The Wicklow U20 football championship continued on Sunday 11th November in Dunbur where St Patrick’s took on the visitors from the West Baltinglass. The lads battled hard in the first half against the wind in treacherous conditions. A harsh first half penalty in which Pat Sammon got a hand to, settled Baltinglass who were playing with wind leading with the half time score: St. Patrick’s 0-02 Baltinglass 4-03. St Pats upped their game in the second half and kept going to the end but had left themselves with too much to do. Full time score St. Patricks 0-06 Baltinglass 4-06.

Well done to the senior lads who visited the local primary schools with Miley during the week. All the students gave a fantastic reception and were delighted to welcome their Hero’s.
Our U7 footballers and hurlers celebrated their year with a presentation night in the clubhouse on Friday night. The Miley Cup was a special guest along with Senior football captain Dean Healy and a number of the other senior players which was great to see. The boys were presented with club shorts, a Gaelic ball and a sliotar – so no excuses for not practicing at home! Well done to all the boys and thanks to coaches Willie, Tomás, Alan, Peadar, Shane and John Joe for their work throughout the year.
Our U11 hurlers had their end of year presentation in the clubhouse on Thursday night celebrating a successful year with over 30 kids involved and all making great strides over the season. Guest of honour was Tipperary Senior team coach Tommy Dunne. County football manager John Evans and man of the match in the county final Stephen Duffy also joined us with words of encouragement for all the boys. The boys got great advice from Tommy on how to keep working on their skills and to keep enjoying the game.
