ST PATRICK’S GAA CLUB NOTES
Hurling Street League:
St Patrick’s Gaa ever popular hurling street league will be held this Sunday October 27 at 3pm with the winners taking home the Niall Crosse memorial cup.
Always a very enjoyable day for our underage players it will be followed by the Halloween Party in the clubhouse afterwards.
Our Junior Footballers are in County Championship action this coming Tuesday night when they play the winners of the West, Ballysteen, in the Quarter Final (6.45pm throw in, Mick Neville Park). Best of luck to the panel and management team led by Michael Geary, Tom Downes, Tim O Connor Jnr and Myles Halpin.
Our U15 Footballers were beaten by a good Cappagh/Rathkeale team on Saturday morning in the U15 Division three County Final but put in huge effort in the green Jersey and there is a lot to be proud of, with many having bright futures ahead. Well done to the young panel captained by Josh McCarthy and management team led by Mark Phelan and Larry Cross.

Well done to our u11 footballers who were in Mungret for a county blitz. They topped their group by beating Mungret, Monaleen and Feohanagh/ Castlemahon. The girls were through to a semi final against Pallasgreen. Playing lovely team football they won the semi final and were onto the Cup final against Knockainey. It was a very close final with the lead changing several times. However, the girls were to run out of time and the whistle was blown with Knockainey winning by 2 pts. A huge well done to the whole team, who put in a superb effort from start to finish. Well done to the girls and management led by Barry Toomey and Paul Doherty.
