U13 ETP start Inter League with win away to Clare
Michael Ryan & David Moloney on Target as U13 ETP's record opening win away to Clare

Our u13 E.T.P. squad travelled to Tulla Co.Clare today for the first round of the subway


In what was a horrible day for football on grass surface both LCDUL EPT and Clare etp can be proud

of the football games they put on for a large watching crowd.

The inter-league game finished on a score line of CLARE 1 LCDUL 2, what a excellent game of football

was seen, LCDL started the stronger and was controlling game with some nice play between the back

and midfield for the first ten mins, but credit to CLARE they found a way to get in to game and after

a some pressure they took the lead. the response from the lads was quick and after seeing an effort

cleared of the line Michael Ryan had another effort from 25 yards which the goalkeeper could only

parry and David Moloney was on hand to make it one all. THE second half was more like the first

with our boys on top of game with Shane Ryan pulling the strings. The second goal came after some

strong pressing by the team saw Sean Carroll split the CLARE back four with a great ball for Michael

Ryan to finish nicely into the far bottom corner. Again CLARE came back at us but some strong

defending and some top goalkeeping by Kevin Stanley, saw us come out on top.

The other game of the day saw our development team play our host. With some new boys playing

for the first time in a set up like this. we started well and were enjoying some nice play ,until we got

hit with a sucker punch off a goal after 12 mins. After that strike CLARE grew into game and some

nice play saw them take a deserve 3 nil in at half time. Credit to our boys they stuck to the way we

want them to play football and tried to get back into the game but as we pushed forward CLARE

caught us on the break and made it a score line of CLARE 5 LCDUL 0. The Score line might look one

sided but it was far from it.

The following are the first round of Inter League games for our U12 & U13 ETP Squads

Best of Luck to both Squads next Sunday and for the rest of the campaign.

Aisling break Kilmallock hearts in penalty shoot out after stalemate

Aisling Annacotty 1-1 Kilmallock AET, 4-2 on penalties

The Aisling-Annacotty U16 girls reached the 3rd round of the National FAI Cup on bank holiday Monday, on penalties, after a pulsating match in Annacotty. Kilmallock got off to the ideal start when, after only 5 minutes, Clodagh Doherty was put through 1 v 1, and calmly slotted to the net giving Kilmallock the early lead. Both teams competed fiercely and created scoring chances but it wasn't until the 70th minute that a superb volley from Susan O'Shea gave the Kilmallock goalie no chance and equalised the match for Aisling-Annacotty. After extra time still hadn't separated the 2 sides, the outcome of the match was decided by penalties. Clodagh Doherty and Amy Fitzgerald scored for Kilmallock while Alicia O'Callaghan, Emma Costelloe, and Sarah Hall converted for the home team. Aisling keeper Abby McCarthy saved 2 penalties and then scored the deciding goal herself putting Aisling-Annacotty through to the 3rd round of the FAI Cup.

Kilfrush come from behind to defeat Pallas in U13 Premier Division Opener

Kilfrush Crusaders opened their U13 campaign with a good 4-2 victory over a plucky Pallas Utd side in Pallas this evening. First real chance of the game fell to Evan McCarthy of Pallas after 5 mins but he pulled his shot wide of goal when put clean through by Scott Ryan Coleman. Pallas did take the lead shortly after when a free kick by Evan McCarthy was well saved by the Kilfrush keeper but Gavin Tobin was on hand to poke home the rebound. Kilfrush dominated for much the rest of the first half and duly equalised shortly after when a great ball by Shane Ryan put James O Sullivan through and he made no mistake to put the sides in level at half time. Kilfrush continued to dominate but were caught on the break when a long ball sent Gavin Tobin free and he lobbed the keeper for an excellent finish. It was all Kilfrush from here on with Shane Ryan, Jake McNamara and James O Sullivan causing all sorts of trouble for Pallas and with 10 mins to go Josh Sheehy brought them level again before Jake McNamara put them ahead with a fine run and finish. Mikey O Keefe finished the game off in the last couple of mins with a cool finish. Best on the day for the winners were Shane Ryan, James O Sullivan and Jake Mcnamara while for Pallas who tried very hard Scott Ryan Coleman, Gavin Tobin, Evan McCarthy and the keeper Danny Feeley who was Excellent.

PDP FAI workshops Limerick County 25 April 2017

“The introduction of the FAI Player Development Plan (PDP) in July 2015 saw the commencement of a uniform approach to the development of young footballers in Ireland across all schoolboy/girl leagues with the emphasis on a player-focussed model where the development of the players is more important than the outcome of the games they play. The FAI has been delivering PDP Workshops across the country explaining the plan and giving practical demonstrations of the 5v5 and 7v7 playing formats and the LCDUL are delighted to announce that the league will be hosting a PDP Workshop – delivered by FAI High Performance Director Ruud Dokter and FAI Grassroots Director Tom O’Shea - on Tuesday 25th April. The Workshop which is a mix of an indoor presentation (in Charleville Park Hotel) and a practical demonstration at Charleville All weather is open to all club coaches working with players from 6 to 16. The Workshop will run from 7.00pm to 9.30pm with registration taking place in the hotel from 6.30pm. Clubs have to contact the league in advance to confirm 1 officer and 3 coaches names, email address etc that will be in attendance. Please email information to

PDP FAI workshop Limerick County 25 April 2017

The LCDUL will host an FAI player development plan (PDP) workshop run by Ruud Dokter FAI high performance director in Charleville on 25 April 2017 from 19.00 - 22.00. The idea is to showcase the ideas behind the FAI PDP and to help all leagues and clubs to embrace the roll out. We have seen it benefit particularly in small sided games with kids getting so many touches of the ball instead of a load of players on the field and less than half of them getting touches. It will be a great honour to have Ruud and his FAI family in our league and i am sure all clubs will also get great benefit. We are requesting that all clubs will send one club officer and at least 3 underage coaches to the workshop. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me . I hope to have some promotional details in the coming days. Thanks Eoghan O Donnell

Cappamore U13 League Champions

Congratulations to Cappamore U13 who won the league on Tuesday evening. They had a great season and we hope the celebrations are enjoyed.


The LIMERICK COUNTY u13 boys rounded off their competitive interleague season on sunday 19th march against North Tipperary & Limerick District leagues respectively.

Match one versus North Tipperary was played in some wet & windy conditions on the UL astro pitch, but the conditions had no bearing on a good display from the county limerick boys despite going down 3-1 on the scoreline. From the 1st whistle the county lads were up for it after last weeks disappointing display.The trio of Darragh o`Brien, Aaron Moffat & Owen o`Sullivan set the tone in the middle of the field and we created three good early chances with Shane o`Brien twice & Jake McNamara denied by good goalkeeping. With conditions in our favour keeper Jack Mcnamara was a spectator for the 1st half as County dominated and playing with nice width from Paddy Bermingham & Jake Mc on the wings we eventually opened the scoring when Shane o`Brien latched onto a through ball an finished superbly from a tight angle ,from here to halftime more chances came for county and unfortunately missed as Harry Fox was creating chances with his attacking runs & intelligant passing from midfield. We were to rue those missed chances as two has to be said softly conceded goals early in the 2nd half put us on our heels, UP to this point the back four of Euan Sheridan,Paddy Kennedy, Noah Patterson & Conor Hynes had looked comfortable and the wind & rain in their faces was probably a factor in conceding these two.

U12 Limerick County vs. North Tipp

Limerick county U12 boys interleague squad of 23 played their 4th game in the competition on Sunday vs. North Tipp. It was a nice sunny day which should lead to some good cheer and good football. We were not disappointed All 23 lads came to the game with great spirit and willingness to do what was needed to get all three point s. We were eventual winners 2-0.

The second development game was another great game where the boys have given the coaches a headache for the next team selection against Limerick District. it was important that we were structure and patent and we were unlucky not to take the lead in the first half. Reaction to the second ball killed us in the second half so thats something we can work on at training. Well done to all the boys and thanks to the parents who drove and supported the team.


Limerick County u13 boys interleague squad played their 3rd competitive game of the series against CLARE league on sunday and lost 1-0 in a disappointing result in what was a scrappy poor game of football. County boys started on the front foot early on and an early chance fell to striker Shane o`Brien who`s effort was well saved by the clare keeper. The game then got bogged down in a midfield battle where county boys Darragh o`Brien, Killian Ahern & John English gave as good as they got. Unfortunately for us game wasn`t been played in the right areas and as such our wide men Shane o`Riordan & Harry Fox were seen little of the ball. Both defences were well on top,County back four of Owen o`Sullivan, Ewan Dillon, Noah Patterson & capt Paddy Kennedy solid and apart from Kian Smith in co goals dealing with a few crosses there was little saves or goalmouth action at either end to trouble the keepers.On the attacking side of things some underhit or misplaced passes was a feature of a frustrating first half.

The 2nd half began with a small bit of improvement going forward as we got the ball into more wide areas, but with ten mins in Clare took the lead from probably first shot on target in the game, after a deep cross was cut back a clare midfielder fired low into the bottom corner. Conor Hynes & Cathal o`Mahoney were introduced for county as we chased the game in a change of formation. IN a game were we never reached the levels which we have set ourselves we continued to battle to the the end and credit to the boys they gave it to the final whistle. the 2nd half pretty much mirrored the first after the early clare goal alot of huff & puff from both sides with both defenses on top , the quality was lacking from us the county today,our first touch poor & passes going astray so plenty to work on for us all going forward.Very little goalmouth action apart from a few half chances that went a begging. A bad day at the office or one of those days as the cliche says so hopefully a response next week .

U12 SFAI inter league County V Clare

Our u12 ETP inter league squad entertained Clare yesterday on a cold windy day in Charleville in the latest round of the subway Inter league. A slow game of football was to come in the first ten mins of the game as both teams got used to the weather conditions, after that the game came to life with Michael Ryan and josh Hartnett starting to run at the opposition and creating chances. The 1st goal came after some brilliantly pressing by David Maloney who took to ball off the full back and ran into the box to find Aaron Moffat waiting outside the box to tap into an empty net. The second goal was all down to David's hunger when he chased down a back pass to the keeper and got a toe the ball before the keeper to make it 2 nil. Credit to Clare they came back strong and forced our goalie Kevin Stanley into some good saves the highlight been a excellent 1v1 save. Clare did fine away through when they split our defence to create a chance which Kevin saved first but couldn’t stop the rebound. With the game 2-1 our boys response was excellent and a brilliant run from Jake McNamara found his midfield partner Aaron waiting to make it 3-1.

After an good start to the second half in which we created a few chances, Clare took a gamble and push us back for the last ten minutes and with bodies tiring they were rewarded with a goal for a free kick with 5mins to play but credit to our replacements on the pitch they stayed strong to pick up a deserved win on a score line of 3-2.

County got off to a lightning start from the first whistle, Owen o`Sullivan playing in striker Shane o`Riordan who`s effort was well saved by Desmond keeper. Only four mins into the game County took the lead, when Darragh o`Brien won possession and immediately found Harry Fox who beat the fullback and tucked away a fine effort in off the far post. County were on top in the early exchanges and from a pinpoint Harry Fox free kick delivery shortly after capt Paddy Kennedy rose highest but unluckily headed over. County were on top in the middle of the park with John English, Owen o`Sullivan & Darragh o`Brien pressuring the opposition in to mistakes.

U12 ETP V Kerry 16.01.2017

LCDUL under 12s ETP squad visited St Brendans park Tralee yesterday , for the latest round of the SFAI Subway inter league competition. On a wet damp day our boys took a few minutes to get a feel of the pitch, and had to weather an early Storm from Kerry. An excellent 1v1 save from Kevin Stanley keeping the score 0-0. After that our boys took control of the game, with Aaron Moffatt pulling the strings in midfield and the support play from our fullbacks callum Murphy and Cathal Kearns, we push Kerry back and it was only a matter of time before the goal came. The goal was scored by Jake McNamara, after some excellent pressing from Michael Ryan, he robbed the Kerry fullback and had the composure to find Jake in space to finish it off . But unfortunately 1nil never became 2, and after dominating the second half with Jake McNamara and Hugh Murane going close ,we were punished at the end when after dealing with 3 corners in a row a 4th dubious coner was awarded and it lead to a Kerry equalizer. A brilliant performance by our boys.

U13 LETP Clare blitz 15.01.2017

County u13s had their 3rd development blitz of four today in Tulla Utd grounds in Clare. Despite the poor weather some terrific football played.

1st game Limerick County 3-1 Limerick Desmond . We went behind early in this game from an old friend & squad member Adam Hickey finishing well to put Desmond 1 up. We weren't behind for long with a great slide through ball by John English into Shane o' Brien who tucked it away. Shortly after County keeper Ultan Hogan was out bravely to collect a dangerous through ball and upon collection, released it long for Shane o'Brien to control expertly, run on and finish with a delicate lob over the keeper. Midway through the 2nd half a strong dribble from Paddy Kennedy deep into Desmond half & then played onto supporting Colin Quaid who quickly fed his club mate Shane o'Riordan to score a nice team goal & secured 3-1 result. Feature of this game outstanding performance's in particular from Cathal o'Mahony & Euan Sheridan.

U13 LETP UL 11 Dec 2016

Limerick Desmond hosted yesterday's blitz which was held at Newcastle West.

4 teams took part, Limerick Desmond, Clare, South Tipperary and Limerick County.

Again, most outfield players got 100 minutes or more of football, with 75 minutes being the least amount. Although these games are non competitive, everyone in attendance might think otherwise as all games are fiercely contested.

In our first game we played Clare. We started well and Shane O' Riordan (Charleville)almost scored within 30 second on his return to the squad. His pace and direct running was a features of all games yesterday. We went 1 goal up with a well worked set piece goal that was set up by Killian Ahern and absolutely rifled to the net from an acute angle by Harry Fox. Harry played 2 consecutive 50 minute games yesterday and was a constant threat in both games and probably merits a man of the match award for both games. Clare came back strongly and scored an equaliser mid way through the second half.

U13 LETP UL 11 Dec 2016

A huge thank you to Cavanaghs of Charleville for their kind sponsorship of our friendly in Charleville. It's always great to see a local business investing in local kids. Please support our sponsors where you can. Thanks again Cavanaghs

U12 SFAI SUBWAY Championship

On a fab afternoon our U12 LETP squad took to the competitive field against Limerick Desmond in the first Under12 SFAI SUBWAY championship game. The full squad was available with no injuries and gave the coaching staff a real headache on selecting the starting nine. For the nine selected to start they found out that interleague football is played at a very high tempo with some slick passing and moving with no time to catch your breath. Jake McNamara had a few good chances but for the heroics of the Desmond keeper county would have had a goal. The first half was a very nervous one with the ball spending too much time in the air and not enough time on the floor. Limerick Desmond took the lead and I think this was the wakeup call for the county boys.

U13LCDUL ETP UL blitz 13.11.2016

Limerick County & District Underage League hosted the 1st of four planned Etp u13 soccer blitz days last Sunday in the astro pitchs of UL. Limerick County along with the underage leagues of South Tipperary, Clare & Limerick Desmond served up some top class competitive soccer, with many stars of the future on show. County played some good attacking soccer with great interplay between players a feature of their three games,players got up on 100mins of ball each so lot of tired legs after but the quality never dipped throughout and these games are very benifical to the ongoing development of the players. Limerick Co won the opening game 2-0 v Clare, went down 2-1 to South Tipp in 2nd game & finished with a 2-1 win over neighbours Desmond in third game. Our goalscorers on the day John English (2), Shane o'Brien (2) & Harry Fox. A terrific squad performance with all players excellent on the day, thanks to everyone who helped make it a successful day, UL staff, referees, players, parents & coaches. Limerick County squad. Ultan Hogan, Jack McNamara, Cian Smith, Eoin o'Connor, Paddy Bermingham,Noah Patterson, Euan Sheridan, Jeffrey O'Rourke, Killian Ahern, Conor Hynes, Colin Quaid, Ewan Dillon, Shane o'Brien, Cathal o'Mahony, Darragh o'Brien, Owen o'Sullivan, Harry Fox, John English & Paddy Kennedy(capt).
