New Kilkenny Camogie Chairperson Theresa Alyward said that the sport has continued to thrive in the county despite the pandemic.
Kilkenny has won two all Irelands in that time between senior and minor, with clubs also aiming for Leinster and All Ireland success.
This weekend sees Myshall, Barrow Rangers, and Dicksboro all aiming for provincial honours proving that interest has not waned in Kilkenny due to covid.
“The promotion of the game has kept the interest there and kept the girls interested,” said Theresa.
“Girls want to play and it’s a great thing and everybody knows the benefits of camogie and the friendships they build and the bonds they build in teams and clubs, thankfully so far I don’t think covid has had a negative effect on it” she added.
Theresa says she’s also optimistic that the new split-season format will be a huge benefit to the local club scene.
Registration numbers for camogie clubs increased locally last year and she said that this year’s calendar brings a more dedicated focus for club players.
