KILDIMO/PASSASKENRY GAA CLUB NOTES
LIMERICK SENIOR FOOTBALLERS: A huge congratulations to the Limerick senior footballers who defeated Cork in the McGrath Cup Final in the Gaelic Grounds on Saturday on a 0-20 to 0-16 scoreline. It is the first McGrath Cup won by Limerick since 2005 and they racked up a big score while doing so. Our own Tony McCarthy played the full 70 minutes at wing-back, while John Chawke and Peter Nash were also members of the panel. Best of luck to the Limerick senior footballers for the season ahead!
LIMERICK SENIOR HURLERS: In the second part of Saturday’s double header, the Limerick senior hurlers also defeated Cork on a 1-32 to 0-20 scoreline in the Munster Hurling League Final. Neither Darren O’Connell nor Kyle Hayes were part of the matchday panel as they had Fitzgibbon Cup duty at the weekend but were part of previous matchday panels. Well done to all involved and best of luck to the Limerick senior hurlers, especially Kyle, Darren and Ruairí Maher, for the season ahead!
FITZGIBBON CUP: Darren O’Connell and Kyle Hayes were both in Fitzgibbon Cup duty at the weekend but unfortunately, neither player’s side came out on top. Darren won four frees and had a goal disallowed but his LIT side were defeated by Waterford IT in Moylish on Sunday. Kyle was part of the UL side which travelled away to DCU, where they were defeated by a margin of just two points. Kyle scored two points from play and was one of UL’s top performers but DCU just edged the game. Best of luck to both Kyle and Darren for the rest of the competition!
CLUB LOTTO: The first club lotto draw of the year was held in the Corner House. The numbers drawn were 9, 10, 11, 12. There was no winner of the overall draw.
