Only a few days to go to the big Team Limerick Clean-up!
We will all meet on Friday 3rd April between 9.00am and 9.30am at the Crecora Community Centre where we will give out some care packs; gloves, bags, rubbish pickers etc.
All rubbish will be brought to Crecora pitch from where it will be collected in the afternoon by Mr. Binman. We will have a car and trailer to collect the rubbish from the roadside where necessary.
Children are welcome, so do bring them with you and supervise them for the duration of the clean up.
We will be cleaning up the road sides so do take care of traffic.
As with any other time you are a pedestrian and walking on the roadsides, you do so at your own risk.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Team Limerick Clean-up.
With the change to summer time our training sessions for the Under 6, Under 8 and Under 10 hurlers moves from the Catholic Institute back to Crecora pitch from 6.30pm to 7.30pm Mondays.
The Easter holidays is a great opportunity for our young p[layers to get some extra time with their hurley and ball so do encourage them to get out and for a puc around and practice their skills.
Our U14 hurlers played a friendly match against Parteen on Saturday 28th March in Parteen. Once again the coaches wanted to try out guys in different positions. John Burke played very well in a new midfield role and Cathal O’Neill started at Full Forward and Dara Nash and Rory Quirke in the full back line.
Rory Hannon played well in goals and is really improving in a specialist position.
There was some really good interplay between team mates with stick and hand passing to guys in better positions. Kilpeacon got off to a great start banging in a number of early goals to give the team a solid half time lead.
Good play by Richard Murphy interlinking with other forwards meant we continued to add to the score sheet although Parteen put up a much stronger show in the second half getting 2 more goals.
Guys like Fergal, Darragh and Rian all worked hard for the team with some nice touches by Eoghan and Chris.
Overall we had a really good game on a fine pitch in Parteen.

Our U14 hurlers played a friendly match against Monaleen on Thursday 26th March in Crecora. We had guys playing in some new positions which was great for them to get experience in different positions. It also gave the coaches a chance to give some deserved game time to the Subs from the Feile game and to some of the younger members of the panel like Dara Nash and Rian O’Byrne.
Monaleen raced into an early 2 goal lead but Cathal O’Neill got us back in the match with a great goal and a point.
Jack Dalton hurled a lot of ball from the back with James Conheady prominent and hard working in mid field. We went in a point or two down at half time.
In the second half we worked some great scores through clever use of the ball and good stick passes to players in better positions. It was nip and tuck throughout the half with Sam Riordan featuring well in the scoring stakes.
Padraig Byrnes also stood up well and Rory Hannon was very solid in goals.
Chris Shanahan worked hard around the middle ably supported by others. Cian Enright scored a good point and Rory Quirke worked very hard for the team.
Overall we had a really good close game with the final result being a draw 3 – 8 to 4 – 5.
Thanks to Pat Quirke for refereeing.
