Castlepollard Community College is a rapidly growing institution and along with it our sporting endeavours have developed. This has been clearly illustrated in the popularity and growing success of our camogie team which has flourished under the guidance of Ms Brady and Jimmy Greville.

Although camogie has only been up and running for three years, it is one of the most prominent sports in Castlepollard CC. This year the school fields teams that cater for each year group. This includes the Minor D Championship (U14), Junior D Championship (U16) and the Senior D Championship (U18).

With GAA being a huge part of the community, especially camogie, it has provided an excellent foundation of students hailing from local clubs, such as, Lough Lene Gaels and Castlepollard. The girls train once a week every Monday after school and each year there is a first year Blitz which allows the girls to compete with a number of different schools in Westmeath. Camogie encompasses wellbeing with each girl developing attributes, such as, teamwork, resilience and communication. The popularity of this sport in the school will keep it growing from strength to strength.

  • Emma Walsh (Castlepollard)
  • Kaitlin Walsh (Castlepollard)
  • Caitlin Devine (Castlepollard)
