The camogie league and championship cups were on hand for photographs, and after much debate, Mammies of the match were announced- Richelle Guilfoyle and Deirdre Breen.
The Mamogie charity match was preceded by an underage camogie blitz, and followed by long puck competition.
All players and spectators availed of this opportunity to donate to the Home Care Team, in memory of Teresa Magnier.
Teresa’s daughter Jodie and husband Roy Lindsay are valued club members, and were on hand to witness the goodwill shown to the Home Care Team, who provide such an invaluable service in the community.
Well done to Orla Skehan for organising the event, and all others who contributed to the smooth running of this special event.
