The Kehoe Sisters

Four of the eight Kehoe sisters reflect on their lifelong involvement with camogie. They explain how being part of a family of 17 children fostered their love of camogie. They discuss their playing careers at club, county, and provincial level in Wexford and Dublin, and they outline the history of the main club they were involved with, Adamstown Cloughbawn in Wexford. The sisters also recall winning their various All-Ireland medals in camogie, with particular emphasis on Greta's captaining of the winning 1975 Wexford camogie team the day after her wedding. They describe their subsequent participation in administration and coaching roles and their passion for encouraging their children and grandchildren to get involved in the GAA and camogie. In addition, the sisters discuss the amicable relationship between camogie and the GAA, and they consider the reasons for the low profile of camogie compared with the GAA. Finally, they reflect on their hopes for the future of camogie in Wexford.
