Statement sent to club secretaries 02.05.21

Please see below statement sent to club secretaries by Dublin Camogie secretary in relation to the Association fixture schedule and statement thereafter. 

2nd May 2021

A Chairde,

Dublin Camogie Executive are against the proposed intercountry fixture schedule released over the
weekend from the Camogie Association.
We have always taken a ‘club first’ approach and this has been evident in the work done with the DLGFA
on fixture plans at juvenile level & the Dual Player Motions over the past couple of years.
We would like to ensure that all clubs and players understand what the proposed schedule from the
Camogie Association will mean to them for the 2021 season so that they can make an informed decision
before the poll by the Camogie Association.
With the current proposal, Club fixtures would look something like this :-
3 League Cup matches while intercounty league is happening and straight into club championship, which
needs around 9 weeks to be run in Dublin. The likelihood is that there would be insufficient time for a
minor or newly proposed under 20 championship in Dublin before intercounty players would have to
return to county teams. The League Cup would then recommence during the intercounty Championship.
The Dublin Camogie Executive have already made out a draft fixture plan on the assumption that the
Camogie Association was going to align with the GAA and LGFA schedules. Allowing for "all" club league
cup and Intercounty League matches to run concurrently. Then a one to two week break from
competitive games to allow intercounty players to return to training with their clubs. Depending on the
duration of our Inter County team in Championship, club Championship games will start and run for
about 9 weeks. A Minor and under 20 Championship is proposed to run after the adult club
championship. Should there be interest from clubs for the over 20’s a 7’s competition can be arranged
after club championship.
The Dublin Camogie Executive, hope this clarifies any issues players may have before being polled by
the Camogie Association.
Yours in Sport,
Dublin Camogie Executive
