  • First 10 mins ground striking only, can lift for remaining 10 mins.
  • Focus is on participation, playing the game correctly, doing the skills of the game correctly and not about winning.
  • Will structure it around the Go-Games so players have to stay in their areas, allowing all players to get more touches of the ball, and stopping stronger players from dominating the game.

First four blitzes – non competitive

Last two blitzes – competitive, 10 mins a half with 5 min break.’


Inniskeen had a home venue for the Louth Senior League fixture against Cooley. This was a well contested game that showed Cooley were no push over. Inniskeen put in a very gusty performance to emerge winners by a 2 point margin. A big welcome to Gillian Hamill who has returned to Camogie after a few years absence, it is great to see Gillian back in action.

Still a few Senior Registration fees outstanding, players are asked to bring it along to training as soon as possible.


Training continues every Wednesday in Grattan Pairc – Good numbers have been reported to date and hopefully will continue for the underage training which has enhanced their progress.

Best wishes and congratulations to Pauline Boylan and Dermot on the birth of Baby Casey.  Hopefully Pauline will be back in training in the not too distant future.
