Offaly woman steps down from role with Leinster Camogie Council

Offaly woman steps down from role with Leinster Camogie Council

The Leinster Camogie Council has paid tribute to Carmel Carroll of Birr after she stepped down as Treasurer

Carmel was stepped down at Saturday's Leinster Convention in the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow due to business pressures.  

Outgoing Chairperson of the Leinster Camogie Council, Pat Martin, made a presentation to Carmel in recognition of her services to the game.

Carmel was also honoured by Offaly Camogie after she stood down as treasurer there at their recent AGM. Offaly secretary Mairead Haugh paid tribute to Carmel, who she described as the embodiment of Offaly Camogie.

"To replace Carmel will be impossible because Carmel is irreplaceable, and her experience and advice will be sorely missed."

"Carmel is so considerate and kind and thinks of problems before they even arise. My only hope is that Carmel only takes a sabbatical and returns to us very soon. None of my words will do her justice but I think everyone sitting here knows how crucial Carmel is to Offaly Camogie."
