Limerick’s Win Against Wicklow
Congratulations to the Limerick footballers who had a fantastic win against Wicklow in Aughrim last Saturday. Donal O’Sullivan (goalkeeper) captained Limerick. Limerick started in the lead. In the 19th minute, our Gerald Griffin’s player Tommy Griffin scored a point; just before Wicklow scored a goal making it a level game. Two points were scored just before the break, one by Robbie Burke and the other by Hugh Bourke. At half time, the score was 1-06 to 0-11, with Limerick in the lead. 62 minutes in, Danny Neville scored a goal for Limerick, which left Limerick in the lead by 6 points. Hugh Bourke scored another goal for Limerick, just a few minutes after. Our Gerald Griffin’s player Gerard Stack came on towards the end and scored a point within minutes of coming on. The final score of the game was 2-19 to 1-12. It was great to see our Gerald Griffin’s players on the field, Tommy Griffin as left wing foward and Gerard Stack, who came on as corner forward for Danny Neville. Well done to you both.
