SOUTH LIBERTIES CLUB NOTES
Well done to our U15 boys who won the County ¼ final last week. Final score South Liberties / Crecora Manister 3-14 to Newcastle West 1-03.
Our boys played super football to come through their first 2 stages beating Adare and Ahane. They bowed out in the ¼ final losing by one goal to a strong Killacolla Gaels team who went on to Win the Limerick Feile B section. Our amalgamation of South Liberties / Crecora Manister though are now awaiting their County Championship Semi Final.

Our Junior footballers lost out in the second round of the championship to a very strong Feenagh/ Kilmeedy side on Sunday evening last in Banogue.

After a whirlwind of jubilation in Limerick last week following our All Ireland Hurling win, our County was plummeted into deep sadness on hearing of the sudden deaths of 2 young Men, who were hugely involved in the GAA scene.
Pádraic Kearney, an ex-player and coach and present selector with Adare Senior Hurlers and also a member of the popular wedding band “Free Beer” lost his life in Dublin suddenly after the game last Sunday. Pádraic was laid to rest last Thursday.
On Tuesday we heard the news of PJ Garvey also losing his life suddenly in Limerick. PJ, who was a dual player in his time for Limerick, also played prominent roles in Hospital-Herbertstown, Ballybricken Bohermore and Mungret St. Pauls. PJ, along with his son Conor, togged out for Ballybricken Bohermore B team in 2014 against South Liberties where our own Pat Donnelly also played.
Tributes have been paid from far and wide to both men and their families and South Liberties also extend our deepest sympathies. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha uaisle.
