Liam Aherne

Liam Aherne has been appointed IT County Officer by Limerick GAA County Board. The role of the IT Officer is to coordinate the implementation of the GAA’s IT strategy in the county and to ensure that official GAA IT solutions are in use by all clubs and county committees. Liam, who was Sport Editor with Limerick Live 95 FM for ten years and is now a marketing manager with Supermacs, will work alongside new Limerick County Board P.R.O., Hugh Murphy.

Liam, a McNamee Award winner, was responsible for many incredibly exciting radio commentaries involving local GAA teams over the years. We thank him most sincerely for sharing his love of Limerick GAA and his incredible passion for the games with us over the past two decades. We would like to take this opportunity to wish him every success in his new job - and in his new role as an officer of Limerick County Board.

Harry Greensmith

Imithe ar Shlí na bhFírinne
On behalf of our readers, we would like to extend sincere condolences to the family and many friends of the late Harry Greensmith. Throughout his life Harry was a very prominent figure in local GAA circles. He was also a prolific and highly regarded chronicler of GAA affairs in his native county. Among Harry’s published works is a critically acclaimed biography of Frank B. Dineen, the Limerickman who bought Croke Park for the GAA.

Harry Greensmith died on March 4th, 2018.

Limerick Winners on the Double

Limerick enjoyed success on the double at the 2018 Cornmarket Cumann na mBunscol National Awards at the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny.

The Green and White Magazine was named winner of the Best Publication category for the third year in a row and the fourteenth time in the last twenty years. The magazine is produced by Joe Lyons (Ballybrown NS) and Ciarán Crowe from neighbouring Patrickswell NS and has been in existence since 1996. Every club in Limerick buys a batch of the magazines which are then distributed to the primary schools in their area.

Doon CBS was named winner in the Best Small School category. ‘The award recognises excellence in the promotion of Gaelic Games, on and off the field, and nobody could argue with the achievement of Doon CBS,’ according to Bernadette Ryan who is National Chairperson of Allianz Cumann na mBunscol. The school submitted a project which highlights its commitment to Gaelic Games and the school’s record of success. Children from Doon CBS have appeared in Croke Park on All-Ireland Final day on many occasions as well as featuring in Limerick Primary Game selections.
