Camogie fans in Mayo can now purchase 120th anniversary commemorative jerseys

The Camogie Association has unveiled its 120th anniversary commemorative jerseys at Croke Park, and they are available to purchase now for fans of the sport in Mayo and throughout the country.

The jerseys, in two bespoke designs, are manufactured by O’Neills, and can be purchased from this link: https://www.oneills.com/shop-by-team/gaa-county/camogie.html. The jersey prices start from €35 for children and €75 for adults.

The first official camogie match after the formation of the national governing body – the Camogie Association – was played on July 17 in 1904 between Dublin clubs Keatings and Cúchulainns.

To mark this milestone, Camán to 120 commemorative blitzes will take place in Pairc Tailteann in Navan, Meath, Hastings Insurance MacHale Park in Castlebar, Mayo, and the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick on July 17, where over 3,000 Under 12 players will participate throughout the day.

This launch kicks off an exciting period of celebration for the Camogie Association, which will see further activity at the All-Ireland finals in August, a gala dinner this summer as well as club camogie celebration days later in the year, where each club across the island of Ireland and internationally will celebrate camogie in their own unique way.

Speaking at the launch, Brian Molloy, Uachtarán of the Camogie Association, said: “Our UNESCO recognised national sport has been played in Ireland back through the mists of time but 2024 is a particularly big year for the Camogie Association as we celebrate 120 years since our formation as a national governing body.

“I’m delighted to be at the headquarters of Gaelic Games to unveil our fabulous commemorative jerseys, one of the many steps we are taking to mark our big anniversary.

“We are sure that our members in Ireland and indeed across the world will love the commemorative jerseys and I urge as many as possible to go onto the O’Neills site to buy one and wear it with pride over the course of this season. We would like to take the opportunity to thank O’Neills for working with us to produce such a high quality product for this great occasion.”

The two commemorative jerseys – in aqua/lilac and dark grey/purple – were designed by O’Neills and produced in Ireland.

Joining Mr. Molloy to unveil the jerseys were player representatives from Faughs Celtic Camogie Club and Good Counsel Liffey Gaels GAA & Camogie Club, Dublin, Arklow Rocks Camogie in Wicklow, and Moycarkey Borris Camogie in Tipperary.
