BREAKING: Laois Camogie pull out of 2020 competitions due to ‘unavailability of players’

Laois Camogie team

Camogie in Laois has been on an upward curve for the last number of years but this news is certainly a blow.

In a statement released this morning, Laois Camogie have confirmed that they are unable to field an adult team for the 2020 season.

Citing ‘unavailability of players’, Laois Camogie say they will not be able to take part in either the Leinster or All-Ireland Championships.

Laois competed in the Leinster senior championship in 2019 and in the Intermediate All-Ireland championship where they just missed out on a semi final place.

The statement reads as follows:

“Following an Executive Meeting held on Monday January 6 2020 it is with great regret that Laois Camogie are not in a position to field an Intermediate Team for the 2020 competitions due to unavailability of players.

“Laois Camogie would sincerely like to thank Kieran Delaney and his management team for their time, commitment and professionalism to date.

“Laois Camogie would also like to acknowledge the players who did commit but unfortunately there wasn’t enough to form a panel.”
