U14s in All Ireland Final action this Sunday

Limerick senior hurlers may have had a bad day by the banks of the Lee last weekend, but the county’s under 14 ladies’ footballers are aiming to make history this Sunday when they take on Louth in the All Ireland C Final at the Crettyard GAA pitch, Laois.

Limerick captured their first Munster Final win in fourteen years when they beat Tipperary, and then went on to overpower Derry in the All Ireland semi final, to set up a place in the final against Louth. Limerick have already beaten Louth once this season, in the All Ireland Blitz Final in Kinnegad in May, but Sunday’s game will not be easy, and support would be appreciated. Throw-in on Sunday is at 2pm.

The Limerick panel includes local talents like Aoife Corbett (Monagea), Ciara Ryan (St Ailbe’s), Maedhbh McCarthy (Drom/Broadford), Lucy Ryan (St Brigid’s), Joanne Foley (Mungret/St Paul’s), Emma Hogan (Monagea), Katie Heelan (St Ailbe’s), Róisín Ambrose (Old Mill), Sive O’Halloran (Adare), Ciara Clancy (St Brigid’s) Andrea O’Sullivan (Ballylanders), Sineád Callinan (Ahane),  Lauren Ryan (Adare) Captain, Eimear Kirby (Knockainey), Orla Regan (Murroe/Boher), Emma Conway (Mungret/St Paul’s), Noirin Lenihan (Adare), Nicole Kenny (St Brigid’s), Anna Madigan (Murroe/Boher), Aisling Herbert (Ahane), Karen Mason  (Mungret/St Paul’s), Clare O’Meara (Mungret/St Paul’s), Rachel Fennell (Mungret/St Paul’s), Cathy Ambrose (Old Mill), Laura O’Shaughnessy (Gerald Griffin’s),  Ciara O’Brien (Mungret/St Paul’s) and Eileen Scanlon (Gerald Griffin’s).
