Carnew Camogie Update
It’s been a busy month for the club with the League season well underway. In Division 1 of the Adult League, our senior team have been out against Ballinacor and Knockananna and gained invaluable experience in both, with the younger players a great addition.
Congrats to our U16 team who saw off the challenge from Avondale in the League last week on a scoreline of 4-4 to 1-0.
In the Development League so far, the U-14s have beaten Avondale and Aughrim and participated in the Feile qualifiers in Ballinakill on Good Friday. As a host club, the U-14s will play in the national Feile na nGael competition, hosting a team from Fermanagh.
The U-12s participated in the Caman to Croker blitz on Easter Monday. Congratulation and well done to a great bunch of girls. They played matches against Fingallians (Dublin), St. Cillians (Offaly) and Setanta (Carlow). A big thanks to Millie Brennan who represented the club as a referee. Thanks to all the players and parents for another great day. The U12 Go Games Blitz Programme has kicked off with blitzes completed in Knockananna and Kiltegan.
The U-8s and U-10s are back training and waiting to start their blitz programme also.
Ballyellis N.S. Camogie
Heartiest congratulations to the Ballyellis N.S. girls mini 7’s Camogie team who created history last week by winning the Camogie mini 7’s county final for the very first time. From the very first moment right through to the final whistle the girls played superbly with great skill and determination.

A huge crowd turned out for the Wicklow Fleadh and Kare event in Tinahely on Saturday 22nd April. The aroma of fresh home-baked cakes enticed the fleadh goers and competitors into the community hall throughout the day. Volunteers served pots of tea and coffee as well as a wide selection of home baked treats including coffee cakes, victoria sponges, chocolate éclairs, cupcakes, apple pies, biscuit cakes and much more. All these delicious offerings were baked by volunteers. Freshly made sandwiches were also served.
In excess of €1,500 was raised from refreshments and proceeds go to KARE Tinahely Local Service. Established in Tinahely in 2003, KARE provides support to people who have an intellectual disability and their families.
Thanks to the Tinahely branch of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann for generously offering the proceeds from the refreshments to KARE. Sincere thanks to our sponsors. A special thanks to the volunteers who gave so generously of their time and to the bakers for the fantastic variety of home-made cakes and treats. It was the spirit of ‘meitheal’ and working together at it’s very best. Thanks also to the many people who came along especially to lend their generous support to KARE.
