Our Senior footballers got off to a poor start last Friday evening when they were defeated by Ballysteen in Ballyagran in round one of the championship. Two first half Ballysteen goals had them in a commanding lead at the break and despite a quick fire double goals of our own early in the second half we couldn’t close the deficit enough and lost on a scoreline of 2-03 to 2-08. There isn’t time to dwell on this result as the second round game takes place this Saturday evening vs St Kieran’s again in Ballyagran at 7:30pm. Tickets must be purchased online beforehand via the Limerick Gaa website.
