Galway Camogie

  • Galway hammered Offaly in Group 1 of the Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Camogie Championship.

    The reigning champions winning by 3-13 to 0-3.

  • The All-Ireland senior camogie final takes centre stage at Croke Park later this afternoon.

    Galway and Kilkenny will meet in a repeat of the league final earlier this year.

    Ann Downey's Kilkenny are hoping to avoid a third successive defeat in the decider.

    Throw-in is at 4.15pm in that last game of today's triple-header at HQ.

    At 2-o'clock Galway and Westmeath meet in the Intermediate final.

  • Kilkenny are the 2020 Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Senior Camogie Champions.

    They've beaten Galway by three points this evening.

    The Cats dethroned the Champions winning out in the end on a 1-14 to 1-11 scoreline.

  • The Galway Camogie Board has agreed to change the date of their All Ireland Championship group fixture with Cork.

    The Group 1 encounter was due to be played on November 7th, on the same day as the Cork footballers are due to play Kerry.

    Strike action from the Cork players had been mooted if fixture clashes continued.

    The Galway-Cork camogie game has been moved to Sunday November 8th.

  • The Galway Camogie senior team are preparing for their All-Ireland final against Kilkenny on Saturday week 12th December in Croke Park.

    It's a repeat of last year's final, which Galway won.

    As it's a 7pm throw-in, the team will have to stay over in Dublin and funds are urgently needed.

    Galway Camogie are currently undertaking a fundraising initiative- #challenge4galway - which challenges all of county's clubs and individuals not linked to camogie clubs to complete a 40 day challenge that pushes them out of their comfort zone.

    It could be running or walking 10km a day for 40 days, or doing 100 burpees a day for 40 days, and collecting sponsorship.

    20% of the funds raised will go to the Galway Hospice.

  • The Galway Camogie team are being praised for their sporting gesture during yesterday's 45 point National League win over Wexford in Gort.

    The Model County could field just 13 players for the Division 1 encounter.

    Having scored eight goals before the break, Galway decided to withdraw two players to make the second half a more even contest.

  • Connacht Rugby will have the Galway Senior Camogie team as guests of honour at The Sportsground on Saturday.

    The All-Ireland champs will be introduced to the crowd at HT of their #GuinnessPRO14 game with Benetton.

    Kickoff is at 7:35.

  • Galway Camogie Star Thérèse Maher will feature on tonight's Laochra Gael programme on TG4.

    The eighth of eleven children from a famous hurling family, Thérèse stood out from a very young age.

    She made her Galway debut at just 16, and it seemed that she was destined for success.

    But the win on the big day eluded her and Thérèse lost five All Ireland Finals.

    On top of this, she lost both her mother and her father during this time. And so, there was widespread jubilation when, on All Ireland Final Day in 2013, in her last ever game, Thérèse Maher fulfilled her destiny.

    The programme is aired on TG4 tonight from 9.30pm.
