Our Youth section caters for over three hundred and fifty children from the Cabra Area. Within this section there is also our Comogie section that caters for teams from nine years up to sixteen years old.
The committee that oversees the running of this section is Catherine Kirby (Secretary), Emma O’Farrell, Terry Mc Keogh, Barbara Kelly (Camogie Rep) and Lar Kelly (Referee Co-ordinator). This committee meets every Tuesday to co-ordinate the team’s weekly activities.
It is one of most important sections of the club as the children who join here are the clubs life blood for the future. The club has a code of ethics for managers, parents, and children and every manger is vetted by the statutory agency in child protection.
