Barry Nash has received his 2nd All Star in a Row. Not alone that but he was nominated for Hurler of the Year. What an incredible achievement for a hurler that is capable of playing in any position on the field. Barry has probably been one of the most consistent players in the whole country throughout the League and Championship, delivering out the sliothar from the back line in magnificent fashion, notching up a goal and a few points throughout. Congratulations to Barry and all the famous Nash family. There maybe should have been an All Star in that clan prior to now but we are sure the whole family are extremely proud this week in Barry. We, as a club, certainly are. Congratulations to Diarmuid Byrnes on his Hurler of the year award and all the 7 Limerick Lads for their All Stars, along with John Kiely, his background team and all the panel.
Our club now has 15 All Stars for South Liberties and Limerick, with Anthony Nash having 2 more for Cork and we lie 8th in the overall club totals in the whole of Ireland for hurling. Not a bad statistic for a small rural Club.
Well done to our amalgamation of South Liberties and Crecora/Manister lads who won their first round of the championship last Saturday beating Croagh Kilfinny / Rathkeale on a scoreline of 0-12 to 1-06
Family Fun Day Committee / Volunteers Night out
Our above had a great night together in The Four Elms last Friday night which was organised by Annemarie O Neill and Ger Nash. A wonderful night was had by all with Annemarie having everything sorted to perfection as always. It was a truly memorable get together as we also celebrated Barry Nashs All Star win and the young Larry Hickeys birthday.
Well done to Kitty Mulcahy who claimed 2nd prize in the Club Limerick Draw last Saturday, winning 3000 Euro. This is the second month running we have had a second placing prize winner and Kitty also won 500 euro a few months back. There are still two months prize draws left so if anyone wants to be in with a chance log onto our website or Clublimerick.ie
Well done also the Roxboro NS, who won the East Limerick 13 aside football primary school’s competition last week, where South Liberties had a huge contingent participating.
The Club wish to express their condolences to both the Butler and O Riordan Families and extended families on their recent bereavements.
Seamus Butler lost his niece Marie Mortell.
Billy and Maura O Riordan and their sons Liam and Cathal and sister Róisin, lost their son/brother Padraig suddenly, who resided in London, and a former player of South Liberties.
