City Junior A Hurling Championship
St Patricks 2-18 Na Piarsaigh 1-12
A second championship win for the Junior hurlers despite not performing at their best and will be in no doubt some improvements can be made, a good complaint when still winning. Leading 1-07 to 1-04 at half time some fine scoring from captain Brendan Mullins and with Calvin Moran a constant threat on the restart, St Patricks ran out winners. Old Christians will be the opposition in Round three this coming Saturday in Childers Road. Team David Geary, Andrew Hannigan, Mark Phelan, Jack Greenwood, Thomas O Grady, Wayne Cronin, Gearoid Phelan, Keelan Stephenson, Kevin Maher, John Mullane, Brendan Mullins (1-12 (8f), Jason Mullins, Niall Phelan, Patrick Mullins (0-02) and Calvin Moran (1-04). Subs Anthony Kett and Michael Geary.

Great credit due to these lads and their families to be given the opportunity to represent their county following months of hard work in the Limerick Football development programme. Well done to all. We also had some other players who were involved in these squads in recent months. Best of luck to all Limerick panels.
Southside Gaels suffered their first championship defeat when travelling to Bruff. Despite leading for much of the game, two late goals from the home team led to a loss 3-12 to 2-11. Qualification for the County semi final is still within reach but this leaves no room for error. Pat Halpin (Village Inn) brings success to the Ladies football team. A winning combination and a great start to the championship last Tuesday night for Groody Gaels. Many thanks to Pat Halpin who sponsored the ladies Football team a new set of Jerseys. Pat and the Halpin family have been supporters of the club for many years and also kindly sponsor jerseys for the St Patricks senior football team.
