All in Bruff GAA would like to wish our clubman, Paul Browne every success as he moves on to a new chapter in his life, having retired from the Limerick Senior Hurling Panel. Paul is a fantastic role model for all our players, from Bord na nOg to adult level, and the club are extremely proud of everything he has achieved during his intercounty career. A real gent off the field, once inside the white lines, in his prime and injury free, his explosive speed, skill and power, saw Paul as one of the top midfield players in the country. Paul leaves the county scene with two Munster Senior Hurling Championship medals, Division 1 and 2 Hurling League medals and a coveted All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship medal. Tuesday night the 28th of August 2018, will forever live in the memory, when Paul and his Bruff colleagues involved with Limerick, brought Liam MacCarthy home, to our town and clubhouse. This and other great memories of Paul, wearing the green of Limerick, is an exceptional legacy for him to leave. A fantastic clubman, we do of course, look forward to seeing Paul continue to wear the Star, in the knowledge that there are many more years left in the engine, at club level! Well done Paul, we are extremely proud of you!!
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Bruff GAA Club will take place at the clubhouse on Monday the 9th of December 2019 at 8 pm. Mass for deceased members will be held prior to the meeting, again at the clubhouse, commencing at 7.30 pm sharp.
