Munster Club of the Year 2021
Our Dinner Dance will be even more of a special occasion as a result of some very welcome news during the week.
We have been awarded the Munster GAA club of the year award for 2021. This is fantastic recognition for the achievements of our hurling and football team’s historic county double winning season. The award, along with the county medals, will be presented to our victorious players and backroom team on Saturday night in the Templemore Arms at the Dinner Dance.
What a fitting way to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022! The Loughmore Castleiney Ladies Football Club was ratified this week and was announced on Tuesday the 8th of March. There is a huge amount of work that has gone into making this a reality and it is much appreciated by all in the club and parish. There has been an average of 40 women of all ages at training since the first session over 6 weeks ago. This club is a great way for women to meet new people from the parish and get active. We are looking forward to what the future holds for these women and this club.
Membership is now due for the new playing year. Adult playing membership is €100 and student membership is €50. Membership must be paid through the Foireann platform which can be found here.

Last weekend was a busy weekend for our players on senior inter-county panels in the National Hurling and Football Leagues.
On the football panel Sean O’Connell started for Tipp as they put back to back wins together. Tipperary defeated Wexford on a scoreline of 4-4 to 0-15. Tommy Maher came on as a sub.
The hurlers were less fortunate in Waterford losing to the home side on a scoreline of 1-28 to 0-21. Brian and John McGrath both started the game with Noel coming off the bench in the 2nd half.
The hurlers have a rest week this weekend while the footballers make the long trip to Cavan. We have nobody named to start this week but Willie Eviston, Conor Ryan, and Tommy Maher make the bench. We wish them all the best of luck.
