We had a great turnout in comparison to other years for our AGM. Our outgoing chairperson Sam Swayne welcomed everyone to the meeting and thanked all coaches, managers, parents and volunteers for there help throughout the year. She also highlighted the ongoing issues facing the club with regards volunteers and people taking up officer roles. Sam thanked all the local business and people who supported our spring/summer draw especially those who donated prizes or volunteered by selling tickets, and also to those who volunteered for our flag day.
Our outgoing secretary congratulated all intercounty/ divisional representatives for 2019 and wished those selected for 2020 panels the very best of luck. Donie also highlighted the ongoing issue of the dual player, and how fixtures are fixed by county boards leaving girls in impossible situations or at risk of burnout. Donie also Followed up with what Sam said in how we need more volunteers if we are to survive as a club. “Help is always welcome, be it at u8 tying laces or sending texts at minor level.”
Treasurers report was also read out along with team reports.
U8: Numbers remained fairly steady all year with 25 registered members, a number that we would not have seen historically. There was an additional15 regular u6s training with the boys. The girls really developed throughout the year and they seemed to really enjoy it, it was also great to see so many of them join the u9/10s for blitz throughout the summer. Our u8 had there last training session of the year on Friday last, where they had a party in the hall afterwards. Well done to all girls on there commitment all year.
U10: Our under 9’s and 10’s have trained together every Wednesday night since last February 6th. We started out in the hall and went outdoors as soon as the weather allowed us to. Our numbers grew steadily over the last 10 months and we have had over 34 young ladies in the hall for the last 4 week’s (YES , its loud!!).
We had 4 matches between Midleton/Dungourney, st. Catherines and Fr O Neills ,over the start of the summer. We then split the teams to u9 and u10 in order for girls to be more evenly matched. Our u 9s had 6 blitz and improved hugely with each one. They competed well in each match and really began to get stuck in. Believe me when I say, there is NO fear with most of these girls!! The u10 girls were not so lucky in the amount of blitzes, they only had 4 but again, we saw a massive improvement in the girls.We had over 40 sessions with them this year. We finished up on Saturday with an end of year blitz.
U12: Overall we had a very enjoyable year in 2019. This year we had 18 girls registered made up of 16 U11’s and 2 U12’s.Our Season began back on Jan 28th in the hall and continued every Mon untill Mar 25th when we moved out on the pitch. We then continued to train twice a week for rest of the year on Mon and Fridays. Our first camoige action was a local blitz held in Castlemartyr on 1st April where we competed with the hosts along with Dungourney and Carrigtowill. Our U12 camoige team also had the honour of playing at half time against Dungarvan in the very successfull Legends match Cork V Waterford which was held at club on May 5th 2019 where the girls put on a great display of the skills of Camoige.The U12 League format put us at home with Cobh and Castlemartyr with away trips to Tracton, Aghada and Blackrock. We were then placed in the second part of the league away to Dungourney and Na Piarsiagh and a home game with Courcey Rovers. We finished up our final training session of the season on Oct 21st.
U13\U14:Great start to the year by winning our first 3 league match’s v Ballinora, Na Piarsiagh, and Castlemartr. We lost out last League game. For championship we won our first game away to Sliabh rua, We then Lost to laochra Óg, black rock and clonakilty. We won our next game against st Finbarrsand lost our final game v midleton. We struggled at times this year due to numbers but each girl gave it there all
U15/U16: We did very well in u15s again this year and where unlucky to lose against Carrigtwohill in the east cork A semi-final. We were graded A for the league, we played Cobh which we lost by a point, and won our next two games against Na Piarsiagh and Douglas, and lost to Enniskeane and then ToMidleton by a last minute goal put an end to our league. For championship we played Aghabullogue first which we lost and then Ballygarvan in the next round and credit to the girls who were 10 points down and came back, we were very unlucky to lose by a point in the end.we lost both so then bowed out of the championship. A lot of these girls played at junior level for the first time this year.
Minor: We trained predominately with the juniors this year to build up numbers for junior level and also to give girls the experience of playing adult level. We played Rockban, SliabhRua, Ballinascarthy, Ballinhassig in the league. We got out of the group and played Mallow in the ¼ final and then lost toGrenagh in the league semi-final. For championship we got drawn in a preliminary round in which we lost to Grenagh. We got a bye for the next round and then played Castlelyonsin the next round. The girls where cheated on the day when Castlelyons play 15 against 12 players for the whole game. Credit to each of the 12 girls who gave an absolute display of Camogie, despite an uphill battle. It was a bitter end to a very good season for this group of players.
Junior B: Our juniors regraded to junior B this year due to a lack of older players and because the team consisted of a majority of u16/17s. We played Millstreet, Castlelyons, Ballinora and Inniscarra in the league, We also had to concede points to bride rovers and mallow. The championship didn’t go much better and we had the bare minimum at most games, we played Ballinora, Castlelyons & Bride rovers. We lost all 3 games. We had a end of year night at the club along with the minor team.
We played Castlemartyr in a challenge throughout the year in which we won well we also had an end of year night in the club which all the girls enjoyed.
Election of Officers: when it came to the election of Officersthere was no one nominated or volunteered to fill the chairperson or secretary rolls, therefore the election of Officers had to stop until these positions can be filled. Meeting postponed to a later date. Youghal Camogie Club is now on hold and ran by youghal GAA until positions filled. Please contact email@example.com for anyenquiries.

BROOKE'S SUPER-VALU YOUGHAL have been the main sponsor of our club for the last eight years plus and the generosity shown to the club in that time has been very much appreciated.From the good days back in 2013 to the lean times at the moment, the sponsorship continues to grow.We at CLG EOCHAILL are delighted with the continued sponsorship from Ken and the team at BROOKE'S SUPER-VALU YOUGHAL and wish them all the best for the future.
