Granagh Oct 19

Hurling: Inspite of the recent defeat of Granagh senior hurlers by Patrickswell 2-12 to 1-19 in the County Cup, in many ways it was a season of great Gaelic games achievement. Retaining the senior hurling status was most important to the local combined parishes. Winning the local hurling tournament and reaching the final confirms the senior panel’s progress this year. The highlight of it was Donal O’Grady’s captaining throughout the season. The hurling panel is managed by Seamus Stapleton, Willie Power, Paddy Hennessy and Brian Kennedy.

Rooska singer recalled: The late Tom McCarthy of West Limerick, who enjoyed such popular support in the Irish country singing circles during the 90s and 2000s, was featured this weekend on West Limerick Radio, presented by Pat O’Donovan, on his Story and Song programme. The late Tom McCarthy had a great choice of songs in his repertoire and included quite a few of his native West Limerick.
