Munster Under 16 Football Tournament

The Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel sponsored Munster U16 Football Tournament took place recently (13th July) in brilliant sunshine in three West Limerick Venues, Mick Neville Park Rathkeale, St Marys/Sean Finns GAA & Adare GAA. This year saw a different format with the finals taking place on the same day. Kerry South took the honours in the Cup Final overcoming Tipperary in a very exciting game and Corcaigh were victorious in the Shield Final over the second Cork team. Throughout the day there were some exciting games of football served up and some great skill on display. No doubt many of these young players will go on to represent their county at Minor, U21 & eventually senior level.

First Round Results – Tipperary 2-13, Cork 1-7; Kerry South 3-12, Corcaigh 2-8; Kerry North 4-8, Limerick 2-03; Clare 6-14, Waterford 1-8. Cup Semi-Final Results – Tipperary 3-07, Kerry North 0-13; Kerry South 2-11, Clare 3-07. Shield Semi-Finals Results – Cork 4-10, Limerick 2-08, Corcaigh 8-17, Waterford 1-03. Shield Final Result – Corcaigh 1-14, Cork 4-02. Cup Final Result – Kerry South 0-10, Tipperary 1-05

A big thanks also to Munster Council, our referees, Adare & St Marys/Seans Finns GAA Clubs, the grounds man in Mick Neville Park, pitch coordinators and everyone who helped in any way.
