An historic occasion was witnessed by the Parish, in Kilmallock last Sunday, when our Senior Men overcame Patrickswell to reach the County Senior Semi Final bridging a 37 year gap, the last time being in 1985. We trailed by 3 points at the half time mark while Anthony Nash made a great save with Captain Eoghan Godfrey making sure, with a quick flick, that the ball didnt slide into the net. Brian Ryan was the only goal scorer of the game which finished 1-13 to 0-14. We now play Na Piarsaigh next Saturday in Kilmallock at 3.30 in the semi-final, a day on which a South Liberties Man, David Grimes, will marry Claire, a Na Piarsaigh woman. Good Luck and best wishes to everyone.
Our U15 boys withstood the rain in Mick Neville Park last Sunday morning when they contested their Divisional semi-final. They trailed by one point at half time but with a slight cross wind possibly favouring them, they went out all guns blazing and ended with a formidable win over Kildimo Pallaskenry on a scoreline of 4-06 to 0-10. Congratulations to players and mentors and best of luck in the County Final. Date, time and venue will be on our social media as soon as we know.
Well done to our Scór team who came a very credible second place in the Limerick County Trath na gCeist Final last week. The team of John Cooney, Michael O Brien, Noel Hartigan and Eddie Noonan were just 2 questions short of the winners. Well done Men.
Congratulations to Mikey Keane who celebrated his 40th birthday last week and is still donning the green and gold of South Liberties at Senior Level. His team mates had cake awaiting him at their training session in Dooley Park last Friday night. Wishing you many more years of celebrations Mikey.
Happy Birthday also to our club man and Limerick Bord Na N-og treasurer Denis Carroll.
