MONALEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
SUPPORTING FRONT LINE STAFF: Monaleen and Ballysteen GAA clubs were due to open their respective Limerick Senior Football Championship campaigns against each other last weekend.
However, due to the current Covid-19 crisis we find ourselves in, the clubs decided to come together with the aim of raising funds to purchase equipment and supplies that are needed at this moment for our Front Line Staff at University Hospital, Limerick. Both clubs are grateful to all who supported this initiative and showed solidarity with our medical professionals who are working tirelessly throughout this current National Public Health Emergency in battling Covid-19. The initial target was to raise €1000 between the two GAA Clubs. However, this target figure has been surpassed several times over. Thanks again to everyone for all their generous support.
