Kilmacud Crokes has been hosting the All Ireland Camogie 7-a-side competition since 1974. It is held in September, on the Saturday of the All Ireland Camogie weekend, the day before the All-Ireland Camogie Finals in Croke Park.
Pitches in Glenalbyn and Silverpark are used with a third venue close by to cater for the 48+ teams that take part. Invitations are sent in July with the closing date being the 3rd week in August.
In recent years, the competition is divided into 3 sections; the Prionsais Ó Cronain Cup, the Sean Flynn Shield and a Plate competition. Allocation into the various sections is dependent on a club's success within their own county. The relevant information to make that decision is gathered from the County secretaries.
Teams are divided into groups of four and play three matches before the playoff stages commence. Matches begin at 10.30am and the finals are usually at around 5.30pm to 6pm.
A Puc Fada Competition also takes place in Glenalbyn at approximately 3pm and one player from each team entered is entitled to be nominated. A Wall Ball Competition has also been introduced, and is proving to be very popular. Any female player/coach/spectator can enter this competition.
