Welcome to The Green and White Website
Another season has come around and, as ever, Limerick fans set out with hopes that this will be our year. And why not? The Under 21 triumph of last Autumn is fresh in the mind. The seasoned players are a year older and wiser. There are new faces in the backroom team also. The stream of promising players is showing no sign of drying up.
As new faces fill the dressing room, some familiar names will be missing from the Limerick teamsheet as Donal O Grady and Stephen Walsh take their leave of the intercounty set up. Stephen has been passing on his expertise as a mentor with South Limerick in the Mackey Cup in recent years and is relishing his new role as Principal of Kilbehenny NS. ‘Dodge’ has ensured his place in the pantheon of Limerick greats as an outstanding player, captain and role model.
Limerick hurling is on the crest of a wave. Na Piarsaigh are in the All-Ireland club final and everybody on Shannonside hopes that the title will finally come Limerick’s way. Na Piarsaigh, less than fifty years in existence, is a model of what can be achieved when a club is well organised and focussed. The club provides Limerick with outstanding hurlers and footballers and deserves to succeed. Success on the playing field could not happen without the selfless army of volunteers behind the scenes.
Ard Scoil Rís is in the heart of Na Piarsaigh territory and their success in the Harty Cup, the fourth in less than a decade, shows that talent combined with hard work and dedication is a recipe for success.
Limerick camogie sets out on a new journey also with John Tuohy at the helm. The Patrickswell clubman has experience at club and county level and is determined to bring Limerick camogie to a new level.
Limerick footballers are operating in Division Three but they are as dedicated and professional in their approach as any team in the country. In this issue, we meet Peter Nash and learn about his preparations for playing in the green and white jersey.
In over 100 schools throughout Limerick city and county, boys and girls are hoping that this will be their year. Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Luimnigh is the nursery from which the stars of tomorrow will emerge. Indoor hurling and camogie are in full swing since January and soon the action switches to outdoor. From the smallest rural school to the largest suburban school, there is a competition to suit the young players. In this issue, we look back at the football competitions of last term. This is sport at its purest.
Let the games begin!
