CHLOE MOREY is to retire from inter-county camogie.

An All Star in 2013, Chloe has informed Clare senior manager, John Carmody she will not be part of the county panel in 2024.

A member of the Clare senior camogie team since she was sixteen Chloe has been one of the most recognisable camogie players in the country. Her trademark ‘stars and stripes’ bandana added to her profile but it will no longer be seen with the county colours. In 2010, she captained the Clare team which competed in the All-Ireland final, losing out to Galway 2-12 2-8.

She was part of the fourth Clare team to win the All-Ireland junior camogie title in 2008. Aged fifteen, she started at midfield alongside Deirdre Murphy as the team managed by the Hanley brothers, Colm and Eoghan defeated Offaly 2-8 1-10. What was then Clare’s first team had lost All-Ireland finals in 2003, 2005 and 2007 prior to this.

In 2012, the Sixmilebridge woman was part of the Clare team to win the Munster senior camogie championship. A year later, she was honoured with an All Star award at wing-back and is one of only three women from the county to have such an accolade alongside Catherine O’Loughlin (2005) and Máire McGrath (2014).

Morey took a break from the county colours in 2021 before returning last year. She has been one of the more outspoken members of the WGPA in advocating for better treatment of female inter-county players.

At senior level with Clare she played under seven different managers, namely Bertie Sherlock, Patsy Fahey, John Carmody, Colm Honan, Trish O’Grady, Ger O’Connell and Conor Dolan.

Now teaching at her alma mater in Shannon, St Caimin’s Community School where was part of a camogie team to win provincial honours, her current colleagues include former Clare defender Carol O’Leary and ex Clarecastle camogie player Tara O’Loughlin.

Two years ago, Chloe alongside her first cousin Seadna opened Morey Movement, a first-class gym located in their native Sixmilebridge. The facility has since been used by teams across the county including the Clare senior hurlers.

Chloe has regularly influenced the role of her parents, Mike and Valerie in encouraging her camogie career. Her brothers, Caimin and Alex have won senior championships with Sixmilebridge in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020. Her younger sister, Melissa has been one of her loyal supporters or harsher critics.

County secretary, Ann Sanz paid tribute to Chloe at this week’s convention for her contribution to Clare camogie.
