Yes let the girls ring out for Christmas. Having a Camog about the house means good craic, plenty of energy and plenty of broken ornaments and cracked mirrors. Every day’s a practice day when it comes to camogie and in our house pre season starts in the festive season when Setanta Claus drops off a bag of new gear. His secret supply of sliotars, some new hot Dakota gym gear and a new jersey or three.
1. Gym Range
First up, the O’Neills brilliant new Dakota range of new gym clothes, as worn by Cork Camogie’s own Ashling Thompson. Designed to be worn by Irish female athletes, it fits well. It’s practical. It looks great, feels classy, super fabrics that keep their shape and colour. Hardwearing and tough too.
2. Hurling Helmet
Our helmets are savage popular with camogie players, the washable lining helps so your hair don’t stink! Get one in your club colours, or add the bling of some weird colour combos, a badge and your name.
3. Ash Hurley
