Players Development Fund: Bruree GAA is holding its Player Development Fund annual draw again this year. The 2009 draw has €1,000 in cash as a first prize in each of four weekly draws. There will also be one prize of €200 and three of €100 for each draw. And the good news is that the subscription is still the same - just €20 for the four draws. The first draw will be held on Monday, November 30th, with the other draws on subsequent Monday nights. Contact any member of Bruree GAA to join the draw.
The next committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 11th, at 9.30 pm at the Central Bar. Any full draw cards with money can be returned on that night.

Juvenile GAA
The Dawn Milk Under 12 League football finals were played at the Gaelic Grounds with over 1000 children participating from 52 clubs in a brilliant day of football. The day started early on Sunday morning and continued throughout the day into the dark of the evening as each club had their 40 minutes to impress in what was a day to remember. The floodlights aided the playing of a number of the evening games and indeed this added an extra thrill for those players lucky enough to display there skills underneath them.
Dawn Milk provided the refreshments for each player after each game and the milk and juice were welcome because each team put in such an effort that it can only bode well for the future of Limerick football. The games finished up just before 7.00 pm and, as the lights went out at the Ennis Road venue, it brought to an end a magnificent day for Limerick GAA.
Bruree played Dromcollogher/Broadford, winning on a score of 4-4 to 2-5. Bruree’s scores came from Aaron Fitzgerald 2-2, Shane Feane 1-0, Owen Carey 1-0, Seamus Lyons 0-1 and Gearoid McCarthy 0-1. Well done to Eva Lyons and Emer McCarthy who played their final game for the club on the day. Thanks to mentors Conor Howard and Paul Fitzgerald for all their hard work through the year. The Bruree team was Ciara Daly, Eva Lyons, Emer McCarthy, Cian McCarthy, Shane Feane, Aaron Fitzgerald, Thomas Dwyer, Seamus Lyons, Brian Sexton, Jack Murphy, Gearoid McCarthy, Owen Carey, Dara O’Driscoll, Ciaran Sexton, Tommy Cronnolly, Sean McCarthy. Well done to everyone involved.
