Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Stakes:
Our nominated dog “Terezas Mendoza” came first in the quarter final last Easter Saturday in the Limerick Greyhound Track and will now compete in the semi finals this coming Saturday night. Wishing the owning syndicate “Queen of the South” and their greyhound the very best of luck.
Many thanks for all our volunteers who helped clean up our grounds and clubhouse last Good Friday morning for TLC.
Recent Easter Camp:
We had a really fantastic turnout for our Easter Camp last week and huge credit to Cronan Garry jnr, Noel Hartigan and Cathal O Neill for organising it. We appreciate all the help also from all our volunteers for the few days and also to Limerick Hurler Cathal O Neill for attending on the last day and giving sound advice to all our underage budding athletes. The responce back from everyone is that the boys and girls are already looking forward to the next camp.
Our junior hurlers league campaign continued this week with a visit from neighbours Caherline. We started well and by halftime had built up a sizeable lead with the score line 0-12 to 0-2. However Caherline started the second half well and scored the first 6 points to reduce our lead to four points. Jack Fitzpatricks goal increased our lead and further goals from Barry Walsh and Mike Keane kept Caherline at bay. Final score of 3-16 to 1-15 saw us continue our winning run. Our next fixture is in a couple of weeks when we play Ballybrown.

Allianz National Hurling League Champions 2023:
Congratulations to our County Hurlers on their win over Kilkenny last Sunday at Páirc Uí Chaoimh. Our own Barry Nash was, as always, outstanding on the day. Barry scored 1-01 from his corner back position, proving what a versatile and dynamic player he is all over the pitch. We are all now looking forward to the start of the championship when Limerick take on Waterford in their first game on April 23rd in Semple Stadium Thurles.
