New Camogie Club Is Formed

In 1991 an interest to restart camogie in Cooley was ignited by Nicholas Rafferty, Marie Donnelly and Ann Callan by holding a training session in St Patrick’s Club, Lordship with a view to starting up in the peninsula. Interest was poor so a decision was made to try again in Cooley and with a good squad of potential players turning up it moved on from there so by end of February 1991 the club was formed and training started mainly at underage through to U16.

League Final Winners

The first title was won by the club in 1995 when the girls took the U16 League by beating the St Kevin’s team from Philipstown.

Also played the same team in U16 Championship final that same year but beaten narrowly by St Kevin’s again Although competing in several finals from then onwards Cooley achieved no other underage titles as other club were too strong.

Progress Through The Ranks

The club then progressed to U18, U21 and eventually Senior and took the senior championship titles in 2007 and again in 2012 As players dwindled away it was time to recruit new players at underage level and with Ann Kane taking on a batch of girls from u12 to U14 in 2012 and continuing yearly which left the club in a strong position and entered U12, U14, U16 U18 and senior.
