Na Piarsaigh GAA Club Notes:
Underage Hurling and Football Returns!:
The underage hurling academy returns next Saturday the 10th at 10am with the Monday Night Football academy returning on the 12th at 6pm. Be sure to register in advance via ClubZap. Our club shop will be open with club gear including helmets, hurleys and football gloves available to purchase. Tea and coffee will also be available in the clubhouse. Beginners and new members very much welcome.
Thank you to all our coaches who volunteer and give their time. A gentle reminder that all coaches are required to ensure their safe guarding / Garda Vetting is up to date in advance of coaching sessions commencing. If in doubt check it out.
The Limerick senior hurlers had a comfortable win over Antrim on Sunday in Thurles, winning 1-36 to 1-9. While the result never looked in doubt it was a proud day for Na Piarsaigh with Emmet McEvoy making his competitive Limerick debut. Emmet saw out the final few moments coming off the bench after the 60 minute mark. Conor Boylan also featured, playing the first 35 minutes.
Ardscoil Rís were denied victory in the final moments of the Harty Cup final on Saturday in Ennis. A Nenagh CBS goal in the dying minutes put an end to Ardscoil’s hopes of winning a first Harty Cup since 2018. John O’Keefe lined out at right corner back while James Finn played just in front on the wing. The lads had a stellar campaign and were unfortunate to just come up short on the day. The Croke Cup is still up for grabs and we’ll all be supporting as Ardscoil try to make a repeat of their 2022 success. Special mention must also go to Eoin Brosnan, Sean Harrington and Ronan Benson who were also on the Ardscoil Ris panel.
Under 17 Camogie:
Big congratulations to Aoibheann Gardiner, Ava Smith and Lucy Murphy on being selected for the Limerick U17 Camogie Development squad for the 2024 season. This is a great testament to the hard work both the girls and their coaches have put in over the years. We wish them all the best for the season ahead.
We would like to thank all those that helped out with bag packing in the Jetland on Saturday last. This has been a great little fundraiser for us over the years with very little overheads. Thank you again to all those that contributed their time and to Dunnes for giving us the slots.
Reminder that membership for 2024 is open and can be renewed using ClubZap.
