Four camogie matches postponed after gastro-enteritis outbreak


Share this article


The Camogie Association has confirmed that four of this weekend's games have been postponed due to 'player welfare'.

It's after a number of players from Limerick, Kerry and Wexford were affected by an 'outbreak gastro-enteritis' with the H-S-E investigating whether it was caused by the drinking water at the Croagh club.

The All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship matches between Galway and Limerick and Offaly versus Wexford have both been called off.

While the meeting of Limerick and Offaly and Kerry against Wicklow in the Premier Junior Championship have also been postponed.

The Camogie Association released a statement this morning.

"Due to an outbreak of gastro-enteritis at last weekend’s double-header fixtures in Croagh GAA (Saturday June 29th), involving Limerick, Kerry and Wexford teams, the Camogie Association has made the decision due to player welfare to postpone all fixtures involving these sides this weekend (Saturday July 6th) in order to give the affected players an opportunity to fully recover before the next round of the All-Ireland Championships.

"The Camogie Association have been liaising with the counties involved throughout this week to ensure that they are fully informed of the situation and provided with any necessary advice and assistance.

"The HSE’s Public Health and Environmental Health Departments and Limerick City and County Council are investigating the matter and is requesting that any player who has been ill following the matches and has not already been in contact with the HSE to make contact with their Local Department of Public Health.

"The fixtures postponed this weekend are: Galway v Limerick (Senior), Offaly v Wexford (Senior), Offaly v Limerick (Premier Junior) and Kerry v Wicklow (Premier Junior).

"Details regarding the re-arrangement of these fixtures will be confirmed in the coming days and we wish to thank all of the counties impacted by these fixture changes for their co-operation this week."
