FR CASEYS GAA CLUB NOTES
Intermediate West League
Fr. Caseys Vs Glin – Saturday March 26th in Abbeyfeale at 3.00pm
Senior West League
Fr. Caseys 2-09 Rathkeale 2-07
Fr. Caseys Senior Footballers started their 2022 west league campaign on a winning note on St. Patricks Day when they captured maximum points over Rathkeale in the Bog Garden on a score-line of 2-09 to 2-07. A bright first half display saw the Abbeyfeale men take a 1-04 to 0-05 half time lead, Cormac Roche striking our first goal of the day. Rathkeale remained in contention throughout the second half period, even with a second goal added by Rory O’Brien there was only a kick of the ball between the teams at the final whistle but thankfully Fr. Caseys emerged victorious with a two point winning margin. With a bye in round two the Seniors next competitive outing will be against Adare in Abbeyfeale on April 16th. In the meantime our Intermediates will start their league campaign with a home game against Glin on March 26th.
Well Done Limerick
Last Saturday in Portlaoise the Limerick Senior Footballers continued their tremendous league form with a superb 0-15 to 0-14 victory over a fancied Laois side. This win makes it 4 wins from 6 games and leaves Limerick in second place in the table with their faith in their own hands as we enter the last round of games this weekend. Once more Adrian Enright gave a brilliant display and after his spectacular goal the previous week against Wicklow this time he was raising white flags with four first half points to set Limerick up for another great victory. The final league game will see Limerick take on Fermanagh this Sunday March 27th in the Gaelic Grounds with a 2pm throw in. Best of luck to all involved and fingers crossed promotion to Division 2 will be achieved this weekend.
