2019 Campa Chormaic launched
“When you sign up for Campa Chormaic you sign up for the whole package. Our games, our language and our culture. It brings it all together in the one place. It’s a very special gathering”. The words of Jarlath Burns, Chair of Ulster GAA’s Cultural Committee, at the launch of Campa Chormaic 2019. This year’s programme of camps were announced in the Hill of the O’Neills Centre in Dungannon on Friday evening.
Jarlath Burns was there alongside members of the McAnallen family, Campa Chormaic committee members and Slaughneil Camogie Player Gráinne Ní Chatháin.
Campa Chormaic was established in 2004 as a living memory to Cormac McAnallen in the Brantry near Eglish in County Tyrone. Since then the camp has grown and flourished in Antrim, Derry and Down.
Campa Chormaic is recognised as one of Ireland’s leading and premier Irish Language and GAA summer camps and is organised around the four pillars of Sport, Language, Culture and Fun. Camps are managed by skilled and professional Teachers and Leaders. Every child is presented with the Official Campa Chormaic jersey which is exclusive to the Camp.
