Helmets law passes and O'Flynn eyes 60,000 final crowd

HELMETS for all -- that's camogie's new rule. It will come into force at the beginning of next year.

The motion was passed unanimously at the National Congress in Kildare.

Helmets, with a full face guard, must now be worn in all matches and training sessions. A hundred and fifty delegates were at Congress. President Joan O'Flynn gave an inspiring address.

By 2015 Joan wants to see 60,000 people at the All-Ireland Camogie final.

Another ambition is to see an increase in the number of clubs in the association.

"We have 540 clubs at the moment; I'd like to see 750 in five years time," declared Joan. "I think these are realistic aims. We can achieve them.

"But we need everybody working together to make it possible."
