Limerick All-Ireland victory to be brought to book

The cover of 'Tales from the Terrace' which is being compiled by Niall Deegan.

IT was one of those days when people will say in years to come, “I was there..” or “twenty of us got together in my house and watched it on television.”

Limerick supporter Niall Deegan from Rosbrien wants people to tell him exactly those kinds of stories: where Limerick people were and what was happening for them on July 17, 2022, when Limerick achieved three-in-a-row All-Ireland hurling glory.

Niall is writing a book to commemorate the thrills and celebration of the victory – aptly titled ‘Tales from the Terraces’ – and he wants Limerick Post readers to contribute their treasured memories.

Niall said: “I am reaching out to people who attended the match on that day to build a collection of stories to show what this day meant. Whether it was your struggle to get a ticket, where you were when the game ended, or anything that made that day special.

“I would also appreciate any photographs from the day – preferably inside or outside Croke Park. If you don’t have a story, a photo will do.  After all, a picture tells a thousand words.”

He’s aiming to have the project on shelves by Christmas.

“My hope is to get this book sponsored and to have 100 per cent of the profits go to the Milford Care Centre here in Limerick,” he said.

Niall would like readers to send stories and photos, preferably with the names of each person in the photo, to [email protected] and to spread the word about his quest for material.
