LAST WEEK’S RESULTS:
South Under 21 B Championship Final: Tory Gaels 2-11 Knockainey 0-8.
Congratulations to our under 21 hurlers, Tory Gaels, who won the South B Championship with a 2-11 to 0-8 win over Knockainey on St. Patrick’s Day in Kilmallock. Our lads were slow to start and Knockainey developed a 0-3 to 0-0 lead after 15 minutes. However, a well-taken goal and point by Killian Rea brought us right back into the game, and we drew level at half time 1-3 to 0-6. The second half was a different story with our boys totally dominating throughout. Michael Bateman broke through the centre for a great goal and fine points also came from the hurleys of Liam Quirke, Mark Reidy, Ryan O’Shea, Shane O’Connell and Edwin Wixted, who was returning from injury. Our backs withstood several late assaults on our goal by Knockainey to run out 9 point winners. The cup was presented to our captain Mark Reidy and Tim Moloney was awarded Man of the Match. Tory Gaels now await the winners of the East final replay between Liberties and Pallasgreen in the county semi final.
Team: Mark O’Kelly (Croom); Kevin Laffan (Croom), Tim Moloney (Crecora), Cian Leahy (Crecora); Gary O’Connell (Crecora), Mark Reidy (Croom), Evan Moloney (Crecora); Darragh O’Farrell (Croom), Cormac Flanagan (Crecora); Barry Fitzgibbon (Crecora), Michael Bateman (Crecora), Ryan O’Shea (Croom); Shane O’Connell (Crecora), Killian Rea (Crecora), Liam Quirke (Croom). Subs: Edwin Wixted (Crecora), Eoghan Cregan (Croom), Shay Dunworth (Croom).
UNDER 14 FÉILE
Our under 14 hurlers played the first round of the Féile against our neighbours Patrickswell on Monday 21nd March in Crecora at 5.30pm. Unfortunately despite a very impressive display where heart and soul were put on the line by every single player , we lost out on the day and now look forward to the Div 1 Championship in both hurling and football which will be starting in a couple of weeks. We were missing 4 regular starters on Tuesday night due to injury so hopefully when these guys come back we will have more strength in depth to compete at Div 1 level in both hurling and football.But all coaches were extremely proud of all players who showed up on Monday evening so despite defeat , well done to all.
TEAM LIMERICK CLEAN UP:
Thanks to all who came out on Friday morning to take part in Team Limerick Clean-up.
Thankfully there was less rubbish along our roadsides this year due to the massive clean-up last year but also due to the great practice whereby a number of regular walkers pick rubbish from their route throughout the year.
If you notice that your stretch of road was not cleaned take advantage of the longer days and get out with you neighbours to pick up the rubbish.
LIMERICK UNDER 21 FOOTBALL
Well done to our clubman Cormac Flanagan who made an appearance for Limerick against Kerry in the Munster Under 21 Football Semi Final in Tralee last Wednesday. A spirited Limerick team were unlucky to be beaten by just 3 points, 1-14 to 2-8.
LIMERICK & NA PIARSAIGH
Unfortunately Limerick were soundly beaten by Clare in Cusack Park last Sunday in the final round of the Allianz Hurling League Divison 1B. They remain in 1B for another season at least. Attention now turns to the clash with Dublin in the League Quarter Final in two weeks time. Time, date and venue for same is still to be confirmed. There was better news for Na Piarsaigh last Thursday when they were crowned All-Ireland club champions, the first Limerick club to do so, beating Antrim’s Cushendall by 2-25 to 2-14.
