Kildare Camogie squad, managed by Limerick legend Joe Quaid, are understood to have been operating off a skeleton squad for most of this year

GAA

It is understood that the Kildare intermediate camogie squad had not trained collectively in over a month before the decision was taken to pull the Lilies out of the All-Ireland intermediate championship.

In a hard-hitting letter to clubs in the county on Tuesday night, the Kildare Camogie team hit out at what they say is the "disrespectful" county board decision to withdraw them from the championship against their wishes.

The Lilies, managed by Limerick legend Joe Quaid, are understood to have been operating off a skeleton squad for most of this year with just enough players available to make up a team for the bulk of their Division 3A League campaign.

It is believed the team haven’t trained together since early April.

Average numbers for training this year are said to have been between 10 and 15 per session, a major drop on last year with a string of players unavailable this year due to travel and others moving away from home.
