Wednesday, 8th March 2023: Electric Ireland has today launched the 2023 Electric Ireland Camogie All-Ireland Minor Championships, teaming up with Cork Camogie legend and 10-time All-Star, Gemma O’Connor, to support the announcement.
Since launching their new partnership with the Camogie Association earlier this year, it has been a busy few months within Camogie with the recent conclusion of a jam-packed Electric Ireland Camogie Third level Championships calendar. Tomorrow, Electric Ireland will announce the Electric Ireland Camogie Third Level Rising Starts 2023 Team of the Year. This announcement can be followed on Electric Ireland’s social channels.
This year, to celebrate its first year of sponsorship of the Electric Ireland Camogie All-Ireland Minor Championships, Electric Ireland will spotlight three players each week from the Championship action across their social channels, with the Player of the Week being revealed weekly on Electric Ireland’s Twitter page (@electricireland). Electric Ireland also looks forward to celebrating the incredible achievements of these players later in year when they will celebrate the recipients of the Electric Ireland Camogie Minor Star Awards.
Electric Ireland’s Minor Moments podcast will also return for a second season, featuring a fantastic line-up of guests from the worlds of Camogie, Hurling and Football, as they reflect on the defining moments from their Minor playing days and how it shaped them, both on and off the pitch.
