GAA: Kilbehenny National School recently enjoyed the visit of the Munster Senior Hurling and the minor Hurling Championship cups. They were proudly brought to the school by Ollie Coffey, County Coaching Officer, who was overseeing the appointment of Johnny O’Mahony as the new schools coach to replace Kieran O’Callaghan, who served both schools very well over the past few years. Mossy English has taken over as the Schools Coach in Anglesboro, he is also replacing Kieran. Best of luck to both schools with their two new coaches. The evidence shows that the coaching must be working well, as there are two girls from each school on the South Limerick Primary Schools girl’s team. They are through to the final of the competition. They recently defeated the east division in the semi final. Best of luck to Roisin Breedy and Chloe Cleary from Kilbehenny and Amy O’Connor and Molly Ryan from Anglesboro.
