Back Issues

Welcome to The Green and White Website

We have reached the end of another school year. Has there ever been a busier term in the world of Allianz Cumann na mBunscol? In the early days of ‘The Green and White’, finding material to fill 16 pages was a challenge. Now 36 pages is never enough for all the features, news, action photos etc that vie for space in each issue. No sooner were the indoor hurls packed away for another year than the INTO Mini Sevens were centre stage. The County Finals, staged in Rathkeale, provided some great games, full of skill, honesty and endeavour. For some lucky boys and girls, an appearance in Croke Park on the day of an All-Ireland Final or Semi-final lies ahead. No doubt, those boys and girls are counting the days until they are stepping onto the sod of Croke Park.

For other young players, the Munster GAA Primary Game offers the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to line out on the Field of Dreams in your county colours on Munster Championship day. What a story to bring back to school the following day, with your Limerick jersey stashed safely away!

In this issue, we meet Billy Lee, Derek McGrath and Donal O Sullivan, to mention just a few. Broadcaster and Kerry football legend Dara Ó Cinnéide tells us of his high regard for the Limerick teams he met in Munster Finals. We salute the Limerick camogie team guided to a first ever Munster title by manager John Tuohy and captain Niamh Mulcahy, both of whom are primary teachers and Cumann na mBunscol activists. At second level, John the Baptist School in Hospital won FIVE All Ireland titles in less than three weeks!

We celebrate that incredible achievement in these pages.

‘The Green and White’ was named Best Publication at this year’s Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol Awards in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh. We are grateful for the support we get from Limerick County Board and each and every club in Limerick.

Behind every successful operation is a hardworking team. ‘The Green and White’ is no exception. We are indebted to regular contributors like James Lundon and Tom Aherne.

We are also indebted to photographers Seamus McElligott, Conor Wyse and Br. Dormer and all the officers of Cumann na mBunscol throughout Limerick who supply information, photos and results.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our next issue featured a Limerick captain holding an All-Ireland trophy aloft?

It doesn’t have to be a dream!

Luimneach Abú!
