Munster Champions!

"History makers ... and dream chasers!" That was how manager John Tuohy described his players after Limerick won the Munster Senior Camogie Championship for the first time. Ever!

Cork were going for their 60th title: Limerick for their first. Captain, Niamh Mulcahy led the way for Limerick. The 11 points clocked up by the Ahane powerhouse helped Limerick defeat Cork, the reigning champions, by 1-13 to 0-14.

Heartiest congratulations to the team and management. May they enjoy further ground-breaking, history-making successes in 2017 ... and beyond.

South Limerick are Neville Cup Champions

South Limerick won the coveted Eithne Neville Shield when they defeated West Limerick in a thrilling final at the Gaelic Grounds. Limerick camogie manager John Tuohy was an interested spectator and he must have left the stadium confident that the future for Limerick camogie is bright. Ciara O Riordan of Effin NS played a captain’s part, scoring 2-3 in the final.

South Limerick are 2017 Mackey Cup Champions

South Limerick retained the Mackey Cup (Inter Divisional Primary Schools Hurling title) at the Gaelic Grounds on May 23rd.
