AHANE GAA CLUB NOTES
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Bernie Quirke.
Bernie gave so many years of her life to the club and was our club PRO for many years. Bernie ran the club shop and if you wanted any club gear all you had to do was ask Bernie! Bernie was always involved in club fundraisers and anything that needed to be done Bernie would do it! God knows she made thousands upon thousands of sandwiches for the lads growing up to make sure they were ready for road!
Bernie was always on the sideline of all our matches. She was one of the clubs biggest supporters.
Bernie was not only a serious supporter of our club she was also seriously creative and after retiring she started Quirky Pots Jam and Chutneys which were a massive hit! For Christmas she made Christmas wreaths which were absolutely stunning and again a massive hit with all in the community.
Bernies husband Louie is a life long stalwart of the club, Bernie’s son Conor played with the club and was part of our Senior Management team this year, Bernie’s daughter Fiona is also a huge presence in the club as she helped out with the bar and runs our club texts along with helping out with club fundraisers and Fiona has been on our Club Committee.
Bernie’s big personality, friendly manner and beautiful smile will be greatly missed by all in the club and community. We are sending all our condolences to Louie, Fiona, Conor, Bernie’s daughter-in-law Leanne and her two granddaughters Aisling and Caitlin.
Funeral Arrangements can be on RIP.ie
The club will be doing a guard of honour on Tuesday in line with the wishes expressed by the family. Details to be confirmed.
May she Rest In Peace.
After all their hard work this season our U8 hurlers were rewarded on Monday evening with a visit from Limerick star Aaron Gillane!
There was great excitement at the big ball wall as Aaron met each of our three pods of U8s. Aaron reminded the kids of how important it is to practice their skills at home.
Thanks to Aaron for visiting and the absolute best of luck to the Limerick senior hurling team who play Clare on Sunday next.

Limerick Senior Hurling
Congratulations to Dan, Tom and the Limerick Hurlers on a great win over Clare on Sunday afternoon. The tie doubled up as the Allianz Div. 1 Final and the first round of the Munster Championship. A great start to the Munster Championship and fantastic for Limerick to win back to back league titles! We wish the lads and their management the very best of luck as they take on Tipperary next Sunday in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
