Congratulations to all our young boys and girls who received their First Holy Communion recently and best wishes to the older one who will be making their Confirmation next week.

After a very successful Summer Camp last year we had decided to go with VHI GAA Cul Camps again this year. The camp will run on the first week on August, Monday 1 to Friday 5, 10.00am to 2.30pm. Application forms will be handed out in the coming weeks. The cost of the camp is as follows: child 1 €55, child 2 €45, child3/4/5 €35. Each child will receive a jersey, togs, socks and a bag.

Thanks to all so far who have given in black bags of unwanted clothes to cover the cost of a set of jerseys for the U8 and U10 girls. We will continue collecting until May 31. Thanks for all your support!


The girls travelled to Moycarkey on Sunday, May 8 to play Moycarkey under very strong gale force conditions. The opposition got off to a great start and continued in front for the first half scoring 6.7 to our no score. At the end of the first half Aoife Howe got injured and had to come off which was a huge loss to the team. The girls regrouped and played a great second half and scored 4-6 with Moycarky scoring just a point. Well done to all the girls for such a great effort. Thanks to Mary and James. Their next game will be against Aherlow. No fixture yet.


On Tuesday 10 we played Templemore in Hannon Park. It was a very tight evenly matched game with our girls coming out on top by a point. The team was: Grainne Cole, Aoife Ryan, Maria Nash, Laoise Looby, Katie Cunningham, Megan O’Neill, Caitlin Buckley, Emer Quirke, Lara O’Dwyer 1-1, Kayleigh O’Farrell, Orla Landers, Jenny Quirke, Ber Leahy 0-1, Angela Heffernan 0-1 and Aoife O’Halloran. Subs - Aoife O’Dwyer, Clodagh Cunningham, Becky Ryan and Jade Crowe.

Their next match is against Moyle Rovers in Lattin on Wednesday 18. Many thanks to Danny, Marguerite, Cathy and Joe.


The lads played Golden in Bansha on Monday 9 in their grou semi final and came out second best. Thanks to Michael, Roger and Mick.


Our U14s got the championship off to an ideal start with an excellent win over Eire Og/ Annacarty on Thursday evening last in Sean Treacy Park. They are in the league final also this week, so things are looking very well for this group. Thanks to Kevin, Tom and Roddy.


Our sincere sympathy to the English Family, Cullen on the death of Nicky English, Newport, and to the English Family, Ballinalard on the death of Fionnula’s father.

Community Games

There will be a meeting in the GAA hall on Thursday May 19 at 8.30pm to finalise details for entries to the track and field athletics county final. Parents are requested to attend.

Congratulations to our Emma Ryan, Maeve Carew, Hazel Foley and Louise Marnane who won silver medals in the U16 girls swimming squad in the county final in Clonmel.

Recent Death

The death has occurred peacefully in Beech Lodge Nursing Home, Bruree of Thomas Long, Ballinulty, Cullen. A former partner in the Limerick offices of accountancy firm, Price Waterhouse Cooper, he combined this work with the management of a successful farming business at his home in Cullen. Gaelic games were his abiding interest, both as a player with his native Feenagh and later as a passionate follower of Limerick GAA fortunes. He liked nothing better than reading all the newspaper match reports and engaging in lively debate on the subject of the county’s most recent games. There was a large attendance at the removal of his remains from Whelan’s Funeral Home to St. Patrick’s Church, Cullen and at the following day’s Requiem Mass and interment in Shronell cemetery. Sympathy is extended to his sons James and Aiden, his daughter Noreen and his many relatives and friends.

Sacristan’s Collection

The annual church sacristan’s collection will be taken up at Mass in Cullen on Sunday, May 22. As this collection provides an opportunity for the congregation to show their appreciation for all the work Mary does during the year, it is hoped that there will be a generous response.

Table Quiz

There will be a table quiz in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation in Quinlan’s, Cullen on this Friday night, May 20, commencing at 10 pm.
