“The Bernie Scott Camogie Tournament is a celebration of Teenagers & their Families enjoying sport together in a social environment”
The Inaugural Bernie Scott Camogie Tournament took place last year at Castlegar GAA in Galway. This very special tournament was created by Ballinteer St Johns u15 Camogie Mentor, John Wall together with his family, in memory of his beloved sister, Bernie Scott.
Castlegar GAA, on the edge of Galway City, is John’s home club and that of his and Bernie’s family back home in Galway. John envisaged that this would become an annual event, hosted either at Ballinteer St Johns or Castlegar GAA Clubs.
John also hopes that this special tournament provides teenage players and their families an opportunity to celebrate playing and enjoying sport together in a social environment.
Ballinteer St Johns are delighted to be hosting the 2022 Bernie Scott Tournament.
On Saturday 19th November 2022, the u15 Camogie Teams of Ballinteer St Johns, Castlegar, Naomh Olaf & O’Donovan Rossa will compete for the Bernie Scott Challenge Cup and the Bernie Scott Challenge Trophy.
Everyone is really looking forward to the tournament and we look forward to welcoming Castlegar GAA, John’s friends & family from Galway, O’Donovan Rossa from Co Antrim and our friends & neighbours Naomh Olaf.
It is absolutely wonderful that John and his family have created the Bernie Scott Tournament, connecting two very special GAA communities, Castlegar & Ballinteer St Johns, in memory of Bernie. Best of luck to all the girls participating in this very special tournament. Thank you to Castlegar GAA for hosting the inaugural tournament last year and we look forward to hosting it in 2022 in beautiful Marlay Park.
