24 counties across five grades will commence this year’s Liberty Insurance Camogie Championship later this month.

The Liberty Insurance Camogie Championship, which includes Senior, Intermediate, Premier Junior, Junior A and Junior B, was launched at Croke Park on Tuesday by President of the Camogie Association Aileen Lawlor and CEO of Liberty Insurance Pat O’Brien.

Liberty Insurance recently announced its sponsorship of the GAA Hurling and Camogie All-Ireland Senior Championships for the next five years.

Wexford are the current All Ireland Senior champions securing their third title in a row against Cork last September. Derry were promoted to the senior grade after winning the Intermediate title in 2012 while Meath secured the Premier Junior crown.

The first round of the Liberty Insurance Camogie championship will commence on 22 June with last year’s All Ireland finalists Cork facing old rivals Tipperary in one of the weekend’s key games.
