GAA - Camogie

University of Galway Camogie Club currently fields two teams - our first team competes in the Purcell Cup and our second team competes in the Uí Mhaolagáin Cup. We are always looking for new members to help us to get camogie in the University back to the top table! We are also proud to welcome Aerogen on board as our official sponsor for the 2023/24 season.


History

University of Galway Camogie Club is one of the oldest clubs on campus. We are fourteen-time winners of the famed Ashbourne Cup, with our last success coming in 1994. In recent years, camogie has seen a revival in the University and has enjoyed considerable success. We have appeared in the Purcell Cup final 4 times in the past 5 years - in 2018, we won the Purcell Cup, while we were runners-up in 2019, 2022 and 2023. We also won the Purcell Shield in 2020. The 2022/23 season was the first in some time that we fielded two teams. Our first team reached the final of the Purcell Cup, while our second team won the Division 4 League Title and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Uí Mhaolagáin Cup semi-finals.
