Brídíní Óga camogie team has received a £300 community grant from Power NI – Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier.

 

The Glenravel-based team was nominated to receive the funding by club player and Power NI employee Oonagh Ward, as part of the company’s ‘Helping Hands’ staff sponsorship scheme. The initiative gives employees the opportunity to nominate local groups and organisations to receive funding to purchase new training equipment.

 


The camogie squad, which is part of Con Magees GAC, recently won the All-Ireland Junior final, beating Leinster-based side Knockananna in January to become the first Antrim team to win an All-Ireland Junior Club crown.

 

Brídíní Óga coach Mark Coulter said:

 

“Women’s sport is often overlooked in relation to funding, we are delighted to receive this generous donation from Power NI, which will be put to good use to purchase new training equipment for the upcoming season. Hopefully the new kit will help us win more silverware for the club.”

 


Oonagh Ward, a Power NI employee and club player added:  

 

“It’s so important for companies in Northern Ireland to support local community clubs and organisations. Helping Hands is a brilliant initiative, and it really does give local clubs that extra bit of help during tough economic times.”
