The series premiere of ‘The Camogie Show’ airs this Thursday on Irish TV

FORMER All-Ireland winning Cork camogie captain Anna Geary will host a new camogie series that will air for the first time this Thursday night, March 3rd, at 8pm on Irish TV.

This six-part series, which has been produced in association with the Munster Camogie Council, intends to ‘inform viewers of what the sport means to so many people.’

‘The whole idea of this is to give the country a flavour of camogie and how much work that goes into it, from underage at the grassroots right up to county level,’ said Geary, who will explore the past, present and future of camogie in Ireland.

‘I think it’s really important that people get to see females coming to the fore, we see our male county players on television all the time.

‘This is an opportunity for us to see the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes in camogie and not just the players, but the management, those involved in administration and those that keep the show going from making the sandwiches to washing the jerseys.

‘This really is everybody’s show and I am really excited to be involved.’

Geary will be joined by a number of special guests and sports stars throughout the series, including Clare hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald and Cork legend Seán Óg Ó hAilpín.
