Welcome to The Green and White Website

It’s Springtime in Ireland and, despite the ravages of Hurricane Ophelia, Storms Dylan, Fionn and Emma, Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Luimnigh has hit the ground running! Springtime brings March winds, April showers but also indoor hurling, indoor camogie, Mini Sevens in boys and girls football, hurling and camogie.

2017 went out in a welter of excitement. Limerick won the All-Ireland Under 21 title for the second time in three years. What will 2018 bring? Limerick hurling followers get behind their team like nobody else. Will the Green and White Army be marching on Croke Park this summer? In this issue, we meet Limerick captain Declan Hannon. Declan made his mark as a player in the colours of Scoil Iósaf, Adare and West Limerick before wearing the Limerick jersey for the first time in the Primary Game. Now, he has the honour of leading a Limerick team intent on ending a famine that dates back to 1973.

In all four Divisions of Limerick, football competitions dominated the playing fields in Autumn of 2017. Limerick City captured the Sarsfield Cup while City champions St Nessan’s NS of Mungret won the County Shield. The girls of West Limerick were worthy winners of the Larkin Shield. There was a new name on the Celtic Image Shield as Mahoonagh NS proved to be unbeatable in their march to glory.

The Green and White met a hurling legend in Austin Flynn, who was an outstanding full back on the Waterford team that won the Liam McCarthy Cup in 1959. Austin had a distinguished career in the Waterford jersey but his memories of his schooldays in Abbeyside, and how they shaped his attitude to success on the playing fields, make for riveting reading.

There is much to look forward to in 2018. The Mackey, Cup, Neville Cup and all the other Cumann na mBunscol competitions will dominate our thoughts as Spring turns to Summer.

In this issue, you will find all the regular features that our readers enjoy...crosswords, cartoons, news from all parts of the city and county. This magazine relies on the dedication of the officers of Cumann na mBunscol who supply photos, results and so much of the material that fills these pages. Thanks also to James Lundon, Conor Wyse, Seamus McElligott of Sports Action Photography, Michael Fitzgerald of Herbertstown NS, Diarmuid Carroll of Ballyagran NS, Carl Musgrave of Manister NS, Stephen Walsh of Kilbehenny NS, Harry Coyne, Auspin Flynn and everybody who added some ingredients to the winning recipe that has seen The Green and White go from strength to strength for 22 years.
