Cavan’s Loreto College pulled from their All-Ireland Semi Final tomorrow

The Loreto School in Cavan may have just missed out on competing in an All-Ireland Semi Final because of exams.

The school’s Senior Camogie team won the Ulster Colleges title last week, and their All-Ireland Semi Final was scheduled to take place tomorrow, Saturday February 11th.

However thirteen members of the senior panel are currently sitting mock examinations, and the school says it is unrealistic to expect them to play the fixture, which involves a three and a half hour return journey to Limerick.

The school claims it put the case to Croke Park Officials, but they have refused to reschedule the match.

Instead, Croke Park has told the Loreto College that St Clare’s in Ballyjamesduff will now be playing in their place, however, St Clare’s says they will not play the match on a point of principal.

Principal of the school Angela Mc Garvey says the students feel that ladies GAA isn’t viewed as seriously as men’s.


Meanwhile Northern Sound News contacted the GAA in relation to the issue and are awaiting a statement.
