St Patrick’s club notes week July 10th

Congratulations to all involved with our Senior Hurlers on their first win over Carnew in the championship in over 25 years! St Patricks were worthy winners on a full time scoreline of 2-12 to 1-12 over Carnew Emmetts. Andy O’Brien will get the kudos for his sweet goals but George O’Brien at midfield, John Connors and John ‘Dee’ O’Brien were also massively vital to this victory. Their start to the second half was key.

Well done to Pat’s U16 Ladies team who had a great local derby against our neighbours Rathnew in a thriller of a game on Tuesday evening in Dunbur, which resulted in a win

Well done to the St. Pats U11 blue football team for a brilliant performance and result against AGB on Wednesday. Well done to St Pats U11 white football team for a great performance and commitment against a strong Laragh team on Thursday evening. Great to see over 35 U11 footballers playing over the last 2 nights.

Hard luck to our U15 lads who travelled to Tinahely who lost out to a strong Tinahely team on Wednesday. We went with 16 players with 10 players not available. The lads fought hard and should be very proud of themselves and played some great football.
