Retired Cork star Anna Geary will host the camogie series, which has been produced in association with Munster Camogie Council, and intends to “inform viewers of what the sport means to so many people.”

The highly regarded former Cork camogie player Anna Geary, explores the past, present and future of camogie in Ireland in this new six-part series broadcasting on IRISH TV Sky 191.

With four All Stars Awards and four All-Irelands to her name, Anna, who recently retired from Inter-County Camogie for Cork is looking forward to highlighting the sport on Irish TV.

“The whole idea of this is to give the country a flavour of camogie and how much work that goes into it, from under age at the grassroots right up to county level. I think it’s really important that people get to see females coming to the fore, we see our male county players on television all the time. This is an opportunity for us to see the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes in camogie and not just the players, but the management, those involved in administration and those that keep the show going from making the sandwiches to washing the jerseys. This really is everybody’s show and I am really excited to be involved,” revealed Anna.

The series will help promote Camogie at all levels and will inform viewers of what the sport means to so many people around the Country and abroad. Anna will be joined by a number of special guests and sports stars throughout the series, including famous names such as Davy Fitzgerald and Seán Óg Ó hAilpín.

The Camogie Show airs this Thursday 3rd March at 8pm on IRISH TV.

Irish TV can be viewed on Sky channel 191, all Free to Air boxes, Freesat 400, Eircom’s eVision 191 and online at www.irishtv.ie
