Minor County Championship Fr. Caseys walkover received from St. Patricks
Fr. Caseys minor footballers received a walkover from St. Patricks last Friday evening. Capturing the two match points they now sit top of the table with three wins from three and are guaranteed a semi-final place. This Sunday they faced Galbally away in round 4 before a home tie in their final group game against Mungret. Well done to all involved for the positive start to date
Senior County Quarter-Final
Next Saturday evening in Newcastle West, the footballers of Fr. Caseys and Ballysteen will come face to face in the Senior County Quarter Final. With a place in the final four up for grabs this promises to be a nail biting encounter between two teams that have been hard to separate in recent years. Emerging from a difficult group with maximum points, toppling both Na Piarsaigh and Adare with powerful second half displays the fealesiders will be eager to continue their winning ways. Fr. Caseys will need to address their poor first half showings and also need to keep a watchful eye on both Danny Neville and James O’Meara who will spearhead the Ballysteen attack. It will take a big effort from the team to emerge victorious but given recent displays they have the armour to rise to the challenge. We wish all the players and management the best of luck. Throw-in time is 4pm
Club Limerick Draw
The next Club Limerick Draw will take place on Saturday September 26th with another €10,000 jackpot and an Exclusive Star Prize of Afternoon Tea for five people in the Minstrels Gallery at Adare Manor and Gourmet Dinner for five people in the Carriage House Restaurant at Adare Manor up for grabs.
