CROOM GAA CLUB NOTES
Intermediate Hurling: The time has come! This Saturday evening we cross camáns with our neighbours Granagh/Ballingarry in Round 1 of the Intermediate hurling championship at 7pm in Croagh. This game has been eagerly anticipated and we have been training hard in preparation for this battle. There isn’t much between the teams and it promises to be a close encounter. Due to restricted numbers at all GAA matches, anyone wishing Togo needs a ticket. Please text or ring Ger 087 2833095 or Richie 085 8861022-put your name and number of tickets required in text. Please note that children, OAPs, and season ticket holders require a ticket also. These tickets are non transferable due to contact tracing. We hope those that do make it will deck themselves out in blue and white and bring the noise.
U16 Football: Last week we were delighted to welcome Limerick U16 coach and former Limerick Senior Footballer Andrew Lane to do a training session. This was a very beneficial session and the lads really enjoyed it. Andrew will be doing a second session this Thursday 23rd at 6.30pm. All club coaches are welcome to attend to observe the session.
InU8/U10 Hurling: Last Saturday morning we were delighted to welcome Limerick Senior hurlers Kyle Hayes and Darragh O’Donovan to training. The kids were very excited and very much enjoyed the experience. Kyle helped with the U10s and Darragh with the U8s. They were very generous with their time and signed the kids jerseys and hurleys afterwards. We would like to thank them both for taking time out to visit the kids in Croom and wish them the very best of luck with Limerick this year and hope they bring the Liam McCarthy cup back to Limerick in time for Christmas! Thank you to Robert Twomey and Trevor Costello for organising the lads visit. Club Limerick Draw:
