Camán & Peil Abú going from strength to strength


Following on from the great success of the Camán and Peil Abú during the Urban project in the summer, a number of weekly leagues have sprung up and are proving hugely popular with many people having started and continuing to play the game in Waterford City.


Since the end of summer there are weekly Camán and Peil Abú sessions taking place in Naomh Pól GAA Club with parents and players from the club combining to make teams. The first Camán and Peil Abú only started in Naomh Pól in July with a fun day but such is the popularity the Camán and Peil Abú will keep going for a while to come.


Last month a new Camán and Peil Abú league was started in Ballygunner GAA Club in the new Indoor Arena. This league is for players from any club and none who wish to play and get fit while doing so. The league in Ballygunner is very much a social and recreational game with the enjoyment of participants the main priority of those taking part. The Camán and Peil Abú runs every Thursday from 7pm and anyone can come along with full equipment provided. All you need is a pair of runners.
