CONGRATULATIONS: Well done to Monaleen clubman Paul Kinnerk, who is a key member of the Limerick senior hurling coaching team which defeated Waterford to win the All-Ireland senior hurling title for the second time in three years. All at Monaleen GAA Club are very proud of Paul’s achievement. Well done to the players and remainder of the management team.
BEST WISHES: Best wishes to the Monaleen representatives involved in Munster GAA championship action this Saturday. Three Monaleen players Ronan Lyons, Joseph Fitzgerald and Lochlann McHale are members of the Limerick minor hurling squad which faces Tipperary in the Munster final this Sunday at 1pm. Monalen’s Neil Clifford is Liaison Officer with the Limerick minor hurling side again this year. Limerick overcame Cork in the Munster semi-final, 2-19 to 0-13, last Saturday.
Good luck also to Monaleen’s Darragh Murray who is a member of the Limerick minor football squad who take on Clare in the Munster semi-final on this Wednesday evening at the LIT Gaelic Grounds, 7pm. Limerick reached the semi-final by scoring an impressive quarter-final win over Waterford on Saturday.
Meanwhile, commiserations to Monaleen’s Leo Morrisson who is a strength and conditioning coach for the Limerick U20 hurling squad who lost out to Cork in their Munster semi-final after extra-time at the LIT Gaelic Grounds on Saturday last.
ROAD HURLING: It is with great regret that we have to announce that the very popular Monaleen Road Hurling event, which traditionally takes place on St Stephen’s Day is cancelled for 2020. We feel that this is the safest course of action due to Covid 19. We will meet again during 2021 to see if an alternative date could be arranged and if not hopefully we will all be together next year.
