Féile Peile na nÓg

Our under 15 footballers had wonderful success this weekend winning the County Féile Peile nan Óg Roinn B, hosted in Na Piarsaigh. We had a hard fought win in the semi-final beating Pallasgreen on a scoreline of 2-04 to 1-02. This set us up for a meeting with a very fancied Kildimo team in the final. We played against a stiff breeze in the first half but the work rate of our lads saw us enter the break leading by 3 points. Half time score; Na Piarsaigh 2-00 Kildimo 0-03. Our lads used the breeze to their advantage in the second half, proving much the stronger team, scoring a goal and four in the 20 minutes. The final whistle was blown and Na Piarsaigh were Limerick Féile Peile champions. Well done to the squad and management for the brilliant work put in since the start of the year. We can all look forward to the National Féile Peile na nÓg taking place on the last Saturday in June. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 3-04 Kildimo 1-03

Senior Hurling

Our seniors went 2 wins from 2 games as we defeated Ballybrown on Saturday evening on a scoreline of 1-23 to 0-12. We lead by 1-14 to 6 points at the break, the goal being scored by Kieran Daly. Next up is Monaleen on the 27th.

Intermediate Hurling

Our intermediate hurlers had a well deserved win over Cappamore in round 2 of the league on Sunday evening. In what were testing conditions at times, our lads ground out a 2 point victory over a dogged Cappamore team. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 0-14 Cappamore 0-12

Team: Darragh Jordan, Brian Buckley, Kevin McNamara, Sean Harrington, Jack McCarthy, Brian Hartnett, Ronan Benson, Eoin Doyle, Dean McLoughlin, Conor Stack, John O’Tiarnaigh, Louise Murphy, James Linnane, Dillon Skehan, Ben O’Regan. Sub: Joe Buckley, Jamie Quigley, Gordon Leonard, Shane Downey.

Round 2 of the Junior B League saw us go down to a very strong South Liberties team. There were plenty of positives to take from the game with a very youthful Na Piarsaigh side taking the field. Final score: Na Piarsaigh 0-10 South Liberties 1-17

Team: Darragh Jordan, Brian Buckley, Kevin McNamara, Sean Harrington, Tadhg Mullane, Brian Hartnett, Derek Grimes, Eoin Doyle, Jack McCarthy, Conor Stack, John O’Tiarnaigh, Jamie Quigley, Shane Downey, Adam Jordan, Ben O’Regan. Sub: Mark Hogan, Dillon Skehan.

Limerick Camogie

Limerick are Munster U16 Champions again after beating Cork 1-11 to 0-10 after extra time. Na Piarsaigh & Treaty Gaels strongly represented with Diarmuid Ryan, Manager, Kate Grant, Emma Doherty, Caitlin Ryan, Anna Rose Benson, Eileen Herbert, and Paul Doherty, coach. Well done to all involved. The future is certainly bright for both Na Piarsaigh and Limerick Camogie.

Ladies Gaelic Football

April 10th, 2024 – The date of Na Piarsaigh’s first LGFA game. 21 girls togged, and all played a huge part against a strong Askeaton side. Well done to team and management on the great work over the past few weeks. Thanks to all who travelled out to cheer on the girls as well. There are bigger days ahead for ladies football in Na Piarsaigh but this will certainly go down as the start of something very special.
