Tighean Innse Gall are the proud backers of the new Camanachd Leòdhais, The Outer Hebrides Ladies Shinty Team.

The ladies played their debut competitive in an all women’s match against Glengarry on the Island during the Hebridean Celtic Festival Weekend, with their new kit sponsored by Tighean Innse Gall.

Camanachd Leòdhais, also played a friendly against Skye Ladies just a week or so before the festival weekend, which was the first ever all women’s home game.

The first real taster of competitive games (as a team) was in the Scourie sixes tournament where they went to a fantastic four games drawn and just two lost.

Camanachd Leòdhais are sponsored by Tighean Innse Gall and their chairman, Donald Nicholson, a huge supporter of the game said: “Tighean Innse Gall are proud to sponsor Camanachd Leòdhais since no doubt they will go on to be the best ladies Shinty Team the Western Isles have ever seen.

“From small beginnings great things start.”
