Lots of our girls play Camogie. Some girls also successfully represent their local clubs. The camogie teams in St Joseph’s Mercy Navan have been very successful over the past few years. We are very lucky to have a lot of interest in playing camogie from our girls, many of whom already play with a club, or who decide to pick up camogie in secondary school.
Every year, we enter the Junior and Senior competitions. In the Senior competition this year, we will played St. Finian’s College, Mullingar, and Mercy Secondary School, Kilbeggan - winning both games to qualify from their group.
In the Junior competition, we met St. Finian’s College, Mullingar, Castlepollard Community College, Mercy Secondary School, Kilbeggan, Killina Presentation Secondary School and Colaiste Naomh Cormac. Unfortunately, the Junior team did not progress from that tough group, but enjoyed the competitive games.

The aim in our school is to help our Camogie girls to maximise their potential. The Camogie club is a confident, modern, community based club that offers our girls the opportunity to develop as players on the pitch and leaders off the pitch. The Camogie Association is an independent voluntary organisation, established in 1904. It is one of the oldest women’s sporting organisations and has a rich and wonderful history. Providing young women with the opportunity to play Camogie and other Gaelic sports is an integral part of encouraging them to stay with sport though their teenage years and later into life.
Our vision is to provide an inclusive, enjoyable and lifelong involvement in Camogie. Our values are inclusiveness, respect, excellence, co-operation and fair play.
