PATRICKSWELL GAA CLUB NOTES
UNDER 21 HURLERS: The U-21 hurlers maintained their 100% record in the Premier Hurling Championship after beating Kildimo-Pallaskenry at a rain-soaked Gaelic Grounds.
Our opponents adapted to the terrible conditions and dominated the opening fifteen minutes. Patrickswell found themselves four points down and under consistent pressure. John Flynn notched the ‘Well’s first point to settle some nerves; however Kildimo-Pallaskenry cancelled out this score immediately.
