About our club

Portumna Camogie Club is situated at the GAA grounds in the heart of Portumna town, near its historic castle (built before 1618), priory (built in 1254) and Dowager House (circa 1800).

The town itself is situated in the most eastern side of Co. Galway – its famous swing bridge over the River Shannon marks the border with Co. Tipperary. We may be right on the edge of the county but it is central to our existence.

Portumna Camogie Club reformed in 1994, and has continued to grow in numbers and in success. It is led by a team of community members and these volunteers work together to nurture our players and create a safe, vibrant space for them to grow and enjoy the game of camogie.

We welcome new members – young and old; those who play and those who would just like to socialise and enjoy the game. If you have any queries, suggestions or feedback please get in touch. We are a community organisation and are happy to chat.

The club is affiliated to Galway Camogie, and has the same vision, mission and values:
