Matters regarding Limerick, Limerick pubs, Limerick hills, plenty culture please

He could have a belly of drink inside him and you’d hardly think he had a pint. Not an angry word would ever be said by him. I drank with him once or twice and had an escapade with him when he was driving the Perri Crisps truck. Thats a story for another day but suffice to say my sympathies go out to his family.


#3937

It was like throwing it into a barrel of sawdust. No effect.


#3938

It was just unbelievable and his temperament stayed the exact same throughout. In fact, if there was a row, he’d be gone the other way. Put a hurley in his hand and a Patrickswell or Limerick jersey on his back and he’d murder you.

And a great family man. Birdy idolised him, my heart goes out to the poor girl.


#3941

Genuinely cannot watch that again right now.


#3942

My uncles hurled with him for years and always re-marked on his ability to hurl from the front.

Is this confirmed? Terribly sad if so. Leonard was a good 'un.


#3944

RIP Leonard. Manys the chat I had with him while dossing from lectures in Mary I. An absolute gentleman.


#3945

That’s a lovely tribute. Bennis, Carey and Gillane, some continuity of talent across three generations. That was only recorded during the week I believe.

Funny hearing Ciaran talking about playing in goals. Didn’t he let in a few handy ones in a challenge to get himself back out field the same year :sweat_smile:


#3947

He had been invited up to the Allstars do tonight, I think he was to present the HOTY gong if he had been able.


#3948

Played in goal in county final in Kilmallock in ‘87. They beat Ballybrown. We won the minor.


#3949

He must have close to 10 county medals for Patrickswell? @Watchyourtoes


#3950

Easily. Dave Punch must have twelve.


#3951

Has to man he was still flying for the club in his late 30s! Funeral will be massive.


#3952

I think patrickswell won 15 in 30 years or something like that. Absolute dominance.


#3953

A club founded by a Tipp man :smile:


#3954

Didn’t realise you were a MIC man as well, what era?


#3955

Sure a lot of the NaP stalwarts were Tipp men too I believe
