Camogie to Complete Liberty All Irelands

The Camogie Association has confirmed its approach to the 2020 season and will play the Liberty Insurance All Ireland Championship between October and December.

The format and dates will be confirmed at a later stage but it is good to lay down a marker that the tournament will be played.

The Association did say yesterday that the competitions, at Senior, Intermediate and Junior level will begin on a round-robin basis with increased groups before progressing to the knockout stages.

The 2020 All-Ireland Under 16 Championships will also take take place between October and December 2020.

The 2020/2021 AIB All-Ireland Club Championships will proceed as normal but with a revised calendar that will run into 2021.

The 2020 Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues and the Tesco All Ireland Minor Championships, both of which began in February have now been cancelled.

“The Association wishes to acknowledge that the cancellation of many competitions is of great disappointment to those involved however due to these unprecedented times many such difficult decisions have had to be made,” said the Association in a statement yesterday.

“The health and safety of our members is of paramount importance and the ‘Safe Return to Gaelic Games’ plan offers a route back to activity, subject to the government timelines being achieved in the weeks and months ahead.”

“We thank all of our members for their continued co-operation and support throughout this process.”

“We also wish to sincerely thank all of our competition sponsors for their support and understanding during this period and regarding the significant changes to this year’s calendar and competitions.”

The focus in the coming weeks will be on the return to club activity which the Camogie Association has been planning for alongside the Ladies Gaelic Football Association and the GAA.
