IT’S now 16 years since St Munchin’s College last claimed the Munster Schools Junior Cup title.
The Corbally nursery begin their quest for honours with a tie against Castletroy College on Thursday, February 6.
Coaching team: Head coach: Jason O’Brien; Backs coach: Pat Cross; Forwards coach: Ger Burke; Forwards coach: Darragh Cantillon.
Last cup success: 1998
Last season: Lost to Castletroy College in the quarter-finals
Squad: Aaron McNamara*, Aaron Rice, Adrian Costelloe, Charlie Carmody, Cian McNamara, Conor McNamara, Darren Radcliffe, Eoin Phelan, Eoghan Carr, Evan Maher, Gary McCoy, Garry Quilligan, Gearoid Organ, Jack Kenny, Jack Greenwood, James O’Halloran, Jason Kiely*, Jason Lipper*, Jude Pendejit, Kealon McMahon, Kieran Galvin*, Marcus Browne*, Mark O’Driscoll, Mark Sheridan, Padraig Campbell, Rian McNamara, Shane Corbett*, Thomas Grace.
Prospects: Lost the Limerick City Cup final to Crescent College after an impressive run to the final where St Munchin’s defeated Glenstal Abbey and Castletroy. The St Munchin’s Junior Cup management team is headed by Jason O’Brien, the former Limerick senior footballer, who has been senior coach with the Corbally school in the past. Ger Burke, Darragh Cantillon and Pat Cross are also members of their management team, so St Munchin’s won’t lack for preparation.
