Mountmellick Community School

Camogie is an ancient Irish game similar to hurling but played by ladies only.  A hurl made of Ash is used and a small leather ball called a Sliotor.  In Mountmellick Community School, we are fortunate as we have both a senior and junior camogie team. We also have excellent outdoor and indoor facilities and many highly skilful players.  The school participates in numerous competitions each year including the Leinster Colleges Camogie and the Vocational Schools League also. With a promising up and coming junior team and a experienced senior team, the future looks bright for Mountmellick Community School camogie. Many of the students who play for the school are highly commendable players who have played not only for their local clubs but also on the Laois County teams. We, the students feel that camogie is a valuable asset to the broad range of extra curricular activities available in the school as it allows us to intermix, not only with other years but with players from all over the country.
