MARY I’s first ever Fitzgibbon Cup win last weekend marked the last game for their manager Eamonn Cregan.
The famous Limerick hurler will hang up the whistle on a high note, which no one would have believed back in 1993, when Cregan agreed to help Noreen Lynch with GAA in the college.
With just 40 hurlers to choose from, Cregan managed to win the famous old trophy just three seasons into their time in the cup. The decision to enter the Fitzgibbon Cup back in 2013 raised some eyebrows, but Cregan’s vision for the college and the team shone through. The wise head on the sideline managed to control the pressure for his young charges who defeated favourites UL in the final after extra time.
