Many members of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians and Our Lady of the Rosary Division Cleveland, Ohio played Camogie for the Emerald Camogie Team in their youth.
Those former players are excited to see the rebirth of Camogie in the Midwest and are proud that the Midwest GAA Board is sponsoring an event at the West Side Irish American Club at 8559 Jennings Rd, Olmsted Township, Ohio on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 to start the rebuilding of the game of Camogie.
This two-day event has the support of the Global Games Development Fund/USGAA and the Midwest GAA. This event is titled Camogie 360 and its aim is to help familiarize the ladies with the rules and basic movement of the game.
Saturday will consist of classroom/presentation and mostly practical activities out on the field. On Sunday, the ladies will participate in a tournament with both novice and experienced players. This will be a fun event to participate in and watch the game.
