An entertaining Division 1 league game between St Patricks and Eire Og, Unfortunately finished after five mins of the second half when the referee Anto Nolan had to call a halt as he was unable to continue due to injury. All in St Patrick’s wish Anto a speedy recovery & hopefully this injury set back will not interfere with his rise up the inter county career ladder. We expect the match to be refixed at a later date.

Massive credit to all players who showed great skill, commitment and passion. Training continues Sat 12-1pm only (no Friday training for the next 2 weeks). Cheers Steven, Tom, Conor and Paul.
