Murroe/Boher Camogie Club: Hard luck to our intermediate team who lost out to Crecora last weekend in their second championship fixture. Next Saturday (1st Sept) they will play Patrickswell at home. Well done to our minor team who kept their winning streak going against Bruff/Kilmallock in a very high scoring game. The girls have a break until October 6th for their second round. Well done to Ciara Oliver, Sarah Jane Flynn, Sophie Quaid and Orlaith Hickey who are part of the Ahane-Murroe/Boher team who have won their first four championship games. Next Tuesday (28th August) they will play Monaleen in Ahane. Next Friday sees our U16 team get their season up and running with fixture TBC. Our U6 & U8 players travelled to Claughan on Saturday for a fun day of camogie. Congratulations to Seamus Hickey and the Limerick senior hurling team on a fantastic win last weekend, a great achievement.

Murroe AFC Notes: Team news: The A team had a good win on a scoreline of 5-2 away to Summerville and then lost out to local rivals Cappamore on a 3-2 scoreline during the past week.
