Saturday, October 22 is sure to be a very long day for Na Piarsaigh Camogie Club when they hold a marathon ‘camogathon’ from dawn to dusk.  Club players from under-six to adult level are preparing to play camogie for ten hours from 8am to 6pm to raise funds for the ongoing development of the club.  

Na Piarsaigh Camogie Club was formed in 1992 and fields teams in all underage grades and is currently the only Senior Club in Limerick city.

Club Chairman Pat O’Neill said, “This is to help with the running costs and the future development of the club. Our aim as a club is to promote the sport of Camogie and to ensure that it can be played in a safe and enjoyable environment.”

Along with its two adult sides, the club has teams competing in all underage age competitions in Limerick and several players have lined out in the county colours this year.  The Liam MacCarthy Cup will be on display and with some of the All-Ireland winning Limerick team in attendance, the event is sure to generate great excitement around the community and everyone is welcome to pop over at any stage during the day.  

There will also be a Hook and Ladder coffee van in the club car park and all proceeds will go towards the 3 for 3 Breast Cancer Awareness Walk charity event which fundraises for the local Symptomatic Breast Cancer Unit in University Hospital Limerick.

Local businesses are invited to sponsor an hour of camogie action for €300. Individual contributions can be made by contacting any committee member or by logging on to the Gofundme page HERE
