AND SO IT BEGINS…

The fixtures for the 2020 Littlewoods Ireland National Camogie League – Division 1 have been released.  The word ‘released’ signifying that the race has begun and so it has.

Dublin Camogie’s new managers, Cuala duo John Treacy, Willie Braine , and their team will bring their skills and experience into the cauldron and blend the ingredients of talent, fitness, individualism, structure, diet, motivation and the myriad elements that constitute life and success.

Dublin are drawn in Group 2 of the League with Galway, Tipperary and Limerick.  The first fixture is Galway, who are the reigning champions, on the first weekend of February. This is a plunge into the deep and cold waters of competition but one which can yield great rewards as all those taken to the depths of the 40 foot on Christmas morning will attest to.

The League is a tightrope of a competition, the winner of Group 1 and 2 meeting in the final on Sunday 22nd March.  Lean but a little to the left or the right and a team can plummet.  There is little room for error or doubt and this makes it as much a challenge of the mind as well as the body. As such and as with all great endeavours it starts with ‘intent’, the directedness towards a final object or goal and the Dublin Team will be prepared.  All teams will work to undergo a form of alchemy, if you will, a process of transmuting individual promise or elements into an elixir of success. This is what makes sport so compelling and Camogie none less so.

Dublin’s second and third fixtures will be away to Tipperary (23rd February) and Limerick (8th March).

Group 2 sees Kilkenny, Cork, Offaly, Clare and Waterford go head to head. Good luck to them all.

To add further spice to the competition a relegation from Division 1 will face the teams at the bottom of each group.  This will take place on the 15th March.
