Donal O’Sullivan steps down as Limerick senior football goalkeeper

Limerick goalkeeper and joint captain Donal O'Sullivan has announced he will step down.

After brilliant service, Monaleen’s Donal O’Sullivan (outgoing joint-captain) has announced his retirement as Limerick senior football goalkeeper.

In a statement, Limerick said the news “will be greeted with great disappointment”.

Football executive chairperson Wayne Fitzgerald stated: “Donal was a fantastic servant to Limerick and has been a role model to so many present and upcoming players. We wish him well in retirement and thank him for all the wonderful memories he has given to so many fans down through the years.”

Aaron O’Sullivan (Pallasgreen) is O’Sullivan’s likely successor.

Meanwhile, O’Sullivan’s clubmate, county camogie ace Aoife Neilligan has been named among the recipients of a Sports Scholarship for 2023/24 at Trinity College Dublin (TCD).

After a titanic battle, Monlaeen were pipped (4-7 to 0-18) at the extra-time post by St Joseph’s Doora-Barefield in the Munster Junior Camogie Final at the Ragg. Ellie Madden again top-scored for the Limerick champions, with a splendid haul of 11 points.
