Senior Hurling


Our senior hurlers are back in the County League Final after an 8-point win over Murroe Boher last Friday evening. The game, originally fixed for Claughaun but changed to Fedamore earlier in the day, was played out in unusually chilly conditions for the month of June. Playing with a strong breeze in the first half, we went in 3-points to the good at the break, leading on score line of 11 points to 8. Our lead might have seemed small considering the strong headwind we were to play into in the second half, but our lads added to the scoreboard early with Ronan Lynch and Kevin Daly adding points along with a well finished goal by JJ Carey. Murroe Boher stayed in the hunt with a couple of scores but Kevin Daly was to add to our goal tally again on the 40 minute mark. James Daly made a great effort to keep out a Murroe Boher penalty but the ball ricocheted off his outstretched hurley and into the net. Will Henn added our third goal on 51 minutes, with both teams exchanging scores for the remainder of the game. Special mention for both Ronan Benson and Mark Hogan who made their competitive senior debuts this weekend. Keep an eye on these lads.

We will meet Kilmallock in the county league final, them having overcome Dromin Athlaca in the other semi-final. The fixture will be confirmed early this week. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 3-21 Murroe Boher 1-19

Team: James Daly, Emmet McEvoy, Gearoid Synnott, Jim Beary, Tommy Grimes(0-02), Ronan Lynch(0-02, 2f), Bradley Moran(0-01), Dean McLoughlin, Wayne Kearns(0-01), Kevin Daly(1-01), Will Henn(1-08, 2f 2'65), JJ Carey(1-01), Dylan Lynch, Kieran Daly(0-02), Pa O'Neill(0-01).

Business Breakfast


We were absolutely delighted to have the GAA President Jarlath Burns in attendance for our Business Breakfast on Friday morning last. MC’d by our club secretary Lavinia Duggan, the morning was ran off in a smooth and professional manner with the best of Na Piarsaigh being shown off to the many visitors from all over Limerick and further afield, along with some Clare representatives sneaking in as well! We would like to extend a huge thank you to all the companies that supported this inaugural event and we look forward to many similar functions to follow off the back of its success. The breakfast coincided with the mini-launch of our 3-year strategy, of which the main launch is to take place on Monday night in the clubhouse.

Pictured after our business breakfast were Chairperson Risteard O'Flaherty, Secretary Lavinia Duggan, President Frank Kavanagh, GAA President Jarlath Burns, Head of 3-Year Strategy Donie O'Gorman, Treasurer Brian Kelly.

Limerick


Huge congratulations to Will, Mike, Conor and Peter, along with our senior selector Alan Cunningham on winning 6 in-a-row Munster Championships with Limerick. What an in incredible time this has been to be Limerick supporter and for our lads to be front and centre has been something to behold. They are a credit to each and everyone of us in Na Piarsaigh. Still plenty of hurling to be played yet, so we’ll see ye all in Croke Park in a few weeks. Luimneach Abú!!!
