Primary Schools Coaching

This ongoing and help is always needed, so if you have an hour or so to spare and love the football and hurling, opportunity knocks! If you are interested, please contact for further details.

Spare Gear

If you have any small hurleys and helmets which are no longer needed they’d be very welcome by those coaching younger age groups in the club and schools. Just drop them to any training session or committee member and they will be added to stock and be available to the learners especially in schools where young players who are introduced to GAA may not have their own gear. Many of those who are introduced to the game in schools do not join the club!


Congratulations to the Limerick Senior Footballers who got their season off to a great start with a 1-13 to 0-14 win against Munster Champions Tipperary in the first round of Division 3 South at LIT Gaelic Grounds last Saturday May 15th.  It was great to see a strong Newcastle West GAA contingent on and off the pitch.  We wish the best of luck to Iain, Cian, Diarmuid, Billy & Shane as they travel to O’Connor Park to play Offaly next Saturday May 22nd in the second round of Division 3 South.  The game begins at 3pm and can be seen Live online on GAAGO.  Galway ended the Limerick hurlers 14 game unbeaten as we suffered our first defeat in almost 2 years with the Tribesmen running out 0-26 to 1-17 winners in Pearse Stadium last Sunday May 16th.  Next up for John Kiely’s men is a trip to Walsh Park v Waterford next Sunday May 23rd. The game begins at 3.45 and can be seen Live on TG4.
