Limerick Minor Football
Hard luck to the Limerick Minor Football team who were defeated in the opening round of the Munster Minor Championship last week. Our two panellists Eddie Murphy O’Connor and Tomas Sheahan failed to make the match day squad. Next up for the Minor Footballers is a tough trip to Fraher Field to take on Waterford this Wednesday. Throw in is at 7pm. Best of luck to all involved.
Ballysteen GAA extends sympathy to the family and friends of Eddie Walsh. The Club was saddened to hear of the death of Eddie who played half on the great teams of the 1960’s. Eddie won a County Junior Football title in 1961 with Ballysteen and County Senior Titles in 1964 with Ballysteen and 1966 with Askeaton. Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam.
