The Valentines Ball at The Rose Inn organised by The Charlton Celts Camogie Club had a definite 70s feel. Lots of bikers, hippy chicks, and disco divas turned up, paisley prints with hardrocker leather grooved on the dance floor and all washed down with a variety of lurve cocktails. Lovin’ was in the air.
Ozzy Osbourne – alikes, grooved to hippy anthems, and seemed happily out of it. Fortunately a Sharon Osbourn-a-alike kept him in check. The even was heavy supported from one of our main financial supporter from the online casino bonus sector, as well and with the active help from the crew of the betting site toponlinebookies.com, thank you guys for all the support over the years.

The large posse of pretend popstars that turned up dominated the dance floor. The Rose Inn was certainly the Lurve Zone at Camogie Valentine Ball.

BRIEF HISTORY OF CAMOGIE
the late 1880’s an epidemic wave of nationalism gripped Ireland. The
foundation of the Gaelic League around this time heralded the dawning of a
new departure as Irish men women alike influenced by a spirit of
resurgence sought to establish a unique culture of their own, of which
they could be proud of and of which couldn’t be copied by any other
It was a situation of the Irish
yearning to be even more Irish. The people wanted to be able to boast an
identity, which was prestigious and valuable, and then, motivated by an
abundance of vigour a renaissance of sorts commenced.

from coast to coast. Encouraged by this renewed idealism the GAA came into
being giving formal expression to centuries of tradition in the realm of
Irish games and pastimes.

themselves of the shackles of an age which frowned upon the active
participation of women in sport to add a new dimension to an Irish Ireland
