Good news on injury front for Limerick hurlers

Good news on injury front for Limerick hurlers. There was better news on the injury front today for the Limerick hurlers today as Diarmaid Byrnes, Gearoid Hegarty and William O’Donoghue look set to be back in the frame for the All-Ireland SHC Qualifiers. The trio missed Sunday’s disappointing loss to Clare and their absence certainly didn’t help John Kiely’s team. Limerick start their all too familiar backdoor attempt on July 1st in round one of the qualifiers with some really tricky possible opponents. Dublin, Laois and Westmeath are already in the hat with the losers of Kilkenny/Wexford and the losers...

Ireland u20’s fall 32-28 to entertaining Scotland side. The Ireland Under-20s succumbed to their second defeat at the World Rugby U-20 Championship in Georgia, going down 32-28 to Scotland and in the process end their hopes in this year’s tournament.

Limerick pay price for missed chances as Clare progress

Clare prove too good for Limerick in Munster Semi-Final. Limerick must yet again negotiate a path through the All-Ireland hurling qualifiers if they are to feature in the business end of the 2017 season. A final score of Clare 3-17 to Limerick’s 2-16 means the banner county will now progress to play the winners of Cork and Waterford in the Munster final. John Kiely’s men paid the price for some errors – often self inflicted – and some some poor shot selection. Two Shane Dowling frees had Limerick ahead in the early stages before Clare wrestled total control of the...

A look back at the “Science” behind Limerick’s 1918 All-Ireland win

A look back at the “Science” behind Limerick’s 1918 All-Ireland win. On a day when the finely tuned hurlers of Limerick and Clare will take to the field in Semple Stadium, we decided to take look at simpler, less scientific time in sports science and nutrition. The great Limerick Sports Journalist Seamus O’Ceallaigh wrote a superb series of articles on Limerick Sports personalities across the 1950’s and 60’s in the Limerick Leader. Amongst the many luminaries that he wrote about was Dan Troy, a hurler of note with Claughaun around the time of Ireland’s push for independence. Dan played...
