“Everyone should feel welcome.”

The Camogie Association has launched PRIDE Round, an initiative which involves affording the third round of the Glen Dimplex All-Ireland Championship the dedicated name of “PRIDE Round”.

Launched at Croke Park today, Pride Round will give counties the opportunity to host activities and promote inclusivity and diversity in the sport.

“I am delighted to launch the Pride Round on behalf of the Camogie Association,” said President of the Camogie Association, Hilda Breslin.

“Camogie is a community-based association, where everyone should feel welcome. One of our core values is inclusiveness and it is vital that we show solidarity and respect with all our members.

“It is important that we follow up those words with actions and we are calling on all units and members to engage positively in promoting the message of inclusivity and diversity through our game.”

Louise Keane, the Camogie Associations Player Welfare and Inclusion Coordinator, added: “We are really excited for Pride Round.”

It’s an opportunity for us to create visibility and allowing people to see themselves in others and see a community where they are not just accepted but they are celebrated and embraced.

“We are asking all counties to get involved and do something, big or small, to celebrate Pride Round and the LGBTQ+ community and we can’t wait to see what they do.”
