BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
Limerick are All Ireland champions for 2020, what a fabulous way for us all to end a difficult year. Huge congratulations to John Kiely and the fabulous Limerick team led by Declan Hannon. What a fabulous team and what a fabulous acceptance speech by Declan. It was a fantastic day, a very strange day for all of us who are normally at the matches. Who knew the day was so long before a match. We are so proud of you all and well done.
Well done to Chairman John Cregan and all the county board who have helped in facilitating the Championship which has brightened a very strange winter, special mention to Hugh Murphy PRO County Board. Well done to all involved, including Griffins Coaches who again transported the team when restrictions lifted.
Well done to the Limerick Minor hurlers and footballers winning their respective championship matches on Saturday V Cork and Waterford. The hurlers are now in the Munster final and the footballers play the Munster semi final next Wednesday. Well done to Sean O’Neill who played with the hurlers. Best of luck in the next match
Hard luck to the Limerick U20’s who lost to Cork on Saturday after extra time, well done to Jimmy Quilty who was corner back and Daithi Heffernan who was on the panel, best of luck in the future.
