Star Secrets with Westmeath’s Muireann Scally

This Sunday September 10th, Westmeath will take on Dublin in the All Ireland Premier Junior Final. Before the game, we caught up with one of Westmeath’s influential player’s Muireann Scally. We asked Muireann about her career and some of Sportstalk’s ‘Star Secrets’.

Inter-county Career

How long have you been playing inter- county camogie? Since I was 16

How much have the demands of playing inter-county camogie changed since you first started?

The professionalism, physicality and pace of the game has changed. The past two years we have been doing work in JG Elite gym. It is so important, you have to do it to compete with other teams. Also, the support for camogie and media attention has improved. It has improved across Ireland and within Westmeath.

In this day and age, most people would say your mad for giving up so much of your time for inter-county camogie, what would your normal response be to them? It’s an honour to be picked to play for your county and represent Westmeath. Not everyone is in a position to do it so it is an honour.

What are you most looking forward to about the All Ireland Final on Sunday? Playing in Croke Park.
