Con & Annie Kirby Memorial:
On Thursday we attended the launch of the Con & Annie Kirby memorial stakes at Limerick Greyhound stadium. Limerick Greyhound stadium also launched their sustainability initiative where they invited all Limerick GAA Clubs to plant a tree at the entrance to the track and we were delighted to have our club secretary Ger Riordan and current dual player Sam on hand to plant the tree. The draw for the memorial stakes will be held next week where Crecora GAA Club will be assigned a dog to follow for the duration of the competition. We will have complimentary Passes for each week up to the semi-finals which can be obtained by contacting our club secretary.
