Camo­gie Chair hope­ful of games go­ing ahead

Bray People - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW Camo­gie Chair­per­son, Donna Ola­han, is hope­ful that all games at adult and ju­ve­nile lev­els will be back up and run­ning by the weekend af­ter a full stop was brought to all ac­tiv­i­ties fol­low­ing the rev­e­la­tion that the county had no Child Wel­fare Of­fi­cer in place.

With no­body in that role the Chair­per­son said that the county just couldn't take the risk of any­thing hap­pen­ing to a child and that was the rea­son why all games were put on hold.

“We are hop­ing to have all games up and run­ning by the end of the week,” said Donna. “The po­si­tion wasn't filled and we couldn't af­ford to let any games go ahead be­cause there are un­der­age girls play­ing at Se­nior level as well.

“We are cur­rently speak­ing to two people in con­nec­tion with the role of Child Wel­fare Of­fi­cer and fin­gers crossed we will have the po­si­tion filled by the end of the week,” she added.

This is an un­for­tu­nate de­vel­op­ment for the camo­gie body in County Wick­low who have suf­fered sev­eral set backs in the last few years. There has been no county team for the last two years and for the sec­ond year run­ning there will be no Gle­nealy Se­nior team in com­pe­ti­tion which is a ter­ri­ble loss to the county as a whole.

The 2014 league had just played one round of fix­tures with some en­ter­tain­ing clashes be­tween the top sides. How­ever, all com­pe­ti­tions are now on hold un­til the po­si­tion in ques­tion is filled.
