AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
Limerick 1-19 Cork 1-26 (Senior)
Hard luck to the Limerick seniors as they came up short against Cork in their opening Munster championship group game. Well done to the Ahane duo of Dan and Tom Morrissey who, continuing on from their hugely successful year in 2018, both started at wing-back and wing-forward respectively. Next up for the is Waterford away at 2pm on the 2nd of June.
Luimneach 1 – 19 Corcaigh 1 – 26
I bPáirc na nGael, De Domhnaigh, thosaigh craobh iomána i gceart nuair a chuaigh Luimneach agus Corcaigh in adharca ar a chéile. Seachtain ó shin fuair Tiobraid Árann an lámh in uachtar ar Chorcaigh agus bhí ionadh ar lucht leanúna iomána le chomh héasca a bhí an bua acu. Ach in aghaidh Luimní bhí scéal eile ann . Bhí Corcaigh thar barr, le scil agus crógacht. Cé nár thug daoine
lasmuigh mórán seans dóibh d’éirigh go geal leo an bua a fháil ar seampaíní na hÉireann. Freisin, d’oscail said an craobh go leathan agus táimid go léir ag súil leis na cluichí le teacht.
Limerick 0-19 Cork 1-16 (Minor)
Congrats to Ahane’s Adam Murrihy and Cian Casey who both played in the Treaty Men’s exciting draw with a fancied Cork side. The Rebels, who comfortably overcame Tipperary in their opening game last week started the more assured, racing into a 4 point lead before Limerick settled and forced themselves back into the game, ahead by a single score at half-time by 0-9 to 1-5.
Adam, lining out a midfield was extremely busy throughout and showed some fine touches and reading of the game. Cian came in during the second half at wing forward and won a vital free late on which was scored by marksman Cathal O’Neill. While ahead by the minimum well into added time, Cork scored a long range free to level the sides and share the points. Next up for Limerick is Waterford in Walsh Park at 12pm on 2nd June.
