PwC All-Stars Awards.
Last Thursday morning December 9th, phones were buzzing all around Limerick shortly after 7am, when the 2021 Hurling All-Stars were announced and none more so than in the surrounding Parishes of South Liberties GAA Club. We never once doubted that Barry Nash was going to be a deserved recipient. The opening narrative on RTE by Seamus O’Rourke was soul touching to listen to and watch, especially when Declan Nash appeared on screen powering up the pitch and straight to his nephew Barry scoring his magnificent point in the 2021 All Ireland Final from his position at corner back. Barry’s interview later in the show was powerful showing our grounds at Dooley Park firstly and then his honest and grounded nature. And for our other All-Star heroes Joe Mc Kenna, Pat Hartigan and Eamon Grimes to be shown and mentioned was such a proud moment for the Club. So yet, we can again speak in terms of Barry Nash being one of our elite members that we are so proud of within our Historic Club.
Míle buíochas Barry agus Comhghairdeas o chroí leat.
