St. Annes Ladies Football and Camogie Club

St Anne’s Ladies Football Club “kicked off” on Friday January 12th 2001.  The first committee included Majella Berry (Chairperson), Jenny Cloney (Assistant Chairperson), Ger Banville (Secretary), Josephine Kavanagh (Treasurer), Eileen Berry (Assistant Treasurer) and Sharon Mernagh (PRO).  The Manager was Mairead Gaul and the selectors were Jack Berry (RIP) and Alan Berry.

In the first year 44 ladies registered and the team reached the County Final but were unsuccesful in their endeavours.  Success followed in 2003 when the Club won the Division 3 League.  Club members have represented their county at underage, minor and junior levels over a number of years. 

Ladies Camogie: 
Camogie has gone on in Rathangan for many years.  In the forties there was a good team espically in 1946 when all fractions came together at St Anne’s.  At the end of the thirties there were three players who got outings with on the County team:  Katie Pender (RIP), Lil O’ Meara (Ennis) (RIP) and Mary Margaret Whitty.  In the late fifties they were reformed again as St Tennants and played many games in Rowes field in Baldwinstown.

Camogie made a fresh start in 2005 with teams in the U-10 League and U-12 Championship, where they got to the semi-final.
