NEW AGE FORMATS : Limerick GAA have confirmed that they will be play underage hurling and football competitions at uneven ages in 2021 in line with national policy.
GAA policy now stipulates that counties operate competitions at the Under -13, Under -15, Under-17 age grades as ‘a minimum requirement’.
The new policy came into effect from January 2021.
So all teams move to the uneven numbers (U-7, U-9, U-11, U-13, U-15 & U-17 U-19).
In Limerick the U-7, U-9 and U-11 age grades will come under the remit of Coaching & Games.
The U-13, U-15 and U-17 age grades will be planned by County Bord na nOg. Feile now reverts to U-15 level.
LEVEL 5 RESTRICTIONS : We are still in Level 5 restrictions up to 5th. March, this is the situation we find ourselves in the GAA Community , we must all ensure to comply wholeheartedly in spirit and in practice. We thank everyone for their compliance in this regard during the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and we all look forward to see all our Club players back on the playing fields in the not too distant future.
CONGRATULATIONS : Congratulations and Best Wishes are extended to Galbally Club Man, Kevin Denihan who has been ratified as Limerick Minor Football Team Manager for 2021.
