Limerick Club Draw
The Limerick GAA Club Draw will resume for 2021 and the first draw will take place on Saturday 27th of March 2021. The 2021 Club Limerick Draw aims to support the future success of both club and county teams. We would like to thank everyone from Gerald Griffins who took part in the Draw for 2020 and hope that you will extend your support into 2021. This draw is a great source of income for the club during this time as we have no Club Lotto taking place during the current climate.
Every Step Counts
Great news this week! We have collectively reached our 4,000-kilometre goal for the Every Step Counts Initiative during the week. This is a huge achievement since we were late registering for this event, a huge thank you to everyone who took part in the challenge over the past few weeks. We are aware for many the app didn’t function very well but this was out of our control so apologies for inconvenience caused. The deadline is March 3rd so it is still not too late to join! We want to clock up as many kilometres as we can before the deadline ends (every step counts!) Everyone who participates are entered into a draw for various vouchers and prizes. Again, it is still not too late to join. To say ‘Thank You’ for embracing our 1st Healthy Club Initiative Gerald Griffins GAA is sponsoring a 50-euro voucher which will be drawn live during the week. Do cash in your ‘My Life Points’ where you will be included in a draw for different items. Keep in touch with Gerald Griffins Facebook, Instagram, website and Twitter pages for upcoming events and challenges.

Gerald Griffins GAA are saddened to learn of the passing of former club member, coach and former club secretary Eddie McKenna in the America. Eddie was regarded by many as a true gentleman and gave great service to his club over the years. He had played for the club when growing up in South Cappa. After school he went to college and studied for the Priesthood but always made his way home to play with the club which was not easy in those times. He was very interested in the youth and having them playing.. All the young players loved him for whenever or wherever they played and trained he always stopped off at some shop and bought water. minerals and ice cream in abundance for everyone there.
He had a car and would collect and take home players also. He was greatly missed when he returned to the States. We would like to extend our sympathy to his family and friends at this time. Ar deis de go raibh a anam dilis
