Running from June 6th-12th, Hurl Smart Week aims to increase activity levels of all ages, male and female by providing a programme of events in local camogie clubs. 82 clubs nationwide are signed up to take part in the week.

Clubs will run a number of events with the aim of getting everyone active through Camogie/Hurling activities such as relay races, obstacle courses, wall ball challenges, target practice challenges, nutritional talks etc. Catherine Neary, President of the Camogie Association said: “This is the 5th year of this initiative with an increase in clubs taking part year on year. The Camogie Association is keen to support communities and families in being physically active through this initiative and are delighted to support the Dream Bike Campaign as part of the week.”

Speaking about the initiative ChildFund CEO Michael Kiely said: “We are delighted and honored to be a part of the Camogie Association’s ‘Hurl Smart Week’, a fantastic event showcasing the passion for Camogie in local communities across Ireland.
