GAA Report 1996


The highlight of the year was the U14 team's great run in the championship culminating in a County Final appearance against Kilmallock. After defeating Pallasgreen in the East final they turned in a mighty performance beating Patrickswell in the County semi-final. Although victory in the final went to the boys from the South, this team did their club and families proud and gave great hope of capturing county honours in the not too distant future. This team also captured the East Feile na nGael title beating Caherline in a thriller. The U12s again captured the Eastern crown beating Ballybricken in the decider. The juvenile team reached the county semi-final but had to give way to Patrickswell in a low-scoring encounter. Our adult teams had a mixed year with the U21: holding on their East title and going on to lose to Adare in the County semi-final. The junior teams won both the Brian Butler Cup and league but relinquished their Eastern crown, as did our junior B team. The seniors narrowly lost out been crowned County league champions and were unlucky not to have an extended run in the championships. The minor team turned in some fine performances in their championship but were defeated in the semi-final by the eventual champions, Croom.
Our fund-raising continued throughout the year. A fashion show was held in the Spring and a most enjoyable evening was had by all. The Doon/Oola G.A.A. Golf Society again ran a successful two day golf classic in Tipperary while our final Sale of Work was held in October. The Club wishes to thank all those who supported and helped run the above ventures, and a special word of gratitude to those who continue to subscribe to the Limerick G.A.A. Development Draw and our weekly Lotto. As we look forward to 1997 we trust you will continue to support us and hopefully we will have many more of pleasure on the playing field.
