ST. PATRICK’S GAA CLUB NOTES
City U21 B Hurling Final:
Southside Gaels 5 21
Crecora 4 24
A brilliant final that ended in a draw after extra time,with the lead changing hands on numerous occasions.Southside Gaels led by nine points at the interval but credit to Crecora who fought back admirably to level late in the game.
In extra time it was Crecora who forged ahead ,but the Gaels fought back and Calvin Moran,who was prominent throughout, even had the chance to win the game with a 65 yard free with the last puck of the contest .It just tailed off wide and the sides finished level with a replay required.
In truth it would have been harsh to have a losing team on the day,credit to both sets of players on an outstanding game of hurling in Rathkeale.

St Patricks Gaa will once again March in the Parade for 2019:
A tradition we are very proud of ,as the club is named after our patron saint and we are also the oldest Gaa club in Limerick City.
Past experiences include when the club proudly led the parade as Grand Marshall with Emma O’ Driscoll . We performed hit single ” here come the boys” in front of the Mayoral stand.
In 2011 we celebrated 125 years since the club was founded as young and old alike marched on O’Connell Street.
We will be Number 25 in the Parade this year.
Any club member or player of any age who wish to march on Sunday are always very welcome:
MEETING AT ST JOHNS SQUARE @10.25AM
