PALLASGREEN GAA CLUB NOTES.
1921 All IRELAND SENIOR HURLING TEAM HONOURED: last Sunday in the TUS Gaelic Grounds the 100 year anniversary of Limerick’s All Ireland victory was commemorated before the County Senior hurling final. Pallasgreen had a representative on the team Chris Ryan of Cross. Limerick defeated Dublin comprehensively 8-5 to 3-2 but interestingly the final was played on the 4th March 1923 and it was Limerick’s third title since 1918 and ironically it was the first time that the Liam MacCarthy was presented to the winning team. Limerick team was; Bob McConkey (Capt) M Murphy, P McInerney, D Lanigan, (Young Irelands), Dave Murnane, M Gleeson (Fedamore), James Humphries, M Ryan (Cappamore), W Hough (Newcastle West), M Mullane, T Mangan, G Howard (Croom), J Keane (Castleconnell), Chris Ryan (Pallas), T McGrath (Claughaun). Jack Ryan of Bruff son of Chris Ryan was a special guest on the day and was introduced to the crowd, a special moment for Jack when he got his hands on the Liam MacCarthy cup 100 years on when his father was part of the winning team in 1921.
Also on the day the Limerick senior hurling team that won the 1996 Munster Senior hurling championship were honoured for their 25 year anniversary and clubman Jimmy Hourigan was among those honoured. Well done to Jack and Jimmy for their magnificent achievements and wonderful ambassadors for the club.
U21 HURLING: The Sarsfield’s (Pallasgreen & Kilteely-Dromkeen) U21 Hurling team had a fine win in their start of the campaign when they defeated St Patrick’s 2-19 to 1-6 in Rhebogue last Sunday.
