Kildare Camogie Statement on Withdrawal of Senior Team; Kildare Ladies U14 Football team for tonight's Leinster final, Kildare GAA Fixtures, City v Real Madrid 2nd leg
Following the recent controversy regarding the withdrawal of the Kildare Senior Camogie team from the All Ireland championship without player consultation, the Kildare Camogie Executive representatives, members of the Kildare panel, The Camogie Association and GPA convened a meeting last night.
It was agreed that Kildare will not participate in the 2023 Intermediate All-Ireland Camogie Championship. This very difficult decision was reached by the Kildare Executive and Players after extensive discussion.
All parties committed to undertake an independent review of all matters pertaining to the preparation and participation of inter county camogie teams representing Kildare.
This independent review will be overseen by Ard Chomhairle of the Camogie Association, and will involve the County Board, clubs, players and other relevant parties. The goal is to improve structures and supports, to enable Kildare Camogie to perform at the highest levels, concludes the statement.
The Kildare u14 lady footballers play Longford in the Leinster final tonight in Kinnegad at 7.30pm.
