History

Crookedwood Camogie Club was formed in 1980 by Fergus Mc Cormack, Anthony Gaffney, Mary Brennan and Edel Greene. The first meeting was held on the 22nd January 1980. The club affilliated in February 1980 with U14, U16 and Junior teams  to Westmeath Camogie Board.

In the first year, Crookedwood tasted success, when they contested and won the Junior final on September the 6th in Joristown, Raharney when they defeated Delvin.

The Club Officers in 1980 were as follows:

Chairperson:                     Anthony Gaffney

Vice Chairperson:              Mary Brennan

Secetary:                         Anne Orme, who retired in April and was replaced by Rosaleen Brennan.

Treasurers:                      Patricia Aylwards, Helen Donoghue, Evelyn Keane.

Delegate to County Board: Anthony Gaffney, Barbara Orme, Fergus Mc Cormack

Commitee:                               Catherine Gaynor, Catherine Aylward, Anne Creagh, Marie Mc Carthy, Rose Murray, Eilish Orme.

From 1980 our club has gone from strength to strength. Today we field at U10, U12, U14, U16, U18 and Senior. (We were promoted to the Senior ranks this year, after defeating Drumraney in the Junior final)

We have won many titles in the County, U10, U14 and Junior Blitz', Championship's at U10, U12, U14, U16 and Junior. We have also won the Intermediate Championship now known as the Senior Championship.

We won Feile na nGael in Westmeath on many occasion's and have represented Westmeath in Feile in Wexford, Clare, Galway and Down and we also won the Mini Feile in Carlow. We also represented the County in Clare in 1988 when Carol Daly took part in the Skill's competition.

Our U14 have won a Leinster B title with Westmeath when they defeated offaly. Our Junior girls have also done the club proud too, by playing for their county and winning many Leinster B Titles. They also reached the All Ireland National League final in 1983, where they were defeated by Dublin.

 

 


2006 was a very successful year for the club when the Junior's beat Drumraney in the Junior final in Castletown in August.

Going into the game as complete under-dogs and trailing at half time, the Wood girls pulled together in the second half to gain a much deserved return to the senior ranks. All credit most go to the girls for the hard work they put in all year and to their mentor's and team trainer Frank Brennan.
