GAA Championship Watch 11-12 May / ESB GAA Club
No surprises on the opening weekend of the Championship with Mayo & Galway having successful trips overseas v New York and London respectively.
Turing our attention to this weekend, although the Treaty county is still talking hurling, this weekend ESB eyes will be on the Limerick footballers. Our very own Tommie Childs will be part of the Limerick setup with a tricky away fixture in Semple Stadium to neighbours Tipperary on Saturday evening. Tommie is an NT based out of Rosbrien in Limerick. Last year he was part of the Networks team from Limerick who were narrowly beaten at the semi-final stage of the ESB 7s tournament to eventual winners Leopardstown Road. As a towering, powerful midfielder he also played an instrumental part in bringing the Energy Cup back to ESB in November in the annual challenge with Ervia / Bord Gais.
On the hurling front, one of our most recently appointed staff members, Caolán Conway will be involved with the Dublin Hurlers on Saturday evening as they take on Kilkenny down in Nowlan Park.
Caolán joined Electric Ireland as recently as Tuesday this week and I’m sure we’ll hear lots more about him in the future. Ádh mór ar Tommie & Caolán.
Elsewhere there is other action on Saturday:
Wicklow v Kildare (Leinster Football)
Clare v Waterford (Munster Football)
And on Sunday:
Roscommon v Leitrim (Connacht Football)
Wexford v Louth (Leinster Football)
Meath v Offaly (Leinster Football)
Tyrone v Derry (Ulster Football)
Galway v Carlow (Leinster Hurling)
Waterford v Clare (Munster Hurling)
Cork v Tipperary (Munster Hurling)
The most All Stars won by any Derry player has been 4, won by both Tony Scullion and Anthony Tohill. Our own Derry man, Kevin McCloy of E&MP, picked one up in 2007 (at full back). Kevin was also an accomplished hurler and played for the Derry team that won its first Ulster title in 2000. However, he concentrated on football from 2001 on after being called up to the Senior Football squad, making his championship debut at full back against Antrim
