Cork midfielder Ashling Thompson was one player involved who vocalised her frustration and boycotting of the trip calling the decision ''just crazy''.
Speaking to the Irish Examiner, Thompson said; “How could you expect seven players to turn their back on their teammates at probably the most important time of the year leading up to championship. We wouldn't have All-Stars only for our teammates,”
“We are looking to be the one association. That's the goal. We are constantly looking for equality. How can you look for equality when it doesn't come from the top down."
“The GAA wouldn't make decisions like this and put players in such an awkward situation.”
Not to mention - provisional fixtures:
Munster Camogie Championship 21st May.
In addition, @MunsterCamogie Final 28th of May - double header with Tipp v Waterford @MunsterGAA Hurling Championship in Semple Stadium.
Also potentially ruling out Waterford Camogie all stars 2022 https://t.co/xYGGIsrWNg

The Irish Examiner reports that when contacted the Camogie Association said “split season pressure” influenced their decision to schedule the trip so close to championship.
“The split season has placed pressure on all availability, combined with a league, provincial championship and club window.”
