1st prize €750, 2nd prize €350, 3rd prize hamper value €200, 4th prize

2017 was an excellent year for Kerry Camogie with success at U14, U15 &
Minor with All Ireland Titles. Our senior team won the Munster Junior
Championship and reached the semi-final of the Liberty Insurance League &
Championship and will be aiming to go one better in 2018. There is a lot of
expense associated with this number of teams representing Kerry proudly in
Camogie and we hope that funds raised in this draw will help offset some of
the costs in 2018. We appreciate your continued support of Kerry Camogie
both on and off the field.
