THE EOS IT Solutions Ulster Schools’ 2022/23 All-Star camogie team was announced on Wednesday at a reception in UU Jordanstown.
A process that began with over 100 players continued with 45 selected for Tusday’s final trial.
“This All-Star scheme has been in operation now for almost two decades and has recognised many players who have become fixtures in their county senior team,” commented Ulster Schools’ Chairperson Catherine McGourty.
“The standard of camogie was the highest we have seen and continues to rise each year. Therefore it is a huge personal achievement for the players to come through the trials and make the final panel. They are a credit to themselves, their families, their coaches at both club and school level and we look forward to hearing more about them in the years ahead.”
“I want also to thank University of Ulster Gaelic Academy for the facilities to run the trials and for their generosity in providing a jersey, sponsored by EOS IT Solutions, for each of the 45 players who returned for the final trial.”
Unlike the GAA equivalent, a panel of 24 players is selected in camogie and they will represent Ulster in the Schools’ Inter-Provincial before Christmas. Ulster last won the competition in 2018 captained by current Antrim senior player Maeve Kelly.
This season sees three sisters in the selection for the first time – McIntosh sisters from Ballycastle, twins Elen and Faye and their younger sister Janey.
Eavanne Martin, Katie Molloy, Rachel Keenan and Ciara Fitzsimons were all in last year’s team.
