ST. PATRICK’S GAA CLUB NOTES
St Patricks 2 11 Newcastlewest 3 13
Our Intermediate hurling team were defeated in round two last Saturday evening in balmy sunshine in Croagh.
This was a much improved performance as we were down a number of players through injury and suspension but the effort and work rate could not be faulted.
Gearoid Hegarty was immense, ably assisted by a number of others and the game was level early in the second half, but with St Patrick’s having to win by a goal we had to chase the game somewhat and this made it all the more difficult.
Due to the nature of the 2020 championship, two defeats means we now play Tournafulla in a relegation semi final in early September.
Our Intermediate football team begin their championship this coming Saturday against last years County finalists Gerald Griffins in Askeaton at 7pm.
Tickets are limited and there has a been a nice demand so not many remain.
Best of luck to the team and management ahead of the coming championship from all in the club.
Our U12 hurling team played a good Patrickswell team on Thursday last in Rhebogue, with many encouraging performances in a superb night for hurling.
Its football this week when they take on Ballybricken at 7.30pm, also in Rhebogue.
Our U16 football team were beaten by Ballybrown in their first championship game on Monday night in Clarina, with a young team their was many fine displays.
Our Under 10s have been training regularly on Friday nights and their U10 blitzes will begin over the next few weeks.
A busy week for St Patrick’s girls. The U14s opened their 2020 season against Athea on Wednesday evening at home. The girls played well from start to finish, but lost out on the night. While the U12s were in action Friday evening in a challenge match against Monaleen. It was a beautiful evening for football and the girls got some lovely scores. Especially well done to the newer players. Training continues every Tuesday evening. The girls were also treated to a special visit from the premier league trophy, well the Liverpool fans were.
