Kildimo/Pallaskenry GAA Club Notes
CITY JUNIOR B HURLING LEAGUE FINAL: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 3-15 Mungret 0-8.
Two in a row! Our Junior B hurlers, sponsored by the Seven Sisters, collected the first piece of silverware for the season with a victory in the City League final for the second season in a
row! After we had had a hard-fought victory over Mungret earlier in the season, we were looking to repeat that feat and claim the title, and we did so in impressive fashion despite
missing a number of players due to the Leaving Cert, injury and other reasons. We had a bright start, with Evan McCarthy to the forefront, hitting an early point from play before scoring a goal after some good work from Evan Considine and Stephen McKeogh. Gerard McKeogh followed this up with a pointed free before Chris McMahon made it 1-3 to 0-0 after being set up by Evan Considine. Mungret then had their first score through a free, before Gerard McKeogh scored two ‘65s, one after a great run through the middle from Adrian Garvey. Mungret hit two points from play either side of a great score from Evan Considine, after he turned the ball over in the Mungret defence and popped over the bar.One of the Mungret midfielders was making inroads with his pace but Danny O’Sullivan
stood tall to make an excellent save, our joint captain was very alert all night long. Mungret would have a short period of dominance but our backs would show their worth in this time.
Tommy O’Connor battled very well in his corner all night long, and Kieran O’Brien prevented even a sniff of goal for most of the time. Mossy Sheehan did some great covering
and delivered nice ball into the forwards while the energy of Adrian Garvey in the middle of the field was a joy to behold. But Mungret were able to tack on a couple of scores, a ’65
bounced over the crossbar and they hit a score from play to reduce the gap to just four, despite our early dominance. But we kicked on again before the break, driven on by the likes
of Mikey Dillon, Adrian Garvey and Evan Considine. Gerard McKeogh scored another free, Chris McMahon popped over his second point after intercepting a puckout and Evan
Considine opened the shoulders to drive over a score from distance. A late Mungret point left the half-time score at Kildimo/Pallaskenry 1-9 attention now turns to the County semi-final. Congratulations and many thanks to Gary
Dillon and Paudie Daly for overseeing affairs; it was a very comprehensive victory.

ALL-COUNTY FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIVISION 4: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 1-16 Cappagh 2-17. Despite showing great spirit and a good comeback, our footballers fell just short against Cappagh in the County League. Championship is just little over a month away, so it was good for the lads to get another game under their belt and continue preparations.
LIMERICK SENIOR HURLERS: Congratulations to Kyle Hayes, Barry O’Connell and the Limerick senior hurlers, who dug deep to earn a draw against Cork despite facing adversity. A particularly proud moment for the club as we saw Kyle hit two points, including firing over a last-minute equaliser. No better man to take on the shot under that kind of pressure. Well done to the lads who are out again in the Gaelic Grounds next Sunday against Waterford.
LIMERICK MINOR HURLERS: Congratulations also to James Mason and the Limerick minor hurlers who made it two wins from two to top the group after they defeated Cork at the
weekend. They also face into a fixture against Waterford next Sunday in the Gaelic Grounds.
Please get in in support of James and his team!
LIMERICK SENIOR FOOTBALLERS: Peter Nash, Tony McCarthy and the Limerick senior footballers welcome last year’s All-Ireland finalists, Mayo, to the Gaelic Grounds next Saturday night. It’s a huge game, and we’d like to wish them the very best of luck. Please get along in support of the lads, and help them get over the line!
EXAMS: Everyone involved with the club would like to wish all club members doing the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert over the next couple of weeks the very best of luck!
FAMILY FUN DAY: Keep the date in your diary; our 2018 Family Fun Day is due to take place on Sunday, September 2 in Pallaskenry GAA Grounds. More details to follow!
GUESS THE SCORE FUNDRAISER: Earlier this year our team coaches under took an
(AED) Defibrillator training and First Aid training course, thanks to Donal O Brien. We are delighted to have received by an anonymous club member the gift of a defibrillator which replaces an old defibrillator we had and was beyond repair.
The club will now set out to raise funds to purchase a second defibrillator, so we will have one permanently in both playing facilities. We are doing a Predict the Score competition for the Limerick vs Clare match on June 17 and offering €150 in prize money. €2 per prediction or 3 predictions for €5. Please support this very worthy cause for our club. Predictions are on
sale from club members as well as local public houses/post offices/shops throughout the
community. The closing date for predictions is Thursday June 14.
U-14 HURLERS: Kildimo/Pallaskenry 10-15 Patrickswell 0-3. An absolutely superb victory for our U-14 hurlers last Wednesday in a sunny Kildimo, as they defeated Patrickswell and
delivered a magnificent performance. It promises to be a good season ahead for this talented team.
U-12s: Our U-12 footballers were in action against Mungret, and were unfortunate to come up against a very strong Mungret side in flying form. They also faced off against
Ballybricken/Bohermore in the hurling league, so plenty of action for this young team.
U-6s: Our super U-6s took on the might of Ballinacurra last Tuesday on a fine sunny evening and managed to defeat them in both hurling and football. They were great games and the
boys and girls showed a great understanding of Go Games rules and, more importantly, had great fun. A return visit may be on the cards.
U-8s & U-10s: Our U-8s and U-10s were also in action, along with the U-6s, in Pallaskenry, as we welcomed Ballinacurra and Mungret on a glorious evening. In total, there were over
125 children involved so thanks to the visiting clubs and all who helped to organise, as well as our own fantastic teams. It was a great evening, and we’d be delighted to for some more
parents to get involved to allow these events to happen more regularly. As you can imagine all help is appreciated with that number of kids playing!
