Crecora/Manister GAA Club Notes:

Team of the Week – Cathal O’Neill:
We would like to congratulate our own Cathal O’Neill on being included in the Team of the Week last week at Centre Back. Cathal was named at Centre Forward but took up the role at Centre Back and did a superb job. He contributed 4 points from play in a big Limerick win against Dublin in Croke Park.

County Players:
Best of luck to Niall Conheady who has been chosen for the Limerick Celtic Challenge team for the coming season. Three of our under 15 club Players, Sam Collins, Cian Hickey & Pierce Griffin will also be lining out for Limerick this year. Sam and Cian have been selected on the Limerick U15 Hurling squad for 2024 and Pierce has been selected for the Limerick U15 Football squad for 2024.
This is great recognition of all the training and the time these 4 young men have spent improving their skills.
Well done Niall, Sam, Cian & Pierce, Crecora Manister GAA Club wish you the best of luck for the season ahead.
