A sponsored walk will take place for the club on Monday, October 31 at 12pm at the Millennium Centre in Caherconlish. The sponsored walk for the club will start and finish at the Millennium Centre. The Millennium Centre is a community based non-profit company in Caherconlish which opened in 2000 under the Caherconlish Caherline Community Centre. The centre serves the Caherconlish-Caherline community and wider areas, offering a wide range of services and activities. The centre serves as a focal point for the Caherconlish-Caherline community.

The fundraiser is open to donations on GoFundMe. Caherline GAA have raised almost €700 out of a €2500 goal. Pat Kennedy said, “GoFundMe gives us a broader reach to Caherline/Caherconlish ex-pats who might like to support our fundraiser from elsewhere in the country or overseas. Many thanks for your support, it’s greatly appreciated by all in the club!” Donations can also be given to any club officer.

Caherline GAA was founded in in 1884, making it one of the oldest GAA clubs in County Limerick. The club progressed from their group of six teams, divisional championships no longer formed part of the county championship after a restructure in 2020, to reach the county quarter finals.

The club won the Limerick Junior Hurling Championship four times, most recently in 2021 with a 1-13 to 0-10 win against St Kieran’s from Kilcoman. The club also won the Limerick Senior Hurling Championship three times in its early years.

Everyone is welcome to join the sponsored walk and get involved in the fundraiser on October 31.
