Government Support for intercounty ladies football and camogie players, distributed through Sport Ireland, is an indicator of the recognition that exists at national level for the contribution of these athletes to their sport and their commitment to play the game at highest level possible.
Equally, this funding acknowledges that support is required to ensure that these players have the opportunity to reach their potential as athletes.
