BALLYSTEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
Inter County Action
Well done to the Limerick Senior Hurlers and William O’Meara on their victory in the Munster Hurling Championship Final. Next up is an All Ireland Semi Final at the end of July. It’s bound to be a unique occasion as Limerick will headline the Saturday evening of action. Throw in at 6pm and tickets go on sale this coming Wednesday.
Congratulations to the Limerick U20 Football who recorded an impressive victory against Tipperary in Thurles last week. Cillian Ferris captained the side but was forced off injured early into the game with Jason Daly also involved. This coming Thursday, a trip to Austin Stack Park awaits and a place in the Munster Final is up for grabs. Best of luck to all involved.
