Clough-Ballacolla Camogie (9)

Clough-Ballacolla Camogie club was one of just four clubs nationwide to be selected to take part in a brand new Club Development Award initiative.

Over the entire club season the committee, coaches and three young players (Clodagh Duggan, Tírna Bergin and Kate Brennan) took on the role of PR-Óg’s.

They have been working together to complete different tasks, working on things such as social media, training plans and coach training.

All the work carried out was documented, recorded and submitted to achieve the award.

Liam Clancy, Club Development Award Coordinator, visited the Community Hall in Ballacolla on Monday to present chairman Sean Duggan and secretary Barbara Geoghan with the award.

As well as the beautiful personalised crystal award, Clough-Ballacolla received training equipment to the value of €200, coaching sessions and access to coach workshops.

Medals were presented to all their super stars in the making that attended on the night and they enjoyed a fun camogie session with Liam Clancy.

PRO Tara Delaney says that the future is looking bright for Clough-Ballacolla Camogie Club.

She said: “The club is extremely thankful to the Camogie Association for the opportunity to participate in the initiative.
