FR CASEYS GAA CLUB NOTES
Last Fan Standing
Many thanks to everyone who supported our Last Fan Standing competition which commenced on January 29th. In total there were 363 entrants signed up ahead of the deadline to compete for the €300 Jackpot. Our adult club players which are running this fundraiser are very grateful for the generosity of our club supporters and wish all involved the very best of luck.
After week 1 we have only 6 entrants still standing and 357 eliminated after a bizarre series of results in the opening round of Football League which included Dublin suffering a surprise defeat to Armagh and the other three Division 1 games including Kerry’s trip to Kildare all ending in drawn games. And so we march on to week 2 with four additional fixtures in the limelight and all 6 remaining entrants battling for the Last Fan Standing Title & €300 Jackpot. Stay tuned to our club social media pages and our club website to check on progress
Well Done Limerick
Well done to the Limerick Senior Footballers who kicked off their Division 3 National League campaign with a very impressive 4-09 to 1-11 victory at home to Longford last Saturday in the Gaelic Grounds. Next Saturday they make the long trip to take on fellow table toppers Antrim with a 2.30pm throw-in Corrigan Park. On Sunday the Limerick Senior Hurlers will begin their league campaign with an away trip to Wexford. The throw-in time in Wexford Park is 1.45pm with the game also televised on TG4.
