|Congratulations to the Ireland Ladies Hockey Team who won silver at the World Cup finals in London at the weekend.|
Limerick will play Galway in the All Ireland hurling final in Croke Park on next Sunday week, 19th August.
The Tribesmen recorded a narrow one point win over Clare in a thrilling replay at the weekend.
Limerick will be attempting to bridge a 45 year gap to their last All Ireland senior success in 1973. They have won seven titles to date.
Galway are the present All Ireland champions and are hoping to retain their title. They have won the competition five times.
Bookmakers make Galway 4/7 favourites with Limerick on offer at 13/8.
THE LIMERICK owners of a café in Kerry are offering free breakfast for a year to whoever can give them two All-Ireland final tickets.
The Beach Cove Café in Waterville was taken over by Limerick couple Paula O’Mahony and David Gorey in June.
The tempting offer of a year’s free breakfast was stuck up on the window of the café and posted on its social media channels this weekend.
“We decided we really needed tickets as we haven’t had a day off since we opened,” said Paula, who is from Bruff. Her husband David is from Castletroy.
DEPARTING Kerry manager Éamonn Fitzmaurice has said he hopes his successor will be allowed "time and space" to achieve success after what he called a "negative atmosphere" surrounding the players lately.
Fitzmaurice saw his team beat Kildare by 12 points in their final Super 8s game this evening, but Monaghan’s victory in Salthill ensured Kerry’s exit, with the 2014 All-Ireland winning manager confirming his resignation after six years in charge.
The Finuge native, who won three All-Ireland titles as a player and guided the Kingdom to six successive provincial titles, says the moment has come to step aside.
