Sportsgirls podcast: Waterford Camogie dispute rumbles on

On July 19th the Waterford camogie team issued a strong statement to the camogie association “voicing their disappointment that their ALL-Ireland Senior Championship clash with Cork, was changed at short notice from Saturday to Sunday meaning that players will be missing”. The rule does state that an All-Ireland camogie fixture can be changed given there is five days’ notice but what is not taken into consideration is the effort and commitment that the players are giving up to play for their county as most of them have jobs and taking time off would be a factor.

On the recent camogie podcast former Limerick camogie player Fiona Hickey who captained the intermediate team to an All-Ireland title back in 2014 and Westmeath coach Adrian O’ Sullivan voiced their strong option on the current situation.

Adrian highlighted that fact that at one of the Waterford championship games that the referee turned up with no lines people or umpires and that their game against Tipp was called off due to a serious injury in which there was no ambulance present resulting in the game been abandoned, and that they found out on social media on Tuesday that their game was changed from Saturday to Sunday. Fiona highlighted that it was very unfair on the players who have given up their time and effort to play in the match and that fortunately it’s within the rules if a fixture needs to be changed that it must be within five days’ notice and that the camogie association never took into consideration the effect it would have on the players to go and change their schedules.

Both Adrian and Aoife highlighted that Waterford player Beth Carton who won and All star last year is the stand out player this year and that it would it be interesting to see to how the association will react to the statement and that the players deserve better, and that sport is about the narrative and the people who are involved.
