Our annual end of season Street League Finals took place on Saturday morning with a fine crowd in attendance.
The street league finals are the final act of the year for our underage so all the kids were eager to finish with a flourish.
The CBS Pipe band led the teams around Caherdavin Lawn before the action began and after the National anthem the teams dispersed to the four corners of Pairc Dromguil
Teams ranging in ages from under 5 to under 10 gave their all for over an hour before heading to the clubhouse to meet a very special guest Santa Claus.
All players receiving a medal and selection box from long time sponsor Peter Boylan and of course Santa.
A big thank you to all our underage coaches who have been outstanding all year, to Barry and John who tended the shop all year and the CBS Pipe band who have made the visit for years and is always great to see them.
A special mention for underage coach Chris Graham who heads fro Australia next week. Thanks a million Chris for your services to the Super Blues
Massive congratulations to our minor hurlers who won the coveted Limerick County Premier Minor Hurling Championship on Saturday with an excellent victory over Kilmallock in Bruff.
Trailing by 6 points to 4 , the lads put in an excellent second half and in spite of some nerve racking final few minutes they sealed the victory by 0-14 to 0-12
An fine achievement from a very hard working group of players and management who left no stone unturned to bring the Clifford Cup back to the club
Massive congratulations to our Junior hurlers and management team who captured the County Junior Hurling Championship with an excellent victory over City rivals St Patricks 1-16 to 1-12 in the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday afternoon. We trailed at the break 1-6 to 0-7 but with a much improved second half performance which included an all important goal from Kieran Daly sealed our victory .
This goes a long way to easing the pain of the previous 2 finals and a trophy which we last lifted back in 1990.
A delighted long serving captain Brian Hartnett accepted the Cup on behalf of a hard working team from sponsor Conor Fitzgerald of the Woodlands Hotel.Well done to the entire squad and management team .
Congratulations to Maurice and Michelle Foley on the birth of their son Freddy and also to Kenny and Deirdre Leonard on the birth of their daughter Kate.
We wish both families best wishes on their new arrivals
