Patrickswell GAA Club Notes:

Junior A Hurlers:
Patrickswell were defeated by a strong Knockainey side in the County Intermediate Hurling League Final. It was a game of two halves, with the breeze having a major impact.

Kieran Long’s goal opened a nine-point lead after 15 minutes. Despite Knockainey scoring a goal, Patrickswell were still ahead by 1-7 to 1-2 after twenty minutes. Patrickswell increased the lead to 1-10 to 1-3 with points from Eoin Harmon, Cian O’Gorman and Darragh Ahern. Knockainey responded with a second goal and another point to trim the deficit to three points. Just before half-time, Eoin Harmon popped up with a brace of points to put Patrickswell 1-12 to 2-4 ahead.
Knockainey played with the breeze in the second half, with a devastating effect. The South Men rattled off eight consecutive points to take a three-point lead at 2-12 to 1-12.

Despite points from Gavin Carey and Peter Harty, Knockainey were 3-17 to 1-15 ahead with a few minutes left. Cian Enright’s late goal was a consolation. It had been a great League campaign overall, but Knockainey emerged as 3-17 to 2-15 winners.
