Ahane GAA Club Notes
Seachtain ó shin rith CLG Atháin féile iomána, naonúr-an-taobh, i bPáirc Mhic Aodha. Ghlac sé fhoireann páirt ann agus bhí an bua ag Cill an Daingin (TiobraiÁrann). Bhí an caighdean iomána go hard i rith an chomórtais agus bhain na foirne go léir taitneamh as. Buíochas mór leis na hóglaigh go léir ó CLG Atháin a
rinne obair thar barr chun an ocáid a chur ar siúl. Buíochas mór freisin leis na réiteoirí Philip Kelly, Eamon Phelan agus Philip Dee. ‘Sé aidhm a bhí againn ná an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn trí spóirt agus ocáid a chur ar an bhféilire d’imreoiri na gclubanna.
Deireadh seachtaine corraitheach arís i gcraobh na Mumhan. Corcaigh agus Luimneach ar chomhscór agus mar an gcéanna idir Port Lairge agus Tiobraid
Árann. Ceapaim go bhfuil meangadh gáire ar na foirne i gCúige Laighean leis an méid fuinnimh atá caite ag na Mumhnaigh i ngach cluiche go dtí seo!

Limerick U14 Camogie
Ahane GAA Club would like to congratulate the Ahane girls involved with the U14 Limerick Camogie team in the Munster Inter County Camogie Blitz in Mallow on Saturday. Special mention for our own club members Éle Madigan, Rachael Donnellan, Ciara Keaveney, Ella Ryan, Aoife Whelan & Molly Hussey proudly representing Ahane & Limerick.
Ahane Camogie is very well represented on this country squad and a well-deserved comhgairdeas to mentors Anne, Denis, Eugene & Kevin on getting the players to this level. Best wishes to all the Limerick players and Management Team today especially our own Anne Mackey Madigan at the blitz. Anne has been mentoring this bunch of players since U6 – well done Anne, all your hard work is paying off.
Also lining out for Limerick in the primary game at the Cork v Limerick match in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, and proudly flying the Ahane flag, is Ciara Slattery Wright.
Limerick v Cork
Two great games were played on Saturday evening last In Corks newly refurbished Pairc Ui Chaoimh stadium. The main fair was the clash between Munster’s remaining two unbeaten sides in the senior game, which ended in a thrilling high scoring draw, 0-28 to 1-25. Indeed Ahane’s own Tom and Dan Morrissey were outstanding, contributing to Limericks cause throughout in terms of general play and on the scoreboard. The lads return to action again next Sunday in the Gaelic Grounds against a resurgent Waterford side.
In the opener, Limerick minors followed up their win at home against Tipperary a fortnight ago with a comfortable 6 point win over the Rebel county. In a game which they controlled throughout, leading by 5 points at half time, they continued their good form in the second half pushing to eventually finish 1-20 to 0-17. With Ahane’s Padraig Harnett among those manning the defence sternly, they never allowed the Cork side close the margin. Andrew Shanahan was another member of the Ahane contingent togged as sub on the day. The minors next game is also against Waterford before the senior game next Sunday.
Best of luck to both Limerick sides and the Ahane lads involved.
Ahane Junior Hurlers
We faced Ballybricken last Friday evening in the first round of the Championship in Cappamore. Early in the game the heavens opened as forecasted. The torrential rain that ensued made hurling conditions difficult to say the least. The Bally boys were indeed ahead at the break when the referee Morgan O’Sullivan had no choice but to abandon the game given the ever deteriorating conditions. The game will be re-fixed for a future date.
