Well Done Mary I
Limerick’s Mary Immaculate College retained the Fitzgibbon Cup in style in 2017. Limerick was well represented on the winning team. Patrickswell’s Aaron Gillane was scorer-in-chief, notching up an incredible 3-10 and 2-09 in consecutive matches on the way to the final. Cian Lynch was man-of-the match in the final. Darragh O Donovan and Richie English also started (and starred!) for the Limerick college in the final (where Mary I. met D.J. Carey’s I.T. Carlow).
Former Limerick goalkeeper, Joe Quaid is the new manager of the Kildare hurling team. Among his star players are former Limerick underage hurlers David Reidy (Dromin Athlacca) and Richie Ryan (Ahane). Willie Banks (Old Christians) is the goalkeeping coach.
Ollie Moran is a busy man these days: away from his day job, he is coach to the Laois senior hurling team and analyst on Sunday Sport radio show.
Seamus Carroll, Limerick footballer and star handballer has joined crack Dublin outfit Castleknock where he is lining out with the likes of Dublin All Star, Ciaran Kilkenny.
Football on 3G
