ST PATRICK’S GAA CLUB NOTES
All Ireland Champions:
Huge well done to Gearoid Hegarty and Limerick- a performance so good words cannot do it justice. Gearoid was immense, scoring 2-02 in the first half, adding crucial scores including the first goal after only two minutes. When a big game player is needed- Gearoid steps up time and time again.
St Patrick’s Gaa are so proud of Gearoid, a superstar and an outstanding player and role model for club and county. Limerick are All Ireland champions for the third time in four years, Gearoid deserves it all and more. These are truly remarkable times for Limerick Gaa.
It was a proud day on Sunday for the Hegarty family, the club, the parish and the county. Well done Gearoid and to Limerick.
Our Intermediate football team lost out to Mungret in a high scoring first round championship game on Thursday night at Croom Gaa. In a high octane first half, St Patrick’s should have led, but some missed scores, including a penalty, had the teams level at half time. Mungret took control in the second half, sitting back and using the space on the turnover to extend their lead and run out deserving winners.
Rathkeale are the opponents in round two, with a very short turnaround and no time to dwell it is a must win game if qualification for a county quarter final is to be achieved. Throw in against Rathkeale is 6.45pm in Askeaton on Tuesday.
St Patrick’s hurling team begin their championship campaign on Sunday against Monagea, the first of five games in the group. Throw in is 1pm in Askeaton on Sunday. We would like to wish the hurling team and management the very best of luck for the championship ahead.
Tickets for all championship games, under current restrictions, will need to be purchased online before attending.
Congratulations to Katrina Phelan who won our All Ireland Final goal predictor competition. St Patrick’s Gearoid Hegarty was the first goalcorer for Limerick, a big thank you to all who supported the fundraiser.
