The All-Ireland Junior Camogie Championship is the most important competition for third-tier county teams in the women's field sport of camogie and for second-string teams of first-tier counties. In accordance with the practice in GAA competitions the term junior applies to the level of competition rather than the age group. [1]

Contents

The grade is contested by Armagh, Laois, Roscommon, Westmeath and the second team of Dublin.

History

The competition was established in 1969 for the New Ireland Cup. The name was changed to the Kay Mills Cup in honour of former player Kathleen Mills in 2010.

In 2006 the second teams of the first-tier camogie counties were removed from the competition. Since 2010 the competition has been officially, though not popularly, known as the Premier Junior Ireland championship. It is the third-tier camogie competition after the O'Duffy Cup for the Senior Championship and the Jack McGrath Cup for the Intermediate Championship. The series of games, organised by the Camogie Association, are played during the summer months with the finals of the three competitions taking place on the second Sunday in September in Croke Park, Dublin.
