Camogie chiefs in Clare are confident both adult and underage championships will go ahead this summer.

Reigning Munster champions, Scariff/Ogonnelloe will be aiming to their retain crown as county winners when the championship commences later this summer.

Despite reports that August 1st had been identified as the start date for the Clare senior camogie championship, this has been rejected by members of the Clare Camogie Executive.

It is expected that the adult championships will start in August and may reach the knockout stages by the end of the month. Draws have yet to take place and a fixture schedule is tipped to be released once the draws have been completed.

The Clare Echo understands that the current format of two groups of four will be maintained for the senior championship in Clare. A member of the County Board stressed that the draws had yet to take place and further detail would be made available when it was known.

“We are hoping that we will be able to accommodate championships for both adult and underage,” a spokesperson for the Camogie Board commented.
