Wicklow Camogie Chairperson, Donna Olahan, is hopeful that all games at adult and juvenile levels will be back up and running by the weekend after a full stop was brought to all activities following the revelation that the county had no Child Welfare Officer in place.

With nobody in that role the Chairperson said that the county just couldn't take the risk of anything happening to a child and that was the reason why all games were put on hold.

"We are hoping to have all games up and running by the end of the week," said Donna. "The position wasn't filled and we couldn't afford to let any games go ahead because there are underage girls playing at Senior level as well.

"We are currently speaking to two people in connection with the role of Child Welfare Officer and fingers crossed we will have the position filled by the end of the week," she added.

This is an unfortunate development for the camogie body in County Wicklow who have suffered several set backs in the last few years. There has been no county team for the last two years and for the second year running there will be no Glenealy Senior team in competition which is a terrible loss to the county as a whole.

The 2014 league had just played one round of fixtures with some entertaining clashes between the top sides. However, all competitions are now on hold until the position in question is filled.
