ST PATRICK’S GAA CLUB NOTES
City U21 Football Championship
St Patricks 2 10 Claughaun 3 05
Our U21 footballers reached the clubs seventh City U21 A football final in eight years with a fully deserved two point win over our near neighbours Claughaun under lights in the club field on Monday night last.
The sides were level at the break, St Patrick’s 7 points to Claughauns 2 1.
Midway through the half with the sides level, 4pts to 1 1,Claughaun were awarded a dubious penalty which they converted despite the best efforts of Cian O Brien in goal. This spurred our lads on for the remainder of the half, kicking the last 3 points from impressive midfielder Shay Mccarthy.
Our opening 4 pts came from Jack Doyle, Shay McCarthy, and a brace of points from Calvin Moran.
Saints started the second half in blistering fashion and had 2 4 on the board to move ten pts clear.
Our scores coming from a cracking Calvin Moran 1 1, Adam healy with an opportunistic goal, Shay Mccarthy adding two more points and a lovely pointed free from Jack Doyle. Complacency set in at this stage and Claughaun upped the ante and tacked on 1 4 without reply in the last 15mins to narrow the gap but St Patrick’s held out to gain another fine victory.
We have now qualifed for the City A Final against Kildimo/ Pallaskenry.

City U21 A Final
Our U21 team were beaten 2 07 to 8 points by Kildimo/Pallaskenry in the City A final on Tuesday night. In a tight game Kildimo/Pallaskenry took their goal chances, St Patrick’s had a couple of very good goal chances in each half but could not find the net and this proved the difference in the end. Well done to all on a fine effort and a big positive to see great numbers in the panel of players on the night.
