Change in policy needed regarding hosting of clubs camps before Cúl Camps

in Home/Sport by

A change in policy will be required from Croke Park if clubs are allowed to hold their own equivalent summer camp prior to the Kelloggs Cúl Camps.

Lissycasey GAA Club had submitted a motion before the annual County Convention of Clare GAA as a follow up to a topic they raised at the June meeting of the County Board. They sought approval for clubs “to host their own club summer camp on a date before or after their Cúl Camp”. The motion received support from Clarecastle.

Despite flagging the matter six months ago, Lissycasey’s James Meere said they have yet to receive any correspondence from Croke Park. “It is something we want clarification on for the year ahead. Can we hold our camp on or before the Cúl Camp,” he stated.

“It is going to have to be a change in policy in Croke Park to see if it can go ahead before it,” outgoing Chairperson Joe Cooney responded. “We can look to see if policy can be changed. We don’t know what the outcome will be,” he added.
