MONALEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
ALLIANZ FOOTBALL LEAGUE: Best of luck to Monaleen duo of Donal O’Sullivan and Luke Murphy who are members of the Limerick senior football squad which begins their Allianz Football League Division 4 campaign with a fixture against Waterford in Fraher Field, Dungarvan this Saturday, 7pm. Goalkeeper Donal is joint captain of the Limerick senior football team this year. Limerick recently claimed the McGrath Cup for the first time since 2005.

Paul Kinnerk is coach with the Limerick senior hurling squad this year.
MEMBERSHIP: Monaleen GAA Club membership is now open and due for 2020. All playing members should pay without delay as there is no cover for any injury sustained in training or matches without membership being paid. The last day for payment for inclusion in any match ticket draws is, as always, March 31st. We appreciate your early attention to this.
GET IRELAND WALKING: Jack Frost forced Monday night’s Ireland Lights up/Operation Transformation walk to be postponed. The walks will continue on Monday night next, January 27 when we hope to see a large turnout.
There is no cost involved and the event is open to all members and non-members. However, no dogs are allowed and all children must be accompanied. Participants are asked to wear high visibility clothing, to bring torches and let’s light up our community.
Following on from last year’s hugely successful ‘Weigh Your Age’ initiative by Operation Transformation, Halley’s CarePlus Pharmacy in the Newtown Centre are inviting people to call in any time, free of charge, to track their progress alongside the Monaleen GAA community walks. They can also address any other topics of a healthy lifestyle in their private consultation room. Contact Halley’s on 061-338730.
