Limerick GAA chairman John Cregan praised the work of many to ensure the finances are in a healthy state.
"Despite Covid restrictions the finances of the board are in a healthy state at a €260k surplus, which is a credit to our Treasurer Liam Bourke and all those who support him and Limerick GAA, through financial contributions and we have many," outlined the chairman in his address to convention.
"I want to acknowledge all of these for their support and generosity; The McManus Family, JP and Noreen through Adare Manor Hotel, Gerry McManus and our competition sponsors. Club Limerick’s Sean Scanlan, Paul Stapleton and Eddie Wiley along with their respective committee members have once again raised the fund raising bar for Limerick GAA," outlined Cregan.
"Tim Ryan and the Club Limerick draw committee have once again managed a further increase in membership. All of this fundraising work is very ably coordinated and supported by Siobhan Scanlon who goes above and beyond the call of duty at all times," he said.
