Congrats to Edel for all her hard work and dedication. Well deserved. Carlow Camogie Volunteer of The Year Edel Jordan Myshall Camogie Club Edel started coaching in Myshall camogie club seven years ago. Edel played senior camogie for a number of years with her native Naomh Bríd club and the experience and enthusasism she brought to her adopted club was truly appreciated. Her daughter Caoimhe was the inspiration Edel needed to get involved in coaching, and this led to the highlight of her years this year when the bunch of girls she brought through from U 6 up to U 14 won the county double camogie and football titles. This team then went on the win the U 14 All Ireland Division 3 Féile competition. Edel also was involved in coaching Myshall’s U 16 camogie and football teams who also won the county double championship. A tremendous achievement for the coaches, players and the club. Previous to this Edel had been involved with her Primary school teams. Edel has been involved in managing and coaching the girl’s Rackard League Camogie and Football teams in Our Lady of Lourdes National School. Edel has done fantastic work with the teams over the last number of years in the school, with both the Camogie girls and Ladies Footballers having many a successful day under her guidance. Last year, Edel’s experience helped both the Camogie and football girls to reach the Rackard League final. It is fantastic to see that so many young girls are keen to represent their club and school while playing camogie. This is down to Edel’s wonderful attitude and her ability to make every girl feel as though they are a vital part of the team. Edel has been an outstanding mentor for the girls in club and county and her work ethic, enthusiasm and excellent knowledge of the games that she has passed on to so many young girls will without doubt remain with them throughout their sporting careers. For the club Edel does all the administration work for the team she works with, from registration forms and collecting money to contacting parents re all the games and training sessions. She arranges matches with the opposing teams and contacted the county board re organising referees. She is so organised and attends to every detail when organising teams, training sessions fundraising etc. Edel is very interested in the development of younger players and pays particular detail to the weaker player. Edel became involved this year with the County Carlow U14 development squad. This squad had 66 girls involved and they took part in 11 blitzes including travelling to Cork twice and Limerick once. They won Leinster Blitz Div 3 and 5. This squad had 23 weekly training sessions which Edel was involved with. Edel is a very tactical coach with huge knowledge. Edel is a very worthy nominee for the Volunteer of the Year Award and we wish her well. Edel will be honoured at a function in Croke Park in the New Year and will receive her county award at dinner dance in late 2018.
Myshall Camogie Club AGM will take place on January 4th @ 7.30. Registered members will receive their nomination form by forwarding your email address to Mairead Doyle (Secretary) before Friday Dec 1st.
