|Little is known about the early days of Douglas Camogie. It was formed in the early 1930’s then reformed in the 1970s by ex-players such as Pauline Downey and Mary Dineen. Senior success was slowing coming but when it did no one could have predicted how far we would have come in such a short time. 2005 was the catalyst year with Douglas winning its first Junior B county championship.
This was followed up in 2007 with county victory at Senior B level and paved the way for Douglas Senior Club status which it holds today.
In the club’s debut season at senior level (2008) they won the Senior A County championship. Amanda O’Regan was nominated by the club to captain the Cork Senior Camogie team and she had the distinct honor of lifting the O’Duffy Cup in Croke Park before bring the cup back to Douglas in what was a most memorable night for our camogie community.
|Douglas Camogie secured a second county championship title in 2011 and reached a Munster Final in the same year.
In the summer of 2019 Douglas Junior 7-a-side team won a Munster championship. Although a successful club the greatest success is seeing players transition from underage to senior grade. The club’s ability to field teams at both Junior and Senior level is a testament to club spirt and its hard working members.
Douglas Camogie is the most successful club in the county at Feile na Gael. Having contested 5 finals, and to cap a tremendous record won All-Irelands 3 years in a row. Underage success in the mid 2000’s provided a strong platform for future seniors accolades. The club has enjoyed success at all County A Grade levels over the decade and continues that rich history of success today.
Although on the pitch achievements are one way to look at our history. The club embodies a spirit of community, friendship, and development. The Annual Aoife Downey Tournament is an important day for our club where we remember an important member of our camogie family, it is a day that brings old and current players together and reminds us all of the friends we have made through the years.
|Douglas Camogie plays at senior grade and A grade at most underage levels. This is an incredible achievement for our club, and we thank all our players, coaches and supports for their hard-work and commitment over the years. We have had some notable success over the years
