Camogie is an uniquely Irish team sport, it is Europe’s oldest field game and regarded by many as the fastest field sport in the world. Played with a stick and ball, it is the women’s variant of hurling. Ulster Camogie’s mission is to develop, strengthen, and promote the game of Camogie across Ulster, making it available to all women and girls and by doing so making it the first choice female sporting code in the Province.
The Ulster Camogie Council is the regional governing body for the eight Camogie playing Counties of Ulster. It is linked to the Central Camogie Council which acts as the governing body of the Camogie Association. The Ulster Camogie Council is a full member of the Ulster GAA Confederation of Councils and has a formal partnership and close links with the Ulster Council GAA.
Camogie in Ulster is community-based. It uses Camogie to represent and to energise communities, giving them a focus and contributing to their well-being and sustainability. As communities change and develop, Ulster Camogie will reflect and respond to those changes. It will do that from a position which is anti-sectarian; anti-racist; and which encourages the active and enjoyable involvement of everyone.
