Ahane GAA Club Notes
RTE visit Ahane Club for “Up for the Match” All-Ireland Programme
We had the great honour of being picked by RTE as the Limerick club covered for their “Up for the Match” programme in advance of the All-Ireland Final. The programme to be aired on the 18th is one of the highlights of each All-Ireland Final weekend for all GAA supporters throughout the country.
The RTE crew arrived to a very warm welcome from the hundreds of kids and parents that showed up decked out head to toe in the green of Limerick, showing their support for the team and the Ahane lads involved, Tom and Dan Morrissey.
The programme will show coverage recorded in Mackey Park, which must be said was looking splendid on the day – well done to all the good work carried out by the club committee! The morning included interviews, poems, games and cheering a plenty!
Thanks to all who showed up on the day and helped show the club in such a good light.
Luimneach agus Athain Abú!
Cluiche Ceannais Iomána na hÉireann
Beidh Gaillimh agus Luimneach ag imirt i bPáirc an Crócaigh i gceann coicíse taréis an bua a bhí ag Gaillimh i Stáid Semple, Dé Domhnaigh. Bhuaigh Gaillimh ar an gClár leis an scór 1-17 in aghaidh 2-13. ‘Sé mo thuairim go raibh díomá ar na daoine a bhí ag súil le cluiche ceannais stairiúil idir na comharsana ach is iomaí seans a chaill an Clár. Anois tá gach rud ullamh don lá mór agus beidh an muintir Luimnigh ar bís i rith na coicíse atá romhainn. Tá gach seans ann go mbeidh Liam ag teacht cois na Sionainne.
Ahane Junior Hurlers
The lads were knocked out of this year’s championship by Doon last Thursday evening in Cappamore. Ahane needed to win to ensure qualification to the semi-finals and went at the game from the start. The game was highly competitive with some good spells of hurling and scores from both sides. One of the Doon men saw red mid-way through the first half which should have aided Ahane’s cause, however despite the game being quite close throughout, Doon eventually ran out comfortable winners by 2-21 to 0-17 points.
Well done to all the players and management for the work and progress this year. Hopefully they will push on further next year and contest honours come years end.

Ahane Minor Hurlers
Ahane welcomed Bruff to Ahane on Wednesday last having a win and a loss behind them in their opening rounds of games. A strong Ahane side led at the break having got off to a flying start, knocking over some sublime scores throughout the half. In the second half, the Bruff showed the were up for the battle and brought themselves back into the game with some nice scores themselves. Ahane however kicked on and showed some composure to power ahead late on, rattling over a number of fine scores to eventually win out comfortably by 1-23 to 1-11. Next up for the lads are table-toppers Mungret on Friday 10th in Mungret, Please come out and support the lads!
