Our club took part in the historic Torch Run
Last Saturday Milford played it’s part in GAA history as the club participated in the torch run which was carried from the birthplace of Michael Cusack, founder member of the GAA, in Carron, Co. Clare to Hayes Hotel in Thurles.
Despite atrocious weather conditions, a sizeable local crowd were in attendance to support our club
The torch was handed to Milford from our neighbours St. Patricks at the Groody Bridge and was run all the way to Hurlers’ by Milford members: Gerry Collins, John Cullinan, David Hawe Emmet McGinty, Gerry McGinty, John and Joseph Redington.
The lads received much support along the way and it was encouraging to see such a high level of interest in our national games still exists in Castletroy.

Anyone requiring tickets for the Limerick and Laois all-Ireland qualifier should contact the club secretary as soon as possible.

Our junior footballers entertained Patrickswell last Wednesday in round three of the city junior football league. Despite fielding a very under strength team, the Milford lads acquitted themselves very well throughout the match but despite a strong performance in a number of key areas, Patrickswell took the points following a 3-5 to 8 points win.

Junior football training on Tuesday and Thursday night at 7 o’clock in Roselawn.

Our club website continues to be one of the leading GAA websites in Ireland. The website now includes detailed maps of every GAA pitch in the country. Limerick ’s most comprehensive list of club fixtures and results remains available on the club website:
