Well done lads!
Our Junior A Footballers travelled to league leaders Laragh on Thursday evening. In a tough away fixture with a reduced panel, Laragh ran out winners on a score line 2-18 to 1-06. Scorers for St Pats: R. Marron 0-03 (3f) A Small 1-00 C McGettigan, J Pettigrew, S Bouchier 0-01 each. Thanks to the players who travelled because of shortage of numbers and fulfilled the fixture.
A big well done to Coordinator Georgina Cruise, Ladies Chairperson Stephen McNulty, Coaches John Gerard McGettigan, Donal Marron and of course all the Gaelic 4 Girls on a brilliant 8 weeks of training. There was a great turn out each week. We welcome you all into the club.
