Our Senior Footballers played their final group game of the County Senior Football Championship on Wednesday night in Clarina when they took on fellow dual senior club Adare.
We began the game in the knowledge that nothing short of victory would suffice and the lads delivered on that.
Goals in either half from Dylan Cronin gave us a well deserved victory to put us on 6 points in the group.
However it was Fr Caseys of Abbeyfeale who also finished on 6 points, who held a slight scoring advantage over us and thus deprived us of the 3rd spot we so craved.
Final score on the night Na Piarsaigh 2-12 Adare 1-7.
A mighty effort from the lads in their first year back in the senior ranks and no doubt will have learned some valuable lessons throughout the season to carry forward.
A huge thank you to the management and players for a very good season which still has a League final to run
Please be patient while the gallery loads.
The GAA community is a closely knit community which experiences a great sense of loss with the passing of one of its members .Na Piarsaigh felt that sense of loss recently with the death of one of its stalwart members Dan Hickey. Suaimhneas síorai dá anam uasal. A lover of Irish culture,Irish language and Gaelic games, Dan was an active member right up to his death.
There are many legacies he left us..his tireless commitment to An Scór, The Mackey Stand and his organising an Oíche Ghaelach in the club many times .Ba ionspioráid dúinn go léir é. Dan was a visionary..he got things done and his loyalty to Na Piarsaigh and Limerick GAA never wavered. It is said of visionaries and I quote “A visionary builds what dreamers can only dream of”. Rinne Dan obair íontach i rith a shaoil agus caithfimid go léir an obair sin a dhéanamh anois agus sa todhchaí gan Dan.
Our senior footballers enjoyed a comprehensive victory over St Kierans in Round 4 of the County Senior Football Championship on Friday evening to keep alive their hopes of a quarter final spot.
We began brightly and had early points from Dylan Cronin,Eoin Hogan, Kieran Daly and Podge Kennedy to put us in control along with a very good goal from Aaron Costelloe to take a 5 point lead into the break 1-5 to 0-3.
We continued the second half where we left off with further points from Gordon Brown,Evan Egan, Kieran Daly and Kieran Barr but conceded a rather soft goal to allow our opponents back into the game.
However we showed good character and mid way through the second half we had our second and decisive goal from Gordon Brown to put the seal on a very good performance. Final Score Na Piarsaigh 2-13 St Kierans 1-5
Best performers on the night were Gordon Brown, Kieran Daly, Dylan Cronin, Podge Kennedy and Evan Egan.
